Dear Parents/Carers and Children,


I was very lucky this week to be able to watch Class 1 doing gymnastics in their PE lesson and was amazed at the high level of skill on show.  Mrs Smith has informed me that she still has space in her Key Stage 1 Gym club so if there are any children who would like to join but haven’t yet then please see Mrs Smith.  The club takes place on Monday after school.


Year 5/6 Sainsbury’s level 2 Athletics, Hoops

The children will be leaving school at 12pm so will need to have eaten their lunch before this.  Could I please ask that those children who are taking part bring in a packed lunch for that day.  You may also want to provide the children with an additional drink and snack whilst at the competition. 


The children will be transported to school by Mrs Smith and other parents and will return at approximately 3:30pm.


School Council

Class teachers have been busy this week holding elections for new school council members.  The children have all voted and those elected will be informed during Monday’s assembly.  They have made excellent choices!


Year 2, Bat and Ball Skills at Dowdales,

Year 2 pupils are invited to Dowdales next Friday for a Bat and Balls skills session after school.  Unfortunately parents unable to stay and watch due to space constraints.  The session runs from 3:45pm – 4:45pm.  Mrs Smith send further details next week for those who are interested.

Music for Class 3

We are very lucky to have a music teacher, Emma Richardson, from Dowdales coming into school each Tuesday for the next 6 weeks to deliver various music lessons to children in class 3.  Some of which will involve drumming!
