Jasmine and Ruby from Year 4 excitedly came to visit Mr Lording this week and earned a Headteacher Award sticker. The girls had created two posters (and a song) in honour of both Anti-Bullying week and Children in Need. We felt this fantastic, creative and thoughtful work needed to be shared with everybody.
On Saturday 17th November at 10am we are holding an open morning for parents of children who start school in September 2019. There is also a chance to visit the school at 9:30am and 1:30pm on Wednesday 28th November and Monday January 18th.
Don’t forget this Friday (16th) is Children in Need day. Children can wear something spotty for a £1 donation for this fantastic cause
FOMO Fireworks have been rescheduled for Friday 23rd November. Tickets bought for the previous date are still valid. However, if you would like to purchase additional tickets they will be on sale after school next week on Mon, Tues and Weds.
Unfortunately, due to a severe weather warning the company organising tonights fireworks has been forced to postpone the event. We are working today to secure a new date and will inform you once it is confirmed. All tickets will be valid for the new date once set.
Monday 12th November is the start of Anti-Bullying week. We will be having an odd sock day as a celebration of difference! Children are encouraged to wear odd socks to school, the odder the better!
Year 5 are hoping to put on a star gazing event on the Science bus between now and Christmas. To date we haven't had much luck with hooking up with the Foredown Tower astronomers who we were hoping might come and share their knowledge, enthusiasm and telescopes with us. If you know anyone involved please ask them to contact Mr Fulcher via the school office 01273 294880

FOMO will be running their lantern making competition again for their Fireworks Night this year, so here is the Marcus-Doughty's video with instructions on how to make a lantern again.
We launched our new Facebook page this week, and already we've seen lots of activity there. You can find the page here: www.facebook.com/mileoakprimaryschool. Updates to this page and our newsletters page will be pushed to that page too from now on.
You should have recently received a letter about updates to our policy regarding photographs and videos of children taken at the school. If you did not, please download a copy of the letter by clicking here.
We are very excited to have a ParentGym programme here at the school (not a jumping up and down one!!). This FREE programme provides a range of tools and tips for parents to help with bedtime, behaviour, communication and support with you child's learning - to name but a few.
ParentGym will run for 6 Fridays from the 13th March (excluding the Easter holidays) at 9.15am. There will be a creche available, so even if you have little ones you can take part.
Don't miss out! Register now for the taster session on Friday 6th March, by calling Andrea Diskin at the school on 01273 294880.
