St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a good half term. This is going to be a short newsletter as on newsletter day I will be on a train to London with the older children in parliament to visit parliament. What a great time to be visiting the Houses of Parliament just when a new government is being elected, I know they will have a greater understanding of how our country is governed following this visit.

This week is parliament week and as part of our work on citizenship we held a debate with other schools. The topic was ‘This house believes all homework should be banned’. It started as a quiet restrained affair but the children quickly got into it and a lively debate was had.

Year 6 are leading our assembly on Friday, they will be leading us in a remembrance service. Do join us if you can. Remember we do have poppies for sale in school. Ospreys are leading the assembly on Friday 15th November.

The children in Ospreys are going to Staircase House on Friday as part of their work on The Great Fire of London. I am sure they will enjoy their visit.

Bag 2 school is on Tuesday 12th of November, we have sent home a bag for you to fill with any shoes or textiles which you have finished with but any bag will do. Please do not bring them in until the 12th as we don’t have anywhere to store the bags. What you send in is weighed and school receives money. The clothes etc are sorted some items are reused and the rest are recycled.

There is a PTA meeting on Thursday 14th November 7pm at the golf club do come along if you can as you are all members of the PTA.

I have been asked to pass on this message:
“The PTA annual newsletter is attached and hopefully gives everyone an idea of what the PTA does, how the funds raised are used and the type of events held each year. Please have a read through when you get the chance.
The Christmas fair planning session is taking place this Friday at 12am in Picos, please feel to join us. After this session we will have an idea on the number of activities/stalls for the fair and will send out requests for lots of Santa helpers!! If you can help out in anyway please let the PTA team know. We will be having the book stall again and will start taking donations from next week (details in the poster attached). We are also going to try a Toy stall this year, more details to follow soon”.

Remember there is still time to register your child for the very important flu nasal spray inoculation. See attached information
