Dear Parents,

I cannot believe another week has gone by! But here we are on Thursday again after another busy week.

Sports day went very well, congratulations to all the children for taking part in such a sporting way. Thank you also to all of you who were able to come for supporting all the children not just your own to make sure everyone had a good time.

We have eggs hatching in school at the moment, the first one hatched yesterday so hopefully we will soon have a little brood of chicks. They are with us as in preparation for science week next week when we will be welcoming lots of scientists into school to work with us and having an all-round good scientific time! Hot off the press we now have 5!

Ian came into assembly on Monday to offer guitar lessons to the children, he has some spaces. Yesturday Helen the violin teacher came in to do the same as she also has space from September. If your child is interested in learning a musical instrument do let us know.

Talking of all things musical on Monday the older choir members and Year 6 took part in the PEGS concert at New Mills. They performed very well and the whole concert was a treat.

Lee Baker from the police came in to talk to Eagles and Merlins about knife crime. This is part of our ongoing work to keep all the children safe throughout their lives.

Our High Peak Kids Council is meeting with Ruth George today in preparation for their visit to The Houses of Parliament next week.

Tomorrow Kites will be leading our assembly do join us if you can.

The Summer Fun Day is almost upon us, it is a week on Friday, 22nd June from 3.30. Get ready to come and have some fun.

We have finalised the classes for next year and the only change to teaching staff will be Mrs Eltringham in Year 2. We are delighted for Miss Nicholls as she is leaving us to be the Headteacher of Biggin Primary School, we are however a little sad for us. There will be no change to the staff supporting individual children.

I have been told about a girl’s football festival at Chapel High School on 4th July 6-7.30 it is open to any girl aged 5-11.

It has come to my attention that some of you super sleuths have managed to work out the code for the gate and are letting yourselves in. I must ask you please not to do this but to wait until a member of staff comes to open the gate as it is closed for our children’s safety.

Running Club is cancelled next week, 21st June, as Mr Cooke is at a meeting after school.
