Dear Parents,

Let me start with a correction I am so sorry but I got the start dates for next September wrong Y1-6 will start back on Wednesday 4th September the children in Reception will start on Thursday 5th September.

It was a pleasure to welcome the parents of the new Reception children on Monday and we are looking forward to their children’s visits in a few weeks. We are also hoping you will be able to take up the invitation to attend the Summer Fun Event on Friday 5th July from 3.30.

Thank you to the PTA for putting on the fashion show on Friday. It was much enjoyed by the people who attended. The PTA are very busy at the moment as they are organising the Summer Fun Event for next Friday 5th July straight after school. As every parent is a member of the PTA it would be lovely to see more of you having an input into the events, I know more help would be much appreciated for the 5th. I have been asked to put this message on the newsletter: “Preparations for the Summer Fun day are underway and the weather forecast is good! – The PTA are putting the plans together to make this a great event for the children including the very popular Inflatable Assault Course, Wet the Parent, Face painting, Tin Can Alley and many more!! This is a request for helpers, whether it’s baking cakes for the day, taking part in Wet the Parent or manning a stall/activity, any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you can help. Many thanks, Julie Shepley”

Kites are leading our assembly this Friday 28th June and Harriers will be leading it next Friday 5th July. You are very welcome to join us for our Friday assembly.

On Monday 1st July Harriers are treating us to a clarinet concert. Fresh from their triumph at The Bridgewater Hall they are preparing to wow us all. Please do join us for this just after 9am.

On Tuesday 2nd July it is our Summer Concert at 7pm. This is an opportunity for the choir to sing and anyone who is learning an instrument to perform. It is a lovely event and I hope lots of you will be able to come.

Most of the Year 6s have transition visits to their new secondary schools next week. I am sure they will all have a good time and start to feel more relaxed about the move to a new school.

It looks as if the summer might actually finally be here so can I remind you about putting sunscreen on your children before they come to school. If it needs reapplying during the day the children can bring in a named bottle that they can apply themselves. If you are going to send a bottle in please remind your child it is just for them and they should not be putting it on anyone else! A hat is also a good idea.

Please can the choir return their permission letters for the theatre and fringe concert by Wednesday 3rd as we have to sort tickets and transport. If their permission slip is not in by then we may not be able to take them.

Dear Parents,

Welcome to all our new families who have been added to the newsletter list. We are looking forward to getting to know you.

We have had a very musical week this week with the Glossop Music Festival providing workshops for the children in Y6 and Y4 then the children in Reception and Year One going on a dinosaur hunt with The Halle Orchestra. Then the Y4s got to play with The Halle in a truly inspiring concert.

The musical theme will continue with the Y4s treating us to a clarinet concert at 9am on 1st July and our summer concert being on Tuesday 2nd July at 7pm. This concert is an opportunity for the choir to perform for you and for any child who is learning an instrument to share what they have been doing. This is always a very joyful concert enjoyed by all. The choir will all be performing but if your child would like to play an instrument just let Mrs Hillier know.

This weekend Cameron Bowers is taking part in the climb I told you about before. If you want to support his efforts and have lost the just giving page it is .We all wish him well and hope he climbs high.

It has been reported to me that there has been dog excrement left on the land just outside the gate. It is important we keep the are clear of dog muck as we want our children to stay well. Please can you clear up after your dog.

Remember on Friday we are having a Maths challenge day. At the end of the school day to company running it for us will be opening a shop for you to buy any of their resources. I know that my children loved them when they were younger, in fact still do!

I hope you have all bought your tickets for the Fashion Show in school on Friday night.

Remember there is a PTA meeting at 7pm on Tuesday 25th June. I think it is at the cricket club, if I am wrong about that I will let you know.

On Friday 28th June Kites will be leading the assembly do join us if you can.

Remember the Summer Fun Day is almost here – keep Friday 5th July clear in your diary and hope for good weather.

We will be sending out new permission sheets over the next few weeks please sign and return them to us as soon as possible so we know what we do and don’t have permission for.

Dear Parents,

We have had an exciting week. The children loved the Fisherman’s Tale thank you so much to Whitfield Parish for organising this and inviting us to attend. The girl’s Kwick Cricket High Peak Final was on Thursday and the girls won!! This means they have progressed to the Derbyshire Final. Congratulations to them. The boy’s final has been cancelled for tomorrow due to a wet pitch! This will now take place on 27th June.

