Communication

I am very pleased to say that Mrs Gallagher is back in school and our emails have transferred to the new system so communications can resume as normal.  Thank you for your patience this week.

 

Walk to School Week

Thank you so much for your participation in Walk to School Week.  It has been fantastic to see the children so proud of the few extra steps taken to get to school each morning.  We even had one child and their parent walking from Ulverston this morning! Thank you to other parents and staff who live too far away to walk but have made a particular effort to park further away from school each day.  However, I do apologise to the parents and residents who have been affected by this, hopefully not too adversely though.  It has been a very beneficial exercise in teaching the children about road safety so your support is much appreciated.

 

Sponsor Forms

The annual Fun Run sponsor forms have been sent out this week.  I fully acknowledge the fact that this is the third sponsor form that has been given out this year and do apologise for the timing of these as it has not been well planned.  I can assure you that the only sponsor form you will receive next year will be for the usual Fun Run.  Please do not feel that you have to donate.  Whilst your generosity is always appreciated, we would never want any family to ever feel pressured.

 

Outdoor Learning Day

We all had a fabulous day yesterday as we took our learning outdoors with Maths, English, RE and Computing lessons all taking place under a beautiful, blue sky.  I would like to thank Miss Whyte for organising the day and our teachers and students for planning such high quality lessons particularly as the weather can be so unpredictable.

 

We are very eager to make better use of our outdoor area and would like to improve the garden area to make it safer and a more practical space.  We do have some funding set aside and are in the process of planning possible developments.  If any of our parents have experience of landscaping, or know someone who does and would be willing to give up an hour of their time to look at the area and offer advice, then please get in touch.

 

Plant Sale

Don’t forget the annual Plant Sale tomorrow at Buccleuch Hall, 10 -12pm.  We have number of Year 5 and 6 pupils who will be helping on the day by running their own stalls so please do come for a browse.
