St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

It has been another busy week at St. Luke’s. The Year 4s thoroughly enjoyed their sleep over. Their excitement was evident in everything they did from playing games to cooking, making picture frames to singing round a campfire. We did wonder if they would calm down enough to sleep, but they did in the end. They woke up with just as much excitement as they had shown the evening before.

A RSC production of Romeo and Juliet was enjoyed by the Merlins and Eagles on Wednesday. Eagles have been having a busy week as they will be enjoying a dance workshop at Glossopdale today.

The Peregrines and Ospreys have started preparing the Christmas Play, they were wonderfully dramatic during the first rehearsal I think you will be in for a real treat. The performances will be on the afternoon of Tuesday 11th December 2pm and early evening on 12th December 6pm. A letter about tickets will be sent out soon.

Tomorrow Harriers will be leading our Assembly and Kites will be leading it on Friday 30th November.

Next week is a week full of trips. On Monday the older children on our Pupil Parliament will be visiting Westminster to find out more about how our democratic system works. I am sure it will be a great day. On Wednesday Harriers will be visiting Chester and on Thursday Merlins and Eagles will be visiting Miss Nicholls new school and doing some work with children from a secondary school around different faiths. (letters will be coming out today I hope).

Thursday is our next Bag 2 School day. We ask you to bring in any old textiles, these are reused and if they cannot be reused they are recycled. It also raises money for school. You should have a bag sent home to put your textiles in but any bag will do.

Friday 30th is non uniform day for the PTA Christmas Fair. The children in Kestrels, Peregrines and Ospreys are asked to bring in donations for the chocolate tombola and the older children are asked to bring in donations for the wrap stall. On this stall children (or adults) can buy presents for their family and have them wrapped up ready for Christmas. In other words send in something you would like, or at least not be unhappy, to receive!

On Friday 21st December it is our School Christmas Dinner. This is a wonderful event at which the children and staff sit down together and enjoy a delicious dinner. If your child usually has packed lunch and would like to have a dinner on that day please let the office know. The cost of a dinner is £2.10. It is most unusual for a child not to have dinner on this day.

Remember ICT Club is back on Monday 26th but Creative Club is not on.

This newsletter felt like a lot of dates and not much news I am sorry but there is a lot coming up you needed to know about.
