Monday 20th November – Friday 24th November – Road Safety
Week Tuesday 21st November – Happy Bag Collection
Enfield Food Bank:
Year One have had a very busy time since the half term break! After our successful Harvest collection, 10 children from all classes helped to deliver the food and toiletries to the North London Food Bank. They learned about how the food is sorted and how it helps families in need. Our week finished with a visit from Reverend Ian Gallagher, from St James Church, talking to the children about Harvest Festival.
Year 2 – Leopard Class:
“I really enjoy history because we are learning about the Great Fire of London, which is really interesting. I now know that what caused the incident was a baker forgetting to turn off his oven, then the bakery caught fire and it spread! People had to escape by boat.” David Winning. “I enjoy school because in our lessons we get to learn and it makes me smarter. I have learned how to write a letter in English and at the moment we are writing a letter to Mrs Hamilton who is the Mayor of Enfield! We are also looking at the Great Fire of London in History which is really interesting.” Adyssa Thomas.
What's the difference between free sugars, naturally occurring sugars and total sugars? Sugar is classed in two ways:
Free Sugars - sugar added to food and drink, either by ourselves, manufacturers or cooks, as well as sugar found naturally in honey, syrups, fruit juices and fruit juice concentrates. It is free sugars in particular that many of us need to consume less of.
Naturally Occurring Sugars - Sugar found naturally in fruits and vegetables (fresh, frozen or dried) or dairy products (milk, plain yoghurt and cheese.)
How do I know how much sugar there is in my food and drink? It's really important to understand what your're eating and drinking, where it's come from and how it affects your body. You can educate yourself about the sugar content in your food and drink by checking the information on the labels.
Things to out for:
Reception and Nursery:
We have uploaded theme webs for Reception and Nursery to the website. We have placed them in Autumn but the themes will continue over the year. http://www.carterhatchinfants.com/topic/curriculum
When your child is off please call the school office to inform us of the reason. If your child is absent due to any reason including illness you will need to provide evidence where possible. If your child’s attendance falls below 90% all medical absences will be unauthorised unless adequate medical evidence is provided. Message via - 0208 804 6886 or text 07572 135463.
We have recently updated our medical needs policy and it is available to read on line at http://www.carterhatchinfants.com/school-information-and-policies/ .
We are now able to administer prescribed medication. This must have your child’s name and the dosage and you should complete the relevant form available from the office.
Medication for more serious and on-going conditions such as preventing severe allergic reactions will be authorised once a health care plan has been completed.
If your child wants to celebrate his/her birthday with classmates they are welcome to share fruit (not grapes) with the class. Alternatively you can donate a book to the school. If you choose to donate a book you can ask for a book plate from the school office. On the book plate we will write your child’s name and when they donated the book. We ask that you do not bring in sweets or party bags as we are a ‘Healthy School’ and we work hard to promote healthy choices within school. One in four children enter primary school obese or overweight.

Please remember that children need to ensure they have a separate PE bag to keep their PE kit in rather than their book bag or plastic bag as these tear. Parents/Carers need to ensure their child has plimsolls, shorts/tracksuit bottoms, t-shirt and a sweatshirt all labelled in a PE bag in school. Children with long hair need to have it tied up and children with earrings must not wear them on PE days or the teacher will provide medical tape.
