Welcome to our weekly newsletter!
It's been a very busy week in school and the chilly weather is certainly making us feel like we are heading towards the festive period! The great news is that we haven't had any positive COVID cases this week, so we can confidently plan for some festive fun in the last few weeks of the term (see more details below).
Thankyou for helping us over this last fortnight with the one-way system; we know it doesn't suit everyone. From Monday we will be back to 'any gate in any direction' however we would appreciate it if you could be mindful of passing parents on the narrow path at the front of the school.
Over the last fortnight we have been recording our assemblies (including the ABC assembly) for children to watch in their classrooms. From next week, we will be back to assemblies in the hall; next Friday will be an ABC Assembly (invited parents only) and the following Friday will be our Golden Certificate assembly (again, invited parents only).
Congratulations to the pupils below who have achieved 100% attendance this week!

Unfortunately, Lapwood Lambs will not be running again next week as Mrs Tonks is still really poorly. Fingers crossed the group will be back on for a session or two before the end of term.
Happy birthday to you!
We would like to say a very big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to...
Evie-May, Joseph & Evie W who have celebrated their birthday this week! We hope you've all enjoyed your special day!

Key Stage 1 Performances
Reception, Year 1 & 2 have been working very hard on their Christmas Nativity Performance. We will be holding 3 performances over 3 days to minimise the amount of parents we have in the hall at any one time and be as COVID safe as possible!
The dates & times of the performances will be:
Tuesday 7th at 10am
Wednesday 8th at 2pm
Thursday 9th at 6pm
Tickets will be limited to only 2 per family across all 3 performances. There are a limited number of seats available for each performance and tickets will be given on a first come first serve basis.
More details will follow next week, however we wanted to give you the opportunity to plan ahead if necessary.

Calling all budding photographers...
We are looking for children aged 7-10yrs who would like to enter this year's Young Photographer Competition. This year's theme is 'WILD NATURE'.
If you are interested, please email Mrs Brierley email@example.com and she can tell you more information about the competition and forward the information pack to you.
We are really keen to have some entries from Crestwood Park and following the success of Mrs Brierley's competition last year, we know we have lots of talented photographers out there.
Entries need to be in by the end of November, so get snapping!
A message from Mr Powell
This week's times-tables champion is Anna in year 6.
She earned more than twice as many coins as any-one else!
Great work Anna - keep it up!
Flu Immunisation - Survey
We have been asked to pass on a survey about your child's flu immunisations by the School Immunisation team, please find the link below.
Parent and Carer survey link for schools:
Don't worry if you have missed it!...
If your children missed the immunisation because they were off this week, don't worry as the school nurses will be back in on 6th Jan. If your child missed it because the form has been mislaid, please pick up a spare, from the office.
Looking after our School Community... Crestwood Park Christmas Lunch...a rethink!
Thankyou to those who have forwarded the names of people in the community for our Christmas Lunch. After lots of consideration, we have decided to change our plans for this year. We feel that people may be reluctant to come in at the moment and we certainly don't want to put people at risk either.
Instead, we are planning a Christmas Community Doorstep Drop to our school neighbours. Our Year 6 SPARKS ambassadors will be doing the delivering so look out for some festive treats left on doorsteps soon!

Keep warm over the weekend- we know there has been mention of snow which adds to the excitement! Please remember that if there is anything you need to know about changes because of snow, messages will come out via sch.life.
