St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Thank you to the parents that ran the film night on Friday the children all enjoyed it. I was sorry not to be able to be there.

Also thank you to the children who led our assembly this Wednesday on disability. They reminded us all to celebrate our differences and show respect to everyone. They talked about visible disabilities and hidden disabilities and encouraged us all to be understanding of others. They did a fantastic job.

After a couple of weeks looking for sightings of the ‘naughty bus’, thank you to all the people of Glossop who joined in the fun, the younger children have started celebrating Chinese New Year. Their restaurant has a very good takeaway service (there are not many jobs where you get to have wool noodles and pompom dumplings brought to your desk by a group of excited children with chopsticks!). They have been learning how it is celebrated and what it means for the people from China.

Remember there is a meeting at Hayfield Primary School on Tuesday 4th February at 6.30 to help parents understand how maths is taught now. The aim is to help you be able to feel confident to support your children at home. Parking in Hayfield is not fantastic so I would recommend car sharing.

On Friday 31st January Kites will be leading our assembly and on Friday 7th February it will be Harrier’s turn.

Also on Friday 7th February it will be the PTA disco 5-6.30.

At some point over the next week your child will be bringing home two poems to learn. This is for our annual choral speaking competition ‘House Verse Speaking’. Every year parents say to me they will never manage to learn to say all that, and I am inclined to agree but every year they surprise us all. Please help your child to learn the poems.

I have been asked to pass on this message from the PTA:

Movie night was a big success with 90 students in attendance! We had lots of parents helping out which was amazing. Setting up, getting pizzas ready, cleaning up spillage and washing up so a big thank you to everyone. The profit for the event was £191, a great way to kick off 2020!!

Here are the next PTA events this term;

PTA meeting – Thursday 30th January, 7pm at school

School Disco – Friday 7th February (5pm-6.30pm) more details will be out soon

Parents Quiz Night – Friday 13th March, more details will be out soon.

Many thanks, the PTA team.
