Gym Competition

Well done to all the children who participated in today’s Gym competition at Dowdales.  Our Key Steps 1 team came 2nd and the Key Steps 2 and Steps 3 teams both won first place.  The children were all amazing.  They have worked so hard at both home and school to practice their routines and it really showed.  I would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Smith and Mrs Simpson who have offered their help to coach the younger children with us.  They have done a wonderful job.  We have the Furness Competition in two weeks so watch this space!

Red Nose Day – 15th March

The School Council have been planning Red Nose Day activities and have decided that we should have a ‘crazy hair’ theme this year.  For a £1 donation, the children can come to school with a crazy hair style and there will be a prize for the craziest hair style in each class.  Anything goes…as long as it is not permanent!

Mr Pegg

I am sad to inform you that it will be Mr Pegg’s last day with us next Friday.  He has loved teaching Class 1 and both the staff and children have loved him being part of our team.  Mr Pegg will be preparing for his other role (Camp Cumbria teacher) and will also be continuing day to day supply in other schools so we hope to see him again at some point.

Mrs Lawson will be returning to school on Monday next week but not yet in a teaching role as she is still recovering.  Mrs Lawson will be working primarily in the office until after Easter.  Therefore, we will be looking for another teacher to take over the class for the remaining three weeks and they will work under Mrs Lawson’s guidance with the excellent support from Mrs Dalziel and Mrs Jarvis.

Coffee Morning

The Friends of LAMPS are busy organizing the Coffee Morning to be held at The Coronation Hall.  It will take place on Thursday 21st March.  We will be in need of cake donations, any toiletries or items for the tombola and also help from any mums, dads or grandparents who can support on that day.  If you are available on the 21st, any help between 9am and 11am would be fantastic.

World Book Day – 7th March

Just a reminder that for World Book Day the children can come into school either in non-uniform or dressed as any book character.
