On Monday our Nursery held an open day which was well attended by parents of children who will join us in September.
On Wednesday and Thursday and Friday, staff took our Nursery children for a walk around the local area in small groups. Well done to Scarlett, Kaitlyn, Olivia, Lilly and Leo from Year 2 who tried extremely hard in a gymnastics competition on Wednesday. They performed their routines well.
On Thursday a team from school took part in a ‘High 5’ Netball tournament at Rainford High School. They played extremely well but unfortunately were knocked out in the semi finals.
On Friday, 8 children from Year 6 went to Ruskin Drive for a Cricket Tournament. During Friday, Eaves Primary visited our school to play against our children in a table tennis competition.
Week beginning 8 June:
Tuesday Year 2 will visit the Walker Art Gallery as part of their cultural pathway. Y4DB will be going to the Saints Smart School and some Year 6 pupils will take part in a Rounders Tournament at Bleak Hill Primary.
At 5.15 pm the Resources and Business Planning Committee of the governors will meet.
Friday Year 5 are having a Victorian Day and many of our Year 4 children will leave school to go on this year’s PGL Holiday at Boreatton Park. We hope they all have a lovely time.
Head Lice – ONCE A WEEK TAKE A PEEK
Please can I ask that all parents and carers check their children’s hair for head lice every week. Unless every parent takes this problem seriously and checks their child’s hair then head lice will continue to spread quickly between the children and understandably this is very frustrating for parents. Using conditioner and a fine comb is a good way of removing any lice (avoiding harsh chemical treatments) and we still have some specially designed kits available free in school for this purpose. Please call in and ask Miss Gregory for a kit if this will help. Please can all girls come to school with their hair tied back as this will help in preventing a spread. Please help us to minimize this problem in school.
