Tag Rugby Stars

Our Tag Rugby team played well at the Primary schools Tag Rugby tournament finals yesterday. On Monday they played in the semi-finals getting through to the finals yesterday. Although the team were unsuccessful overall they played brilliantly and were very supportive of each other. Their excellent team spirit and general good manners throughout the tournament earned the team a special mention at the end. Well done team we are exceptionally proud of you all!

Super Hero Day

Today children can come to school dressed as a superhero. The day is in aid of raising funds for Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice. Dress up and donate whatever you wish. Donations can be handed in to the school office.

60s Flower Power

Children and staff in Years 5 and 6 were celebrating 60s flower power today. Dressed as hippies they went along for their 60s bash held at the Friends Meeting House in Ship Street. They sold handmade goods influenced by the dress and design of the 60s. The event is open until 4.00 pm so do pop along if you have time.

Bike It Breakfast

Today children enjoyed a free Bike It breakfast. To get their free breakfast children were asked to cycle to school today.

Walk to School Week

Next week is Middle Street Walk to School week. Please make every effort to avoid jumping in the car and maybe jump on your bike and cycle to school or walk or catch the bus and walk from the bus stop. Those who travel in an environmentally friendly way to school will be rewarded with stickers. Teachers will be using a whole class walking log to record how children and adults travel to school.

Clothes and Shoes for School

Finally the summer months are upon us, I think. So here’s a reminder to all about children’s summer clothing and footwear. Girls and boys should wear tops which keep their shoulders covered to avoid sunburn at playtimes and other outdoor activities. Hats are good idea for all to wear outside. Children should avoid wearing flip flops of any style as accidents happen when children run around. We have also had accidents where children’s feet slip and get caught under doors. Children can bring suntan lotion in but it is their responsibility to put it on. Lotion should be kept in their drawers or can be handed into the office in a named container.

Violin News

Year 2 children have received letters this week about violin lessons beginning in the autumn term. Parents and carers can contact the Music Service for more information.
