Dear Parents,

On Friday we had a fantastic big write day with all the children exploring what had happened when the storybook characters had escaped from the books. The quality of work produced was fantastic.

Yesterday our netball squad enjoyed taking part in the High 5 Netball tournament. They did us proud showing great sportsmanship.

Today the children in Ospreys, Kites and Harriers are each enjoying a session with a coach from Glossop Tennis Club. If your child is interested in trying out tennis the club offer lessons so do go on their website to find out more.

Tomorrow Friday 13th March the Eagles class will be leading our assembly so do come along and join us if you can. The week after on Friday 20th it will be Osprey’s turn.

The PTA quiz for tomorrow night is now cancelled because of lack of people signing up for it. I am sorry this has had to be done.

Next Tuesday forest schools club restarts. I know the children have been looking forward to the evenings to be light enough for this to begin.

It is almost here! On Monday 16th March the children in Merlins will be performing on the stage at Buxton Opera House. Their dance is well worth seeing so I am sure they will give a wonderful performance. They need to bring to school a packed tea as we will be going there at the end of the school day.

On Tuesday 17th at 6pm there is a meeting for the parents of the children in Eagles who are going to Whitby.

On Wednesday 18th March at 2.30 there is a PTA meeting in school. It has been put at this time to help people who cannot make it to evening meetings get involved. Do come along if you can.

Raffle tickets for our big Easter Raffle will be coming home this week so keep a look out for them.

The advice to schools as of this morning around Coronavirus has not changed. I receive a daily update and we are following all the advice given. The children are regularly reminded to wash their hands and we have learnt what a good hand wash looks like as opposed to a quick dibble under the tap! Please can you remind them as well. I will continue to keep you informed.
