Theme of the Term: Empathy

Dear Parents and Carers,

Track and Tracing
The Local Authority have asked our school to help with Track and Tracing over the Easter period. Could you please email the office if your child tests positive for COVID so we can alert other families who might need to have children isolating. Thank you for your cooperation, the email address is office.3257@wychwood-pri.oxon.sch.uk

After School Clubs
Government Guidance has been updated to allow for schools to offer sports clubs, so I am pleased to say we will be offering Football after school once we return from the Easter break. Letters have been sent home with children today.

Support for Katherine House
Thank you to Mrs Barrett for donating her spider plants in aid of Katherine House. All the plants were gone on the first day!

Young Artists’ Summer Show
We have registered for this year’s Summer Show. Submissions are open until April 26th. To find out more please click this link- https://youngartists.royalacademy.org.uk/

Silver Birch
Today we say goodbye to Miss Hill who has been teaching in Silver Birch. Miss Hill has been working with us for a couple of years and will be missed by the staff and children at Wychwood. We wish her all the best as she moves to another school.
Miss Brown has spent some time meeting with Miss Hill and the children, and I know she is looking forward to teaching when we return from the Easter break.

Congratulations to Mrs Loader
It is with great pride that we are able to share with you that Mrs Loader will be moving on to her first Headship at Bishop Loveday CE Primary School in September 2021. Of course, she will be missed here at Wychwood; her drive, enthusiasm and commitment to supporting all the children will be hard to replace. Our search for a new Deputy will commence and I hope to share some news with you soon. In the meantime, we have Mrs Loader for the summer term!

Football Clubs
We are sorry but the actual timings for the football clubs were left off of the booking form. All three clubs will run from 3.15pm until 4.15pm each day.

End of Term
Today we celebrated the birthdays of those children who had a birthday between January and March. Moving forwards, as the Lockdown eases, we will hand birthday celebrations back to the parents!

Birthday Book Donations
Happy birthday to Dylan (Silver Birch), Jemima (Willow), Jess H (Chestnut), Thea (Rowan) and Molly (Sycamore). Thank you for donating a book to your class. We hope you have a lovely day. If you would like to donate a book to your class, please collect a donation sticker from the school office to stick your name and a message to your class in the book.

Have a lovely Easter everyone, please be safe and we all look forward to having the children back on April 19th!
