Dear Parents & Carers,

This week I have been seeing children jigging around school!  As part of mental Health week the children have all been learning a dance.  They are amazing at it – I am less good it starts something like four taps with your left foot, four with your right four alternate a four step turn cross overs walk back and I am lost already.  You will have to get your children to show you.  We are doing it because dancing reduces anxiety and makes people happy.

Congratulations to the children who took part in the Sports Hall Athletics yesterday as ever they were a credit to the school.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the film night.  The children had a great time.  I have never seen 140 hot dogs disappear so fast.

Tomorrow Peregrines will be leading our Collective Worship.  Their assembly starts at about 9.10.  I will text out the code word in the morning. 

If you haven’t signed up for your online parent teacher meeting yet remember they are next week.

There are no school led, after school clubs next week because of parent teacher meetings.

Next week on Friday, the Pupil Parliament and High Peak Kids Council are running a break 5 rules day to raise money for Mountain Rescue and Blyth House.  The way it works is this, for each rule the children chose to break they are asked to donate at least 20p.  If they break all 5 rules that is a donation of at least £1.  The rules are:

  1. Wearing uniform – the children can wear their own clothes
  2. Only water to drink – the children can bring in unhealthy drinks
  3. Only fruit for snack – the children can bring in unhealthy snacks
  4. Tidy hair & no nail varnish – the children can have crazy hair and wear nail varnish
  5. No toys – the children can bring in a toy (remember toys in school can get damaged or lost so please don’t send in anything too precious).

Thank you to everyone who has responded to the choir letter.  We have only got 7 members of the choir able to sing at the Fairtrade Coffee Morning on Saturday 1st April so I will have to tell them we cannot perform.

We are starting to plan for World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March.  On that day we will have a book at breakfast, everyone will start the school day with toast, hot chocolate and a book (the swimmers will have theirs after swimming). We are going to have a book swop, bring a book you have finished with and choose a new one.  We are also asking the children to bring in a picture of them reading in unusual places here are some to get you thinking:

Mrs Hillier reads in the climbing tower.


          Mrs Littlehailes is reading in the paper cupboard




                                                                                                 Baby Sophie reads in her den with her Daddy.



Where will you read?  We look forward to seeing your pictures.



Stay happy and healthy
