Settle Stories author visit
On Tuesday 7th February, as part of our Golden Thread of being lifelong readers there will be an author visit in the afternoon at St Nicholas.  Sita Brand is a published author and will be reading the whole school a story before holding workshops for KS1 and KS2.  We are so excited to have this opportunity!  Her book, The Dragon's Pearl, will be available to purchase after the workshops - more information to follow when it has been received.  The PTA have very generously said that they might be able to contribute to some of the costs for this experience, thank you very much indeed.
Asteroids Year 5 and 6
On Wednesday 8th February in the afternoon, Years 5 and 6 are attending a matinee performance of the Little Shop at Horrors.  This is held at Bedale High School and a bus will be collecting the children at lunchtime and returning at approximately 4pm.  Thank you to those parents who have given consent. The PTA has very kindly said that they will fund the cost of the bus, this is very generous and greatly appreciated. 
Toddler Forest School
This begins again with Madeleine from 1st march 2023. Please spread the word. All information can be found on ‘Outdoor Adventures Forest School’ Facebook page.
Winter outdoor clothing
Please can children all come to school in a warm and waterproof coat- we are outside in all weathers so children must be appropriately dressed.
Safeguarding, health and Wellbeing Updates 
Internet Safety
As we approach Safer Internet Day, we look forward to welcoming PCSO Heather Lees into school to talk to each class about how to stay safe online.  This is part of the curriculum for both PSHE and Computing and something we try to remind the children about regularly in this ever-changing world.  We know that many parents and carers have concerns as they try to keep up with what their children are doing online.  Following her work with the children, PCSO Heather will be available to chat to any parents or family members who would like advice and information around internet safety.  Do drop in to school between 3:00 and 3:30 on Monday 6th February if you have any questions eg how to set parental controls or block unsuitable websites.
Have a lovely weekend.
