St Luke’s Newsletter


Dear All,

The last week has been a busy and enjoyable one in school. I have seen mystery objects and marble runs, been taken on a red bus tour of a model of London, seen children responding to and interpreting great works of art and discussed whether we like them or not.  The children have explored the digestive system and the workings of Grandfather clocks. I have seen children excited about maths problems, relishing writing and gushing about Geography – maps and globes are wonderful! We have all enjoyed exercise and acting.  In other words a normal week at St Luke’s.

Friday night is film night. The PTA are putting on a film night for the children straight after school so all the children who have bought tickets for it will be taken into the hall at the end of the day to enjoy the film and some snacks.  Tickets are £3 and available from the office.

On Monday 15th Jan Y5 are going to St Philip Howard to do some PE in the morning so they need to make sure they have their PE kits into school.

On Thursday 18th Jan there is a PTA meeting at 7pm at The Cricket Club do come if you can.

Eagles are leading our Assembly just after 9am on Friday 19th January and Harriers the week after.  Do join us if you can.

I don’t know if you saw the Lego Masters series on Chanel 4 last year, I loved it the models were amazing, anyway they are looking for entrants for this year’s competition, adults or children. Applicants must be over 9 on 31st March 2018.  If you are interested email, if the applicant is under 18 a parent or guardian needs to phone.

I am attaching the dates for this term, as ever things may well change so do keep an eye on the newsletter. Talking of dates there have been a number of enquiries about May half term dates; we finish on Friday 25th May and return to school on Wednesday 6th June.
