A message from Jane, the lollypop lady on Woodbury Road crossing
Jane wanted to say how welcoming the parents and children have been, she also praised the older children for getting off their bikes and walking them across the road.
She asked us to give a gentle reminder for the parents of the younger children for them to come off their balance bikes, scooters etc when crossing the road and walk them across. Thank you!
She wanted to emphasise how she has enjoyed her first two weeks and how lovely and friendly everyone has been.
Year 2 Gardening/School Ground Club Update!
The first session of Year 3 Gardening/School Grounds Club took place after school on Thursday. Parents, staff and children spent half an hour working together to pull up weeds, clear stones and fill holes in the Year R outdoor area. Over time it will really make a difference. It’s not too late to join the team! Please let the office know if you and your child would be interested.
St Mark’s Heroes – Can you make the difference?
Our children need your help!
We are continuing with our St Mark’s Heroes, a volunteer scheme to gather as much support as possible to help our children. They would massively benefit from an hour, an afternoon, or whatever you can give to help them during school hours. It could involve reading with a child, supporting a small group, or generally helping in class. It’s also great experience if you’re looking to get more involved in schools.
Please apply here, and come in for friendly chat with Mrs Ford. We’ll help you to complete a free DBS check too.
Thank you for thinking about this – and for thinking of the difference you could make!
