Headteacher's Welcome

I would just like to say an ENORMOUS THANK YOU to our PTA for their hard work in organising the Summer Fayre last Friday. It was absolutely brilliant; the games, the food, the face painting - I was incredibly proud of the choir too who were fantastic. There was such a lovely sense of community and it was wonderful to see all of the children enjoying themselves with family and friends - it was great too to meet and welcome some of our new Reception children who will be joining us in September. 

Thanks to everyone who volunteered and also to everyone who attended and made it such a lovely event. The PTA raised an amazing £3000 - definitely a record!!!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!!!!

You may often hear that school funding is tight but for our school this is always a particular challenge. Additional funds from the PTA enable us to offer some of the 'extras' that enhance the daily experiences of our children and offer opportunities that we feel they deserve. 

We are planning to make some further developments to our playground - watch this space!!

 Choir Concert
The children will be performing in a short concert to their parents on Thursday 14th July at 5:45pm in the school hall. More details will be sent out to you closer to the time. They will be singing a collection of songs that they have been practising over the past few months. 
This is taking place on the same day as the Parents Open Afternoon - afterwards so that parents can attend both.
 

Notes from the Teachers 

Year 2 children are looking forward to sharing their amazing talents with parents at the performances next Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. You will be free to take your child home after the performance if you wish (After School Club and other clubs are running as usual). 

Year 2 Trip

Next Thursday, 7th July we are excited to be taking all of the Y2 children for a picnic lunch to Forge Dam. Please see this letter for more details.

Last Friday a team of Year 2 children went to Lydgate Junior School to take part in an Athletics event, competing against other local schools. The children were absolutely brilliant, worked as a fantastic team and we are proud to say were overall winners of the event.  Well done to all who took part - we are very proud of you!!!!

S6 Foodbank

We are really mindful that with the rising costs of so many things families are struggling now more than ever. We are still supporting the S6 foodbank - the donations box will be outside daily. 

We are still supporting the Food bank - if you are able to donate these are the items that are really in need:-

  • Tinned Vegetables
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Toilet Rolls
  • Cereal
  • Tinned Meat

They have requested that we don't send pasta or sugar. 

Thanks for you support. 

Whole School Arts Week

If you have any spare paper plates or bowls, craft feathers, coloured beads, ribbons, wool, sequins, pom poms or craft gems we would be very grateful of donations to the school office!

Community Events 

This Mum Runs

This Mum Runs is an inclusive community of women (not just Mums) on a mission to unlock the life-changing benefits of movement, exercise and running for as many women as possible. We offer free, safe, social runs in a pressure free environment led by trained volunteers. We run for friendship, headspace and connection (and the occasional piece of cake!)

If you’re not quite ready to join a run but would like to find out more about what we’re about, then why not join our free Facebook group and meet some local women who can support you to start thinking about lacing up your trainers - This Mum Runs Facebook group

And here is a link to our Sheffield Facebook group - This Mum Runs Sheffield

If you haven’t done any exercise for a while and want some help to get started, our free app, (the only running App designed by women for women), is a great place to start, and can support you to run from zero to 30 mins - This Mum Runs app

If you have any questions at all then please contact  info@thismumruns.co.uk .

We look forward to seeing you soon!
