Dear All,

Well believe it or not it is the end of term already – how could that have happened. But what a lot we have crammed into this half term, we have managed to fit six weeks into four!

Thank you to everyone who helped or supported the Easter Raffle and tea. The PTA made an amazing £1,454.89 which will be used to enhance your children’s education.

A huge well done goes out to the Kites and Harriers everyone thoroughly enjoyed their play and we are all relieved those rats have gone.

I also want to thank Esme’s parents who have given a book to all of the Kestrels to celebrate World Downs Syndrome Day this was so kind of them.

On Wednesday we celebrated Sports Relief by holding House Netball and Football and Key Stage One Sports. Despite the cold a good time was had by all. Sycamore won the Football and Beech the Netball.

Today we have been to church for the Easter Service, what a good job was done by the Merlins.

This afternoon the older children are going to enjoy a production by The English touring Opera of Shackleton’s Cat.

The children return to school on Monday 9th April. As well as the INSET day tomorrow we have one on Tuesday 8th May.

There are a number of outstanding dinner money debts. Please could everyone pay their dinner money as soon as possible.


ScienceX is a weekend-long science and engineering festival organised by the Faculty of Science and Engineering at The University of Manchester. On 14-15 April this free event returns to intu Trafford Centre for the third year running and will be packed with amazing interactive activities to excite and amaze visitors. At ScienceX, we hope to showcase what science and engineering is really all about and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers with our exciting programme of fun, hands-on activities. There is something for everyone at ScienceX – from the very young to the young at heart. Thrill seekers can have a ride in a flight simulator or try our Formula 1 racing car for size. Those who like technology can come and dance with robots or see the universe differently with a virtual reality experience. There are plenty of opportunities to get hands-on with a whole host of experiments and
to meet world-leading scientists and engineers from the University of Manchester. For the full line-up, visit the ScienceX website –

I hope you all have a lovely holiday.
