The Travelling Books Fair is coming!
Opening times: Every lunchtime in the hall.
After school on Monday 17/11/14 and Thursday 20/11/14 in the library. There will be lots of great books and special offers. The more books we sell, the more free books we get for the school. So please come along and support the fair.
On Wednesday afternoon, November 5th, in the afternoon, Year 3 held their annual Sandwich Café. The children designed and made their own sandwiches and the parents were invited to join in the tasting and sampling!
We would like to send a big thank you to all the parents who helped to supervise the sandwich making, also those who supported their children during the afternoon.
The Year 3 Team
Recently a terrible event occurred in year 6…we were all evacuated! We arrived at school and were issued with identity cards and gas mask boxes, placed into pairs and FORCED to trudge many miles to the not so local billeting office. The door crashed open and we were packaged off to local families to begin a new adventure. Shopping became tricky using old money, so was remembering if you had already scoffed your ration of sweets that month! SHOCK HORROR in school when you were introduced to THE CANE!!! Screams and screeches were heard from the Anderson Shelter, especially the boys, during an air raid. Lastly, tiptoes and holding your breath were the order of the day as we crept through the ghost tunnels far beneath the Nothe Fort! All in all a fantastic experience was had on our wonderful evacuee experience. A massive thank you to all involved in costume making and running the day for everyone to enjoy.
The Reception Classes celebrated the end of their topic “You, Me and Everybody” by inviting parents and relatives to their class cafes. The children made all the food they sold themselves including sandwiches, pizzas, cakes and biscuits. They even made chef’s hats for themselves! The turn out was fantastic! Thank you to all parents and relatives that supported the event.
CHANGE TO ORDERING SYSTEM FOR KS2 HOT SCHOOL MEALS
From October half term, all meal orders will need to be placed online, the KS2 Office (Junior School) will no longer be handling manual transactions after 13th October. This includes orders for children entitled to free school meals (FSM), parents of all children entitled to FSM will be required to select menu options to ensure their child receives a meal each day.
A letter regarding this change was sent home yesterday; it is also available on the School Meals page of this website should you not have received it. Other documentation relating to the KS1 Universal Infant Free School Meals is also on this page and much is also relevant to KS2 parents, particularly to “Online ordering help”
Please visit www.dorset.mealselector.co.uk to register and if necessary get your child’s entitlement to free school meals confirmed. We have been informed by Chartwells, the meals provider, that the menus for after half term will be available online towards the end of this week.
Year 4 had an action-packed day when they found themselves joining the Roman Army, taking orders from Mr Stone – our very strict centurion. As well as practising their combat skills with their Roman swords and shields, they also learnt a great deal about what life would have been like for a soldier in the Roman army.
Dorset County Council has put together an online feedback form to gather views from all schools and parents about the quality of the free school meals service. They would appreciate if you could fill out the short survey to tell them about your experience – good or bad. The form is available Here
What a lot of Twits and Fantastic Foxes at Wyke Regis Junior School for Roald Dahl Day! School Uniform was abandoned, teachers took the day off and some Roald Dahl characters took control of the school. Miss Trunchbull was spied striding around the halls. Mr and Mrs Twit were eating spiders and worms in the hall. Esio Trot was caught sneaking into lessons and George and Grandma were mixing some marvelous medicine for tasting in Year 4.
Everyone really got into the spirit of the day and the children had an amazing time. They experienced some weird and wonderful learning, whilst showing off their creative side, with amazing costumes putting a smile on the school day. A huge thank you to everyone who took part and helped us.
