School News | Friday 7th June 2019

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone enjoyed their break.  We are all looking forward to our final half-term – which is busy as usual. Well done to our Yr 6 pupils who completed SATs in the last half-term.

In the next few weeks we are especially looking forward to our Yr 3 pupils receiving First Holy Communion – they are in our prayers.

Sports report from Mrs Stannard

Cricket – Before half-term the girls’ cricket team went to Lowerhouse Cricket Club for a cricket tournament.  They all played really well and made us proud. 

Orienteering – On Thursday before half-term, pupils from Year 6 went to Towneley Park for an Orienteering competition.  They were faced with a challenging course but worked well together and had a great time.

Phonics Screening Check

Pupils in Year 1 (Class 2) will take part in national phonics screening checks next week.  Please arrange to speak to Mrs Hoggatt (via the office) if you would like more information.

Reporting pupil absence 

If your child is unwell please ring and speak to us or leave a message.  Please tell us why they are not coming into school, telling us the nature of the illness rather than saying unwell or poorly.

Welcome back Mrs Brown!

This week we have welcomed back Mrs Brown.  We are delighted that she has returned following her maternity leave.  Please come and say hello to her, she will be in our office with Miss Manley Mondays to Wednesdays. 

Food Club

As part of our Enrichment programme, a letter has gone home to KS2 pupils inviting applications to attend our after-school healthy eating and cooking club.  Thank you to Mrs Hogg and Miss Pitman who are leading this 4 week club. 

Relationship & Sex Education

This half-term, in line with our RE Policy, children in all classes will take part in age-appropriate Relationship and Sex Education.

If you would like to see the materials or discuss this further, please contact your child’s Class Teacher via the office.

Sacramental Programme
