Dear All,

Congratulations to the children who went to Cyclocross yesterday, I understand one of our teams came first but more importantly they all behaved well and had a good time.

I hope all of you who have been able to come to the Eagle’s and Merlin’s production of Treasure Island enjoyed it. There was a fine display of piratical behaviour, skulduggery and creatures.  I also hope you have managed to get ‘Cheese on Toast’ out of your head.

This week we have had two important visitors in. One of the Librarians from Glossop Library came in to talk about the summer reading challenge. This is organised every year by the library and is a great way to keep your child reading over the summer without having to buy loads of books.  Just go along to the library and you can sign them up for the challenge.  Everyone who has taken part before has enjoyed it.  Don’t worry if you are not registered with the library it is a simple thing to do.

The second visitor was our violin teacher who does a great job helping children start to learn this lovely instrument. If your child is interested in starting to play the violin just let the office know.

The children in Kestrels will be leading our assembly this Friday 14th. Do join us if you can.

Next week is the last week before the summer holiday and is full of exciting learning, no we will not be winding down! On Tuesday morning the children will be working in their new classes with their new teachers.  These are staying the same: Reception Mrs Hillier, Y1 Mr Cooke, Y2 Miss Nicholls, Y3 Mrs McLaren and Mr Warburton, Y4 Ms Lee, Y5 Mrs Clayton and Mr Warburton, Y6 Miss Byron.

Wednesday 19th – weather permitting will be sports day in the morning.


Remember on Thursday 20th The choir are singing in Buxton as part of the Fringe Festival.  Please come along and support us if you can.  1-2pm near the Opera House.  Choir need packed lunch for that day.

On Friday 21st Y6 will be leading our Assembly, they will have lunch all together and will then go out for tea.

If children in Key Stage 2 would like to have fruit next term the letter needs to be returned by Monday. We have to put the order in next week and may not have spare fruit for people who ask for it in September.

If you have dinner money outstanding please settle your bill as soon as possible as we need to balance the books for this academic year.

Early warning Kim the lollypop lady will not be working in the month of September.
