Dear Parents,

The children have had a very sporty week with a squad of girls taking part last Thursday in what was billed as a soccer session but resembled water polo!! They came back very wet but very happy, a good time was had by all. On Tuesday some children enjoyed a sunny afternoon at Glossop Rugby Club learning lots of rugby skills. Across the year we try to have every child take part in a sporting event either competitive or collaborative.

As you may well have heard the very lovely Kim is finishing as the crossing patrol on North Road on Friday 12th October. At the moment it looks as if she will not be replaced. There certainly will be nobody there for the foreseeable future. Prior to Kim we went over 12 months without anyone. Hopefully now Glossopdale are all on the Hadfield site the road will be quieter.

There has been lots of lovely learning around school for example the naughty bus has been on lots of adventures, the habitat of insects has been explored, Anglo-Saxon cooking has been done, Viking pots have been made, forces have been investigated, journeys have been planned and vocabulary explored. All this and English and Maths enjoyed.

Tomorrow weather permitting we are going to have another go at scoot and skate night. This is an opportunity for the children to ride their scooters or skate in the playground for an hour after school. We ask that everyone riding wears a helmet. The forecast is for sunshine so we hope it will go ahead.

Glossop Jog is on 7th October if your child wants to take part please return the slip or let the office know. Once you have got your booklet you can start getting sponsors.

There will be no ICT club on Monday 1st October as Mr Rank is unavailable.

On Tuesday 2nd October the Y6s are visiting St Philip Howard School during the school day.

There is a meeting for the parents of the children going to Whitehall 6pm on Tuesday 2nd October.

On Friday 5th October we are holding our Harvest festival in St Luke’s Church. It will start as soon as we can get across from school so between 9.20-9.30. Please do join us for this celebration. There will be no toast on that Friday morning.
