Easter Worship

We were very proud of Years 3 and 4 at St. Mary’s Church on Tuesday morning when they delivered an amazing and very moving Easter Worship for the whole school.  It was really pleasing to see so many of our families were able to join us at Church.  Thank you for your support.  Well done to all our children for their beautiful singing and wonderful acting.  Special thanks to Mr Costas-Walker, Mrs Derbyshire, Mrs James, Mrs Parker, Miss Blackburn and Mrs Teague for all their hard work preparing for the production.

Mad Hatter’s tea party and medieval day

It was wonderful to see so many parents and grandparents able to join Y1 for their Mad Hatter’s tea party this week. It was a real fun event and the culmination of a wonderful unit of work focused on the novel, Alice in Wonderland. However we were also invaded on Wednesday by mediaeval knights, ladies villains and serfs as Y4 enjoyed their medieval day. Thank you for supporting your child in providing them with costumes to celebrate special events in school.

Clothes Collection

Today you will have received a clothes collection bag along with the newsletter.  Please help us raise some money for our school fund by having a sort through your winter clothes and sending them in for collection after the Easter break on Wednesday 23rd April in the morning.  If you look on the bags there is a list of other items that can also be donated.  Many thanks in anticipation.

Penwortham Food Bank

The food bank will be collecting from us tomorrow, if you have any goods you wish to donate please send them at the start of the school day.

Dinner Money

Dinner money is due on the first Tuesday back after the Easter Holiday.  The amount to pay for the week is £8.80 or for the half term is £50.60.  Cheques should be made payable to L.C.C.  Individual letters will be sent out tomorrow with any credits or debits noted. 

Toys and play equipment

There have been a few incidents recently concerning lost toys which have caused disruption during the school day, (Marvel super hero figures in particular.) We ask that the children do not bring any type of toys or play equipment from home. The children have also been reminded to respect other people’s property.  

 

                     Friday 4th April. School closes tomorrow for the Easter Holiday at 2pm                                        

 

 

                                         Reopens on Tuesday 22nd April @ 8.45am

                               

Happy Easter!

The staff and pupils of the school wish you the many blessings of this Easter season.

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

Year one are holding a “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” next Tuesday 2nd April. Each child has invited 2 guests to join in their fun at the end of this creative unit. Come and enjoy their hospitality (don’t be late like the Mad March Hare!)

Year One class worship

Thank you to Mrs Lowe, Mrs Keightley, Miss Sellars and Miss Cookson for a lovely class worship this week on the theme of Mothering Sunday. They reminded us how very special mums (and other special ladies such as grannies, aunties, Godmothers and friends) are in our lives. Happy Mother’s day ladies!

Sport Relief tomorrow Friday 21st March

The whole school will be taking part in Wake and Shake, and a Run/Jog/Walk challenge around a course in the junior playground.  Everyone can dress in sportswear (red if possible) and bring a £1 donation.  There will also be a treadmill challenge with some children from each class taking part as well as staff.  We hope you will sponsor the treadmill challenge by guessing how far we will travel during the day and donating £1.  You can enter as many times as you wish, extra forms are available in school.   Please do come and support the children and staff on the treadmill which will be in the Entrance Hall during the day.  Thank you in anticipation.
