Consultation Evening Letter - 6th Nov & 8th Nov

Jack and the Beanstalk

The Mercury panto is back, and this year it’s bigger and better than ever.

Jack and the Beanstalk promises all the laughter, sparkle and excitement you’ve come to expect from the seasonal show that just keeps breaking box office records!

When Jack Trott and his family find themselves down on their luck, Jack’s mother sends her poor son to market to sell their beloved cow ‘Daisy’, but when she learns that he’s exchanged the cow for a few measly beans, she’s furious and throws them out into the garden to rot.

Little does she know that those beans are magical, and when the family awake next morning and find a great beanstalk soaring high into the sky, their lives will never be the same again, for the land is ruled over by a terrifying Giant who lives in a castle high up in the clouds and, being an adventurous lad, Jack vows to climb the beanstalk and face their Fi, Fi, Foe.

Will Jack make his fortune? Will he make his Mum proud of him again? And will the family ever be reunited with poor Daisy? Find out when you join Jack and friends for ‘a tale as magic as beans’ in our sky-high Mercury pantomime.

Starring panto favourites Antony Stuart-Hicks, Dale Superville and Carli Norris (Nurse Nellie, Muddles and the Enchantress in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), and packed full of music and dancing, Jack and the Beanstalk promises to be a glittering Christmas treat for the whole family to enjoy!

Last year’s Mercury panto was nominated for no less than five Great British Panto Awards, including Best Pantomime, Best Script and Best Dame, so don’t miss out this year.

And the best news ... St George's School will be visiting on December 11th (Years 3 and 5) and December 18th (Years 4 and 6) for the knock down price of just £8 per child! Wowsers!!

Theme for the Week : BBC Children in Need 2018 Spotacular

Menu for the Week : Week 3 of the new menu 

Special Events for the Week :

Local Visits

To help children with their learning we may often go out of the school gate on a local visit. Your local vist permission slip enables us to do this. We will always inform families in advance if we are planning a local visit, normally via a text message (except for visits to the school field for PE etc). These visits will often be added to the website calendar. All such visits are fully risk assessed and planned prior to taking place.

BBC Children in Need is on Friday 16th November. We will invite children to 'dress spotty' and to bring donations to school. Children may simply adorn their uniform with spots (eg spotty stickers), wear a spotty item or two with their uniform, or go the whole hog and just wear spotty things for the day, leaving their uniform beautifully folded in their tidy bedrooms.

Junior Parkrun will be held on the recreation ground at 9am on Sunday. Register for free at www.parkrun.org.uk/colchester-juniors/ . Any pupil of the school who runs regularly can order a barcode bracelet and/or barcode tag from the Parkrun website and we will reinburse the cost! (Just show us the items and receipt as proof).

...Recent News... 

School Meals currently cost just £2.20 per day. Please be aware that this is likely to rise to £2.50 per day from January 2019 owing to increased charges being made to the school by our supplier (St James' School).

Swimming is taught in Year 5. Please be aware that a £2.00 financial contribution will be requested for each lesson. Also, please do not allow your child to have piercings as this may impact upon them being able to join in.

Educational Visits are organised regularly for the children in the school. We will need to request a financial contribution for each visit that is a fair proportion of the total cost involved. Vists risk being cancelled if adequate contributions are not received.

Ofsted conducted an inspection of the school on November 9th and 10th  2017 as part of their normal round of inspections. Our school was judged to be good in all aspects. The full report can be read in the information section of this website.
