Headteacher's Welcome

The children in Year 1 and Year 2 have been out into Fulwood this week trying out their map work skills as part of their learning in Geography. They were so sensible - well done!

This half term we have been focusing on our school value of Teamwork. We have been reading stories and talking about how we can be a good team player by helping others. We have also thought about how everyone has different talents and skills and by bringing all these skills together we can do amazing things!

Together Everyone Achieves More

Extra Curricular Clubs!

Clubs go live at 7:00pm on Tuesday 6th February. Please chat to your child about which clubs they would like to do - places will not be refunded if you change your mind.

Snacks in School

We have noticed an increasing number of children bringing  additional snacks to school. Every morning all children are given the option of a piece of fruit (or veg) at snack time. If your child prefers to bring a piece of fresh fruit instead of this, they are welcome to do so and put it in their drawer. However, we request that processed fruit bars, cereal bars, biscuits and other snacks are not sent in as we have children in school with allergies and we need to be very careful about who is being exposed to different foods. If you are not sure whether your child is allowed to bring a particular food please check with their class teacher. 


Thank You!!

PTA Update
Here is a link to a more detailed update from the PTA:
 We thought it was a good time to share a summary of who we are, what we do and why it's so important. In there you'll also find a list of all the events we have planned for this term, plus a heads up on the big summertime dates - the school disco and the summer fair!
Upcoming Events
  • Dress as You Please next Friday. £1 in book bags please and kids can wear whatever they like (so long as it's suitable for school, including playtime!)
  • Sponsored Leap on Thursday 29th February. Next week we'll be sending out details and sponsorship forms for our Leap Year event. Hopefully half term is a good time to ask friends and family if they'll support. It should be lots of fun!
Finally, thanks to all who visited our second hand uniform sale last week - we raised over £120! The payment machine was a little temperamental that day as well so that's amazing. The online link is here in case anyone is still looking to donate (same for cake sale, just adapt the reference): PTA Donations Page
