Dear Parents,

We are having such a fantastic science week. Thank you to everyone who has, or is going to come in and talk to us. We have found out about thermal imaging, DNA, Arctic exploration, materials, batteries, magnets, animals and loads more. Some other schools joined us for our Great Science Share and we all joined in with other’s experiments.

The Y4s played with The Halle Orchestra on Tuesday. This was an amazing experience where the children not only heard a world class orchestra but joined in with them.

Tuesday was a very busy day because not only was it scientific, and musical but the Quad Kids Squad was also in action. They won the Glossop meet so have progressed to the High Peak final on Monday. Many congratulations to all of them. The cricketers did well last Thursday and enjoyed the final they were in.

On Wednesday we had a very good presentation on drowning prevention, the children learnt a lot about keeping safe near water.

The Summer Fun Event is almost here. It is tomorrow. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible tomorrow after school. As this event is a very busy one for the PTA there will be no toast on Friday.

On Monday 25th The Harriers will be treating us all to a concert playing their brass instruments. Please join us if you can at just after 9am.

Friday 29th is both Peregrine’s Assembly and non-uniform day for bottles. For the privilege of coming in casual clothes the children are asked to bring in a bottle of anything.

On Tuesday 3rd July we are holding our annual summer concert at 7pm. The choir perform for you and any child who learns an instrument at home or at school who would like to perform is invited to do so. If your child would like to participate please let Mrs Hillier know.

On Tuesday 10th July we are holding an enterprise afternoon. The Pupil Parliament have organised this. Every House is making things to sell. I do hope you will be able to support the children in this. Any money raised will go to Tourette’s Action a charity which supports people suffering from Tourette’s and research into this condition. One of our children is being sponsored to have their hair cut in aid of this charity. Not only will this raise money for Tourette’s but will also help provide a wig for a child in need of one.

The next PTA meeting is on Thursday 28th June at 7pm, I am not sure where but will let you know when I know.
