St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a lovely week last week. The children have certainly returned refreshed.

Congratulations to the football squad who won the league on goal difference.

The Merlins and Eagles had great session exploring how people might have felt during WW1. Thank you so much to PEGS for organising this.

There will be no ICT club for the next 2 weeks as Mr Rank is away.

We have been reviewing Film Club and the present participants in the club are finding it too long after a day at school so we are changing the finish time to 4.30.

We have lots of exciting thigs coming up, today we have the Welsh Birds of Prey Centre coming in and working with the children. Next week is Parliament Week so the older children will be holding a debate on Wednesday. On Tuesday we have been chosen by Derbyshire Catering Service to have the National School Meals Roadshow come to us. As if all this was not enough on Wednesday it is flu vaccination day. Remember this is not an injection just a nasal spray. Children in reception to Y5 who have brought their permission back will receive the spray.

The PTA have asked me to thank you for all the books in good condition you have been sending in for the used book stall. Please remember the stall is just for children’s books.

We are very pleased that Dark Peak is using our school for music on a Tuesday evening. They are running a Dalcroze session 5.30-6.30 in the hall. Dalcroze is a fun and interactive, creative and highly effective method of music education based around movement. Children develop their understanding of all the elements of music and it helps them become confident and expressive musicians. If you would be interested in finding out more about this please email or ring 01457 853137.

Merlins will be leading our assembly this Friday and Ospreys next Friday, 16th November, please join us if you can.

High Peak Kids Council have designated this as litter picking week so we will be out and about tidying up our local environment.

I hope the gymnastics squad enjoy the competition on Friday.
