School Newsletter – Friday 23rd March 2018

Dear Parents,

This week Rhema Theatre Productions came into school and performed “The story of Easter”,the children joined in and enjoyed the play. Afterwards, the children in years 3 and above enjoyed taking part in a drama workshop exploring what happened during Holy Week.

On Thursday when we went to St James Church Calderbrook for our Easter Service.  Father Ian led the service with Rev Ruth leading the prayers uniting our Anglian and Methodist Churches.  It was lovely to see so many parents, grandparents and community members attend the service.

A last call for any donations of Easter Eggs for our Easter Egg Bingo which will be held on Wednesday, 28th March.  The doors will open at 6.10pm and eyes down at 6.30pm. There is a 50p entrance fee and every pupil will receive a treat at the end of the evening. Bingo tickets will be on sale at £1 for 5 games.

Reminder any nominations for joining the governing board are due in next by noon, next Wednesday, 28th March.

Any children returning their homework books will receive a team star for each completed unit next week.

As you may be aware, all schools are required to have an emergency plan and review their safety procedures for emergencies that occur in schools, we hold regular drills in school with the pupils for evacuation (fire drills) and invacuation (lockdown).  The “lockdown” of a school would be taken when a threat to the pupils or staff is outside of the school, this can include smoke, chemicals, a stray dog or any other reason we feel necessary to “lock the school down”.   During a lockdown, no one will be allowed to enter or leave the building for any reason and we are highly unlikely to be able to answer the telephones to parental calls, as we will need to keep the lines clear for communication with the authorities.  We appreciate your understanding in this area.

School closes for Easter on Thursday 29th March at 3.20pm (NO after school club on this day) and re opens on Monday 16th April.

Thank you,

Mr. R. Walthall

Dear Parents,

This week the children have enjoyed two theatre groups in school. Artefact Theatreperformed a Greek play linking Maths to the ancient Gods and Story Magic performed Pinocchio.

It was lovely to see so many parents attend Parents’ Evening on Wednesday for the opportunity to catch up with their child’s teacher (and sample some of the biscuits Mrs Taylor makes in the school kitchen).  If you have not yet managed to speak to your child’s class teacher please make an appointment to do so as soon as possible before the Easter break.  We will be holding a separate parents evening for Sycamore class in the summer term when Miss Hare returns.

On Monday 19th March Maple Class will be going to Stansfield Hall nursing home to sing a selection of spring songs for the residents.

Reminder that there is a parents’ information session for the children in Year 3 and 4 about the trip to Kingswood at 3.20 pm on Tuesday 20th March.

We still have one or two places on the Kingswood trip  for Years 5 and 6 in June left.

On Thursday 22nd March we will be attending St James Church for our Annual Easter Service, parents are welcome to join us at 10am.

PLEASE send in donations of Easter Eggs to our Easter Egg Bingo which will be held on Wednesday 28th March.

Tonight we have sent home a letter about vacancies on our governing board.

Homework projects are due in on Monday 19th March
