Term Round up

Here, at Wilton we are at the end of term and it’s been one full of hard work, lots of learning and lots and lots of fun.

In the last few weeks we’ve had lots of new books to read and our Christingle service.

Just last week EYFS and Year 1/2 performed their Nativity show for their parents and families.

We had our amazing Christmas Fayre, starting with our choir welcoming all families with some beautiful singing and lots of help from children in our Year 5/6 class. Prizes were won and lots of cakes were eaten, Yum Yum.

Our amazing Choir also took part in Choir festival at St Nicholas church, some of whom performed solos. Each and every child showed just how hard they had worked in practice leading up to the performance.

Our choir also visited Brookfield care home to sing for the residents.

For this final week we enjoyed an amazing Christmas dinner on Tuesday and then Wednesday the children had their Christmas Parties.

We have had an amazing term since we came back in September and we look forward to carrying it on in the New Year.

We want to thank all our families for their support throughout the last year and we wish each and everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We’ll see you when we return Monday 8th January

Breakfast Club

Did you know we do a breakfast club every morning? You can bring your child in, knowing they’ll get a good breakfast before they start school.

This is open to everyone and can be booked in the clubs section on the school gateway app.

It costs £1.20 for each morning your child attends and will resume in the new year.

Diary Dates and Reminders

New dates will be announced in the new year.

Attendance

Attendance every day is vital for your child’s progress unless they are too unwell to learn. It is your responsibility to inform the academy if your child is going to be absent by 8.45am each day of their absence. You can contact the office on 01642 453374.

This weeks best attendance goes to…..

Missed Learning

8.5 days of missed learning occurred this week due to unauthorised absences. Unauthorised absences are for holidays, parents/carers not contacting the academy or any other unexplained absence. With most minor ailments, children can be in school, so we really encourage you to think about keeping your child at home.

100% Attendance

58 children achieved 100% attendance this week which is Outstanding!!! 

Can you get 100% when we return?

Lunch Menu

Our lunches are provided on a 3 week rota. When we return choices will be from Week 2.

Nut Free Academy

A reminder to all parents we are a Nut Free Academy, please read below.

Headlice

There would appear to be a problem with head lice in the academy.  Several parents have informed us that their child has headlice; obviously this must mean that there are other children who also have the problem. 

I have taken this opportunity to provide some up-to-date advice for treating headlice and I would ask every parent to please check their child’s hair tonight and every night and treat if necessary. 

It is not sufficient to simply shampoo your child’s hair; this will not get rid of the lice – parents should visit a chemist, supermarket or see their family doctor to purchase or obtain a prescription for headlice lotion and follow the instructions.  An alternative method, and one which does not involve the use of chemicals, is as follows: 

  • Fill a sink with water 
  • Wet the child’s hair 
  • Apply conditioner 
  • Comb (with a fine tooth comb or nit comb) the child’s hair into the sink.  If there are any lice they will fall out into the water. 

It is recommended that the above treatment be done for at least 4 days. 

If you know your child has headlice, please treat it as soon as possible and check your child’s hair every night.   

The school nurse can be contacted via school, if any further advice or information is needed.

School Uniform and PE days

Please make sure that all items of clothing, including coats and packed lunch bags are clearly labelled with children’s names, so it is easy to find their owners.

All children have been provided with a t-shirt and shorts in a bag for PE lessons but they need to have their own trainers/plimsols in school please. Plimsols will be provided if needed. As the weather is changing, you may want to send in a tracksuit for children to wear outside during PE lessons.
