Welcome back!

Welcome back after the February half term holiday! We hope you had a great break – despite the horrible weather!!
This week – today – the winning house will have a disco this afternoon! These were the scores – in 4th place – Maple with 494 points; 3rd – Willow with 523 points; 2nd – Rowan with 538 points and the winning team – Oak with 549 points! This week is World Book Week – today we will be watching the live stream at 11.30. Wednesday – there will be a whole school book swap and, on Friday – come in dressed up as a character!!
We are getting ready for Easter – there will be an Easter Egg Raffle at the end of this half term. As from today – you can start to make your Easter bonnet and send this into school by Monday 28th March! The Easter Bunny will also be visiting school!
Thank you for sending in any pictures of your child having an ‘Extreme Read’ experience – we will be looking at these, this week and there will be prize(s).
We will also be working with St Cross Church – this half term and next – contributing and attending the Art Exhibition and then taking part in some Easter activities!
A couple of parents sent me a link for free tickets to Chester Zoo – we have been given 450 tickets – this means we can take every child to Chester Zoo in December!! More information will follow later on this year.
Our Prefects are looking out for excellent examples of healthy packed lunches – they have talked to classes about this – excellent examples will win a free Asda voucher!
COVID is still with us. We continue to take precautions in school. We are not asking you to test your children regularly – but if they become symptomatic then you will need to order a PCR test. If they then test negative on Day 5 and Day 6 they can return to school on Day 6!
Remember – Attendance and Punctuality remains a key priority for us, as a school. If your child isn’t a 100% for this year – then they can be for this half term by being in school every day and, on time!
Thank you for your continued support with all we do in school!

We have a new dinner menu – this will be on our website before we come back to school – so have a look at it and discuss with your child.EXTREME READ – we thought it would be a good idea to get your child (or yourself) reading somewhere ‘extreme’ (not anywhere dangerous!!) and send in photos via Class Dojo to your child’s Class Teacher! We will be selecting winners and they will receive a prize!When we come back it is World Book Week – on Monday all children will be watching a live stream for World Book Day. On Thursday there will be a book swap and on Friday children can dress up as a favourite character and on that day work will be done around a book!On the Monday afternoon – the winning house (who have earned the most points) will have a disco!! We will announce the winning house on the Monday!!Our theme for the first week back is ‘Passion – I have a passion for learning’.Many of you might remember that before Christmas all classes in school went to St Cross Church and took part in Christmas activities. Alison Wain, the minister there was very impressed with the behaviour and attitudes of the children and also was very complimentary about our school ethos and how inclusive, welcoming and positive it is. She came into school yesterday – we will be taking part in Easter activities and competitions when we come back after half term. We will also be making contributions to the Art Exhibition (and our children will be going over to see the exhibition – done by Elderly Aid).The Art Exhibition is open to all families (there is a cafe there also) Thursday 7th April and Saturday 9th April – 1-4pm – she will be sending a poster over, which we will share with you! We are really proud with our link to St Cross Church and the children (and families) will benefit from this partnership.Have a great half term and see you all on Monday 28th (take care in the storms and stay safe).

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s everyone!! On Friday Rainbow Class and some Year 1 children are taking part in the Panathon at Middleton Leisure Centre! The football tournament this pm has had to be cancelled due to the weather! We finish on Friday, 18th and return to school on Monday 28th! Clubs will resume on Monday 28th and Thank You Assemblies will take place in our school halls again. We will still be asking parents/carers to drop their children off at the school gates in the morning and collect from class in the afternoon – wearing a mask will be optional. We hope, as the year progresses, we will have events/activities that parents/carers will be able to attend at school – so watch this space!