The cake sale was a huge success thank you for all your support with this. The children who organised it did a great job and should feel very proud of themselves.

The Y4s are attending a workshop with Glossop Music Festival today and Y6 are tomorrow. I am sure they will have a great time.

Remember tomorrow 14th June is Bag 2 School day, please bring in your old textiles. It is also non uniform day for bottles. As if that was not enough excitement for one day it is also Eagle’s Assembly.

On Tuesday 18th June all of Reception and Year 1 are going on a very exciting trip to The Bridgewater Hall to see the Halle Orchestra. This is an amazing opportunity for the children to experience world class live music and we are all very excited about it. If you have not yet sent your slip back please do so as soon as possible I would hate your child to miss out on this.

Change of date The Osprey’s Assembly is now on Thursday 20th June at 2.30. The reason we have had to change it is because we have been offered a Maths Challenge Day on the Friday.

On Friday 21st June the children will be taking part in a Maths and teambuilding challenge day run by The Happy Puzzle Company. I have worked with this company before and their games and puzzles are amazing. After school they will be running a shop for you if you would like to purchase any of their games and puzzles.

Remember the PTA Fashion Show is on Friday 21st June, tickets available from the school office or Blossom. The PTA have asked me to circulate the message below:

The summer fun day will soon be here (5th July) which is always a great event, especially as next year’s parents and children are also invited. To get things started, we need to have a meeting to discuss ideas/plans and start putting together what help we need both before and on the day. If you would like to be involved in the planning we will be meeting on Wednesday 19th June (venue and time to be confirmed but it will be after 7pm). If you can’t attend but would like to help please let me know”.

There will be no ICT club on Monday 17th June as Mr Rank is not available.

These are the classes for next academic year, as ever things do sometimes change but at the moment these are our plans:

Reception        Mrs Hillier & Mrs Bilidt

Year 1             Miss Done & Mrs White

Year 2             Mrs Eltringham, Mrs Bewley, Miss Campbell, Miss Grandige & Mrs Woolleson

Dear Parents,

Welcome back I hope you all had a good week and a bit off, I know lots of you took the opportunity of the slightly longer holiday to get away on a cheaper holiday than you can in the summer.

We came back to a lovely event where one of the children received The Bishop’s Badge and the work of the Kites and Harriers supporting Reuben’s Retreat and Mummy’s Star was recognised. It was such a pleasure to have our children recognised and rewarded by the Bishop.

Today and tomorrow all the children from Y2 upwards will be walking up to St James’ Church to do some RE work either on Thursday or Friday. This is a drama performance called The Fisherman’s Tale. We are looking forward to what is always a good session. We are very grateful to Whitfield Parish for putting on this event.

On Friday 7th there will not be a family assembly. On Friday 14th June Eagles will be leading our Assembly.

Today you should be getting a bag 2 school bag, please fill it with old textiles and shoes and bring it back to school on 14th June.

On Monday some of the Year 3 children have planned and organised a cake sale in aid of homeless charities. They have asked me to ask you to send in cakes to sell (preferably small cakes and biscuits) and also to send your child in with a donation. I am so impressed with the work the children have put into this and I hope you can support their efforts.

On Monday the choir are singing in New Mills Arts Theatre as part of the PEGS annual concert. I am sorry the letters came out so late. Please can you return the permission slips as soon as possible.

On Thursday and Friday next week the Year 4s and Y6s have been offered a music workshop by the Glossop Music Festival. We are all looking forward to these events.

On Friday 14th June it is a non-uniform day. For the privilege of coming to school in sensible casual clothes the children are asked to bring in a bottle for the PTA. The bottle can be of anything; shampoo, sauce, pop, wine – anything. Thank you for supporting school in this way.

On Friday 21st June the PTA are holding a fashion show in school. Tickets, which cost £5, will be available from the school office and Blossom.

Public Health are consulting with the public and local stakeholders on creating ‘additional smokefree public spaces’. One of the main aims of any future work in this area is to try and protect children from second hand smoke. The consultation can be found here
