Monday: WISH FM came into school to record ‘Little Lyrics’ with five pupils. Our Year 5 children will feature on WISH FM’s ‘Little Lyrics’ every day next week: Monday Jessica Dailey, Tuesday Jacob Ratcliffe, Wednesday Paige Dunne, Thursday Kieron Jackson and Friday Scott Honey. Tune in just after 8 am to hear them, and you could win some great prizes if you guess the lyric correctly.
Tuesday: A huge ‘Well Done’ to the Year 1 football team who played in a tournament on Tuesday afternoon. They played brilliantly!! Many thanks to the parents who turned up to show their support. I am sure you will agree they all looked fabulous in their new kit!
Many parents of Year 6 children attended a meeting to discuss arrangements for the Year 6 trip to Paris this summer.
Wednesday Five children from Year 4 took part in a Gymnastics competition. They performed their routines fantastically well. They even got to meet Beth Tweddle (Olympic medalist) who spent time having photos with the children and signing autographs.
Thursday: The choir went to the Phones4U arena in Manchester to take part in the Young Voices Concert. They had a fabulous afternoon and evening. This was a brilliant opportunity for our choir to perform as part of a 7000 strong choir and it was an amazing opportunity for them. A big thank you to all the families who came to see the performance and to cheer the children on, it was great to have you all there.
Year 1 and Year 2 enjoyed a trip to Knowsley Safari Park. The children had a great day and their behavior was excellent. This visit will have inspired them for the rest of their project work this term.
Friday: World Book Day: We held a non uniform day for World Book Day. The children came to school dressed as a book character or in pyjamas ready for a bedtime story!

Friday This is Comic Relief Day! We are having a ‘Make Your Face Funny For Money’ non-uniform day with a suggested donation of 50p to go to Comic Relief. Children are invited to come to school in their own clothes and to give themselves a funny face. (red noses, face paint, wigs, hats, false glasses, false moustaches just about anything!). All money raised this year is being doubled by the Government so please help us raise as much as possible.
10 Year 6 children will go to Sutton High School to take part in a Tri-Golf Tournament with Mrs Hawkins.
Assessment Week Next week is assessment week for all the children so please make sure they are in school every day if possible so they do not miss any important assessment tasks or tests. Parents’ evenings are scheduled for Monday 23 – Wednesday 25th March. Letter will be sent out on Monday to request appointment times.
Window Replacement Programme: The new windows are still being installed. Please take extra care on the playground and pathways with the fencing, vans and workmen when you collect children at the end of the day. Thanks.
CCTV During the half term holiday we upgraded our CCTV system. The system is designed for the purpose of safety and crime prevention. All entry/ exit gates to school are now included on the system as well as the internal reception areas of school and The Thompson Centre.
