St Luke’s Newsletter


Dear All,

Last Friday we were delighted to welcome Ruth George our MP and representatives from The Arts Council into school to celebrate our commitment to the arts. The children all round school spoke eloquently about how an arts rich curriculum enhances their learning.  The choir sang beautifully and the Ospreys performed their refugee dance.  The school council were very keen to find out more from Ruth about how she became an MP and what her job involved.  Everyone left very impressed by St Luke’s and our children.

On Friday 1st December the Kites will be leading our assembly at just after 9am and the week after on the 8th it will be the Kestrels leading their first one.  Please do join us if you can.

Tomorrow 1st December it will be non-uniform day for the fair.  For the privilege of coming in their own clothes we ask the children to bring in donations for the Christmas Fair (which is on Friday 8th December).  We are asking Kestrels Peregrines and Ospreys to bring in chocolate for the chocolate tombola and everyone else to bring in a gift for the wrap stall.  On the wrap stall the children can buy presents for their family and we will wrap it up for them so it can be kept secret for the big day.  In other words please send in something you might like to receive!  The fair is nearly here it is on the 8th December at 5pm.

On Monday most of the school will be walking up to St James’ church to listen to a concert put on Derbyshire music service including The Snowman. This will be a magical start to the festive period.  Please make sure your child has a coat.

If your child is in Peregrines or Ospreys remember to return the slip asking for tickets to their production as we will be allocating tickets soon.

If your child usually has packed lunches on a Friday they should have brought home a letter inviting them to join in Christmas dinner on Friday 15th December.  This is an occasion much loved by children and staff.  If your child would like a dinner on that day just let the office know.

Children in Key Stage 2 will be coming home with a letter for fruit for next term. Please return the letter with payment if you would like your child to have fruit.

After school clubs that are run by school staff will finish next week (week ending 8th December) until the New Year.
