St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe but March is over!  Where did it go? But at least that means we have survived the clocks changing and the weather should start to get better.

Next week, on Wednesday, the Eagles are off to Whitby to do their learning outside. The cricket club have very kindly agreed to the coach parking outside their carpark and to any parents parking in their carpark.  This should help the congestion at the start of the day as the coach is leaving at 8.45.  If your child is not going to Whitby and you can walk please will you, just to help even further.  On Friday the coach is due back at around 4pm so it can drop off at school.

There is no swimming next week it restarts on Thursday 28th April.

If your child is in Key Stage Two you should have had a letter about fruit.  If you would like your child to have fruit next term please return the letter as soon as possible.

On Thursday 7th April we are holding our Easter Service at 2pm.  As the number of cases of covid are rising nationally we are only going to invite the parents of Year Six to join us in church.  Year Six are leading the service which is why we are inviting their parents.  I am very sorry not to be able to invite you all, hopefully next year.

Thank you to the PTA and to everyone who supported the Scoot and Skate event, you all raised an amazing amount of £358.00 which is being donated to the appeal for Ukraine.

We finish for Easter on Friday 8th April and return to school on Monday 25th April.

I have been contacted by the makers of Bake Off who say: I am writing from a television production company called Love Productions, we are the makers of The Great British Bake Off and Junior Bake Off. We are making a brand-new programme for Channel 4 and are looking to find children to take part in a once in a lifetime wild camping adventure this summer. We are looking for children ages 9-11 from all areas of the country, from a range of backgrounds, abilities and ethnicities.

We are contacting schools across the country to invite the parents of children in years 4, 5 and 6 to put their family forward to take part in this adventure. The experience takes place this summer holiday in rural location in Britain.

The programme will explore what children are capable of in an outside, wild environment.

I am attaching their flyer.

Stay happy and healthy
