Welcome back to the final half term of the school year, we are all hoping that the sun will continue to shine throughout the coming weeks as we have lots of outdoor events and activities to enjoy including sports week 2018.
This half term we will be emailing this blog to all parents at the start of the week to make sure that everyone knows the wonderful things happening at RTS every week. You will still be able to read the blog via the school website every Sunday.
The first week back is a very busy one; on Monday we welcome Mr Sweetman from Rossett High School who will be meeting the year six leavers due to join Rossett in September.
Monday’s worship time will see us celebrate the super pupils nominated from each of our classes.
The gardening club will be planting their veg box on Monday morning with Mr Groves in preparation for judging by the Yorkshire Show Committee at some point during the week.
Good luck to all our gardeners.
On Tuesday Alan Crump from the United Reform Church will be leading our worship
On Tuesday afternoon we will be holding a special maths session for all parents of children in year 2. Year 3 and year 4. At 2pm Mrs Crisell will talk to all visiting parents in the hall about maths fluency and the way we teach multiplication before parents will have the chance to visit their child’s class and enjoy some maths activities from 2.30 to the end of the day. Please come along and see how we teach maths to your children. There will be additional events for parents of children in other age groups which will be announced later.
Wednesday sees one of the biggest trips of the year for three of our KS2 classes as Swaledale, Nidderdale and Coverdale all visit the showground for the annual Countryside Day. It is a wonderful event organised by the Yorkshire Show for children from across the region to enjoy. Look out for photos in next week’s blog.
On Friday the friends prayer group will be holding their latest meeting in the staffroom from 2.30pm; all are welcome to come along or leave a prayer in the prayer box for the group to share.
Friday will also see the school celebrate the good behaviour and good manners of children from across school who will be invited for tea and cakes at 2.45pm
Please look out for the newsletter which will be published at the start of the new half term and which will have all of the key dates for your diary.
The photos below show our Environmental Ambassadors who visited ASDA before half term to see how the supermarket recycles its waste; the middle photo is our yellow jumper winners and the final photo show the plastic prayer jellyfish which were produced as a part of the school’s prayer week. The model is made of recycled plastic and is covered with prayers for the environment written by the children.
