This week we have had a series of Tour de France activities taking place
in school with baking
and making as well as
research by the older children. Nursery, in particular, had a fabulous time taking part in our mini Tour de France morning. The children raced against each other on their bikes in a knock out tournament leading to a grand final. Congratulations to Harvey Robinson our winner, Max Okezie who came second and Ezrah Wooding who was third. !
Sunday is the big day and we hope all the children will get some chance to be part of this once in a lifetime event
Monday’s Christmas Fair was really well attended with lots on offer to appeal to everyone. Thanks to the PFA for once again tirelessly organising the event and manning the stalls along with school staff. At the end of the evening the raffle was drawn and we still have some unclaimed prizes.
The Scarecrow’s Wedding Book & Sock Monkey Hamper – White Ticket Number 5 Suma Food Hamper – White Ticket Number 7 (Ravel)
Tub of Celebrations - White Ticket Number 9 (Claire Ashwood)
Cannon Hall Voucher – White Ticket Number 14 (Shelbie’s Grandma)
Please take your raffle ticket to the school office, to be exchanged for your prize.
After a week (and a day!) of concerts this week has seemed very quiet but suffice to say that we really enjoyed seeing everyone for the shows and hope you liked them too. The pictures are now on the website and can be downloaded. Our collection for Diabetes UK raised a staggering £283.31. Thank you very much for your generosity.
The Breakfast Club has been running a year now and is very successful. We started our charges at a record-breaking £1 a day but have found that this does not cover the costs of the food we need (some children like more than one breakfast it turns out!). From January, therefore, the daily price will increase to £1.50, still beating the price of all other Breakfast Clubs by a long way. We intend to hold this price for the foreseeable future.
We recently said hello to Mrs Janet Greenwood who has joined us as a teaching assistant in Key Stage 2. We hope she will be very happy as part of our team. We also welcome back Miss Nutton following her operation and have had to say farewell to Mrs Lister-French who has done a wonderful job covering Class 4. She moves on to a job at Salterlee School . All the very best to her.
West Yorkshire Police have issued a press release highlighting their guides for keeping children safe on the internet. Over the Christmas period it is expected that thousands of children will get web-enabled devices and many of these will be unfiltered and without parental controls enabled. The guides help parents set up the devices and give tips on keeping children safe online.
The guides can be accessed at www.westyorkshire.police.uk/cse/onlineguides
