Foundation Stage 2 Homework

Retirement
After more than 20 years of dedicated service to our school as both a dinner lady and teaching assistant, Mrs Davis will be retiring on Friday 27th November. We would like to express our gratitude for all Mrs Davis has done for the children, families and staff here at Bramley Sunnyside Infant School. I know you will want to join me in wishing Mrs Davis a long, healthy and happy retirement.
Safeguarding
We are always pleased when parents/carers volunteer to help in school to bake, read or help out in the classroom and thank you for the time that you give. All volunteers should sign the visitor book and wear a visitor badge so that in the unlikely event of an emergency we have a record that you are on the premises. Also, children and staff know that anyone wearing a visitor badge has authorisation to be in school.
Matball Festival
Some of the Year 2 children represented our school at the Cluster Group Matball Festival which was held at Bramley Grange School on Monday. The children tried really hard and we are pleased to inform you that we achieved 3rd place.
Morrisons
Morrison’s have launched a prize draw in support of The Sue Ryder charity which provides incredible hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis. The draw will be made on Saturday 12th December when the lucky winner will receive a £200 voucher to spend in store. Tickets can be purchased at the Bramley store for £2.00 each.
