The children are all busy enjoying their learning and it is exciting to see the range of exciting opportunities they have in school. We are looking forward to the next few weeks and further adventures including Year 1 trip to Swashbuckle, Year 2 trip to Manchester United, Year 3 trip to Manchester Art gallery, Sports Day and the Summer Fair.
I would like to thank all the parents who have taken the time to respond to our recent survey about After School provision. Your feedback was very helpful and we will be utilising ideas to help us further enhance the provision over the next year. We will be sending out a general parental feedback questionnaire towards the end of term to gather your views further.
Thank you for all your support and have a lovely weekend
Campfire and Story Teller
On Wednesday 28th June we will be having a visit from Eric Maddern, a professional story teller who will be telling stories around a campfire to every class. This visit has been rearranged from last term due to illness.
Mr Blackburn has arranged this special day with support from Mrs Morton and Jane Sebire. It is being funded by a grant from the Ernest Cook Foundation. We are looking forward to an amazing day.

Year 6 Residential
This week, Year 6 had an amazing time on their residential at Great Tower in the Lake District. They have been taking part in a wide range of activities including abseiling, hill walking, canoeing and rock climbing in the glorious weather.
The children were all extremely well behaved and the tidiest room competition was extremely competitive! I would like to say a huge thank you to Mr Donaldson for organising the trip and to Mrs Stewart, Miss Jackson and our teaching student Miss Lyons for making it such a fantastic trip.
We will share photographs with parents next week and hope they all slept well on their return home.
Reel to Reel
On Friday July 7th we will be having another cinema night in the school hall. We will be watching Boss Baby.
Doors open at 6pm and the film begins a 6.30pm. Bring cushions and bean bags and join your friends for a night of fun. We will be selling popcorn and crisps.
Tickets cost £4 if bought in advance and £4.50 on the door. If you can please buy in advance as it helps us to ensure we don’t run out of popcorn!
E Safety Workshop
Thank you to all of the parents who attended our recent E-Safety Workshop, we have received some very positive feedback and intend offering the workshop again in the next academic year in an evening.
I would also like to thank the staff volunteers who ran the crèche as this enabled more parents to attend.
On Wednesday 12th July it will be our annual Sports Day (our reserve date is Tuesday 18th July). All children will need to wear their PE kit all day and can arrive in school ready to go.
Sports Day will begin at 9.30am and finishes at 11.30am all of the children will have a packed lunch (either provided by Dolce or home). The children will work in mixed teams from Reception to Year 6 and move around different activities. This will then be followed by a parents’ race.
In the afternoon the children take part in more traditional activities as a class such as an egg and spoon race. Parents will be informed of the timings of these activities nearer the day and are very welcome to stay for the afternoon. We look forward to a great day and hope you can join us.
On the weekend of the 8th and 9th of July we will be spending time in Lucas’ Garden preparing it for the Summer Fair and Year 6’s Leavers Party.
If you are available to join us at any point over the weekend please contact Mrs Bridgehouse or Karen Garrity.
