Don’t forget your entries for the Poppy Bake Off on Monday 14th!
Please support our HMS Heroes and enter our The ‘Poppy Bake Off’ competition. Entires can consist of any form of cake/biscuit or muffin, as long as there is a Poppy theme running through. If you would like to enter, please complete an application form which was sent out on Friday and return to Mrs Ingram. Bring your bake off entry into the main reception on Monday 14th October for judging at 12.00pm (Please do not take your cakes into your classroom!). All cake entries will then be judged by Mr Jody Trayte and our School Governors on the afternoon of Monday 14th October. High View will then enter the top three cakes into the final of the competition (if you qualify for the final, a second entry will need to be made). The third and final stage will be judged on the 7th November 2019 in the Lord Mayor’s Parlour. Good Luck!
Don’t forget if you are a year 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 parent, we are holding informal parents’ meetings for you to talk to your child’s teacher about any worries or concerns and for you to let us know how your child is settling in this Wednesday 16th October. These meetings are not meant to replace the more formal meetings in March. Appointments have been sent via our Teachers2Parents facility booking system. Each appointment will be a maximum of 10 minutes and will run from 1.00pm until about 5.00pm.
FS children have already had their initial parents meetings.

Just in case anyone missed the newspaper on Tuesday, the Herald have been able to add a very limited amount of copies onto their online shop, orders can be placed on the link as follows – https://shop.regionalnewspapers.co.uk /first-class—the-herald-358-p.asp The newspapers are still the same cover price at 70p each plus postage & packaging. You can only order a maximum of 3 copies per order.#Hello Yellow is aimed at raising awareness and supporting children and young people’s mental health on World Mental Health Day. We would like children to come to school on 10th October 2019 wearing something yellow, whether it is yellow socks, jumper, t-Shirt, dress, trousers, hair bow, scarf or even a yellow wig. We will leave that up to you. All we ask is for a voluntary donation of £1 for “The Young Minds” charity, so they can carry on their fantastic work. During the day, we will be discussing the importance of healthy minds and providing a range of mindfulness/meditation/breathing techniques. This is part of our ongoing work on promoting positive mental health. We will also be making yellow decorations around the school. If you would like to find out more about this project, log on to: https://youngminds.org.uk Or https://youngminds.org.uk/getinvolved/

PLASTIC FREE PLEDGE – NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP!
As you know, High View have taken the pledge to become a single use plastic free school in order to support our environment. Having investigated things which we can change, we have noticed that lots of children who have a packed lunch don’t have refillable drink bottles. We would like to stop the use of single use plastic drinks i.e. fruit shoot etc., therefore we will now be providing juice, milk or water for children who do not have a reusable bottle. Please can we ask that your child only brings in a refillable bottle or has a school supplied drink from now on?
Thank you for your support.
