Dear Parents,

It was lovely to see so many of you at the Christmas Fair last Friday. Thank you to everyone who supported it by sending in contributions, coming along, organising it or running a stall. The fair is enjoyed by all the children and it raised £988 for school. We are all so grateful to you all.

Money raised by you has been used to buy lots of lovely new books for all the children to enjoy so a huge Thank You from everyone at St Luke’s.

In sporting news our Boccia squad really enjoyed the tournament they took part in last week. Congratulations to our swimming squad who came second in the gala. An especial well done to the pupil who stepped in at the last minute when another child was injured.

The Peregrines and Ospreys treated us to a fantastic production well done to all of them. Thank you to all of you for helping them learn their lines.

Kestrels will be performing on Friday when they lead our assembly. Do come and join us if you can, it will be at just after 9am.

The choir have several bookings they are singing at St Luke’s Church carol concert at 6.30 on Sunday (they need to be there for 6.20 in uniform). They are also singing as part of the carols round the tree in Norfolk Square on Thursday 20th again at 6.30. They have been invited to sing at Tescos during the day sometime next week we are just negotiating when. It is always lovely to have an audience so please do come along.

Next week is full on Christmas we have parties, the carol service and Christmas dinner!

For the parties the children can come to school in their party clothes or change into them at lunchtime. If they are coming in their finery please remember that the children will be doing normal school activities in the morning including playing out so their clothes need to enable them to take part. The parties are:

Merlins & Eagles Tuesday 18th

Harriers & Kites Wednesday 19th

Ospreys, Peregrines & Kestrels Thursday 20th

On Friday 20th we are going to start the day with our Carol Service in St Luke’s Church. The Kestrels, Choir and Readers will meet at church at just after 9am everyone else will meet at school at normal time and walk across to church. The service will start as soon as everyone is there so about 9.20. We would love to have you join us. We then will go back to school and have Christmas dinner. In the afternoon we have our traditional whole school sing, prize giving and safety talk. Then everyone will go home for Christmas.

On Sunday 9th December there are carols in Howard park 2.30-3.30, this is always a lovely event.

I don’t know if you caught the Channel 4 programme Lego Masters – it has had me hooked, creativity and engineering and Lego bricks. Well, they are looking for teams for the next series:

Following the success of current series, we are again on the hunt to find Britain’s most talented building duos. This year we had 7 incredibly talented and wonderful children on the show and it was their dream come true. With that in mind I was hoping to see whether you would mind distributing the flyer below to your staff and students or parent’s network to see if the next winner of the series is either attending or working at your school – as we are looking for creative adult teams too! Applicants must be aged 9+ by 03/02/2019. If you are interested in finding out more please email build@tuesdayschild.tv
