St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I hope you have been enjoying Walk to School Week I know a number of you have tried to leave your cars further from school or even walked the whole way.  The weather has helped.

The children have been loving our Take One Picture Week.  Their responses to the picture chosen by The National Gallery have been amazing.  I have seen 3D depictions of the picture, drama, music compositions, big art, animations, science experiments to name but a few.

The weather has been lovely this week.  Please remember to put sun cream on your child at the start of the day and send in a hat if the forecast is for a sunny day.  If you send in some sun cream in a named bottle your child can reapply their sun protection at lunchtime.

Next week on Tuesday 24th May Glossopdale staff are coming to talk to the children starting there in September.  They will also be available to talk to the parents of those children in the playground at the end of the day.

Thank you so much to everyone who has returned their sold raffle tickets.  They can go in the bucket (when I remember to bring it out with me!), given to me or handed in to the office if neither me nor the bucket are outside.  If you have run out of tickets there are spares in the office.  If you are still selling fantastic just remember they need to be in by the end of the day on Wednesday 25th May.

We are combining the pulling of the raffle with the school’s celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee next Friday 27th May.  During the day the children will be taking part in lots of Jubilee events.  Parents are invited to join the street (playground) party from 2.30pm.  On that day if the children would like to dress in red, white and blue they are very welcome to.

On Friday 27th May the children in Eagles are leading our collective worship (assembly).  Up to two people from each family are welcome to join us for this.  We ask that if possible any adults joining us wear face masks.  It starts at about 9.05 once we get all the children registered and into the hall.

We break up for half term on Friday 27th May and return on Thursday 9th June. 

Here are a couple of new dates for next half term.  We are hoping to hold our Sports Day on Tuesday 12th July at 9.15 am.  We are also planning to hold an open afternoon on Wednesday 22nd June from1.30pm when you can come in and see your children’s classroom and work, I know you have all missed the opportunity to do this. You are welcome to pop in at any point across that afternoon.  I would just ask that you are mindful of covid and not all being in the classrooms at the same time.

Simon Lodge our Brass Instrument teacher has some availability for new pupils.  If your child might be interested in learning a brass instrument see below:
