Tithe Barn Times 26th May 2017

Wishing Everyone a Wonderful Half Term.

Once again, another half term has flown by and it has been a privilege to watch the children blossom and grow both personally and in their learning.It’s been a busy term with lots of fantastic things happening in school, Reception are really enjoying their weekly Forest Crew Sessions, Year 1 had a great trip to the Hat Museum, Year 2 are enjoying creating 3D sculptures of famous people, Year 3 have been planning their designs for a giant tapestry, Year 4 have been working hard on challenging problem solving in maths, Year 5 have enjoyed their swimming lessons and making masks for the Brazilian carnival and Year 6 had a great trip to Decathlon and are now preparing for their end of term production and residential. All of the children have also been working hard on their gymnastics with our visiting teacher Gina who has been working alongside the staff to develop their skills.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone after the break.

Have a lovely holiday.

After School Provision

Dear Parents and Carers

The Governing Board is reviewing the out of schools provision at Tithe Barn Primary School.

We are looking at the possibility of expanding the out of school service e.g. adding a before School Breakfast Club and opening the out of school facility for in service training days.

We would value your ideas and opinions on what your children and families would like from such a provision and would like everyone to contribute by completing a small survey.

We would love to know

What is important to you and your children that currently use the facility?

What would you like to see stay, change or improve with our childcare provision?

If you can take a few minutes to fill in the questions, your input would be very much appreciated, please also email any additional thoughts not covered in the survey.


Thank you for your support

The Governing Board

Fantastic Fund Raising

On Wednesday 24th May Abby, Pippa and Sophie from Year 2 organised a stall including a tombola and a range of exciting gifts to raise funds for their chosen charity The Mustard Tree which supports homeless people. They raised an amazing £64.62.


Please can parents remember that if your child is sick or sent home because they have been sick in school they must remain absent for school for 48 hours. This is part of the protocol agreed by the LA. Thank you for your support with this matter.

Great Tithe Barn Bake Off!

Isabelle in Year 6 recently ran a cake stall at school to raise money for Christies. She baked over 200 cakes and the cakes were delicious! She raised an amazing £110! Well done, Isabelle.

E Safety Workshop

You should have recently received an invitation to an E Safety workshop that will be taking place on Friday 16th June at 3.30pm. This session will be led by the NSPCC and will provide invaluable information for parents. It should last approximately 1 hour.

We will be providing a crèche during the workshop to enable as many parents to attend as possible. Please return your slip to school if you are interested in attending.

Year 1 trip to the Hatworks

This week Year 1 had a fantastic day visiting the Hat Works. They travelled on the 197 bus to Stockport and they learnt how hats were made and made their own felt.

They also had the opportunity to try on a range of hats as can be seen in the photograph. The children were all extremely well behaved and they had a fantastic day.
