  Sports Day Next Week!

 Next week we will hold our annual Sports Day, which this year will be linked to the Tokyo Olympics. Due to the current restrictions the children will complete their sports day challenges in their own classes, competing to win 'Olympic values' stickers', Olympic medals and the overall winning class will be awarded our new Sports Trophy by Mrs Hawkins in our virtual celebration assembly!  

Unfortunately due to the current restrictions parents are not able to attend this year's sports day. 

To ensure we can keep the activities Covid secure, including cleaning equipment between groups, we will be doing the Sports Day over 2 days. Please ensure your child comes to school dressed appropriately to take part (trainers & PE kit). 

The events will be taking place on the following days:-

Wednesday 30th June: Bears, Koalas, Giraffes, Turtles

Thursday 1st July: Kangaroos, Elephants, Penguins, Lemurs

Staff Changes for September 

We are very sad to share with you that Miss Sagar-Hesketh, our Bears class teacher, will be leaving us at the end of this term. She has decided to move back to her home county of Lancashire to be closer to her family and friends. She has secured a position in a primary school as a Y1 class teacher - lucky them!!!!  Miss Sagar-Hesketh has been a brilliant member of the team bringing  her enthusiasm, energy and creativity to the team. We know she will be hugely missed by staff, children and parents alike. 

On a more cheerful note, we have appointed a fantastic new teacher for our Bears class - Mrs Louise Hunter will be joining us from Norton Free Primary School. 

New Reception children will be finding out next week which class they will be in in September...look out for a special envelope in the post!

  Milk Letter

The deadline for ordering milk for next term (Sep - Dec) is Thurs 1st July - payment is via ParentPay. Please note: the payment item will disappear after the deadline so please ensure you order before 1st July if you would like milk.  Thank you!

Challenge 230!

Josh is one of our amazing Reception children. For him and his family the last year has been incredibly challenging. You can read about Josh's story  by following this link.

We would like as many people in our school community to get involved with 'Challenge 230'.  The concept is that anyone can participate on any level they would like as long as their challenge has '230' as part of it. It could be doing something 230 times or doing something for 230 minutes or covering a distance of 230 somethings.

So can you think of a challenge 230?  It can be a family challenge, a personal challenge, challenge with a friend... anything you would like to do to support this fantastic cause. We would love it if you could you send in your pledges to us so we can share your challenges with the rest of the school community and together we can support these amazing charities. 

Please send your challenge 230 pledge to enquiries and we will share on our Newspage. You can read more via this link 

Well done!

Very proud of everyone's efforts!
