St Luke’s Newsletter


Dear All,

I hope you have all had a good week, I know we have in school. The children have been taking advantage of the clear cold weather and have been exploring ice, there was even an ice dragon!  Some children went to New Mills Leisure Centre and met Dame Sarah Story.  They listened to her talking about her life, got to see her gold medals and learned to play boccia. We welcomed some of the schools in PEGS to St Luke’s on Wednesday, they came and did some drama with us.

Merlin’s menu was delicious last week, everyone tucked into fajitas and sweet potato chips. Today it is the turn of Eagle’s who have chosen chicken wraps or Quorn mince tacos – yum.  Next Thursday it will be the Harrier’s menu consisting of messy meatball buns or vegetable curry.

Merlin’s will be leading our assembly this Friday and Osprey’s next Friday, 16th February.  As ever we would love you to join us.

Tomorrow is Disco day 5-6.30. We look forward to seeing the children dance the night away (well the early evening anyway). Thank you to the PTA for organising this.  The pTA is always looking for more people  and new ideas please do get involved if you can.

House Verse Speaking day is almost upon us, it is Friday 16th February.  Please help the children polish up those poems.

Is anyone available next Thursday morning, 15th February, to help with swimming?  A number of the TAs are on first aid training so we need someone to help walk Ospreys back from the pool at 9.30 and two people to walk Eagles up to the pool at about 10.10 and back again after their lesson.  If you could help out we would be very grateful.

We finish for half term on Friday 16th February and return to school on Monday 26th. That first week back is going to be a special celebration of reading week as World Book Day falls on the Thursday 1st March.  This  year we are inviting the children to dress up as their favourite character from a book and bring the book in with them.  More details about the week to follow.
