I hope that you have all been able to enjoy the wonderful weather which has lasted for the duration of the bank holiday weekend. Thank you to everyone who supported the chocolate tombola donations on last Friday’s non-uniform day. Look out for further information about when the friends will hold their tombola stall. Also thank you to everyone who supported the ½ price book fair last week. We will let you know how much was raised next week. Thank you to Mrs Simpson, Mrs Warburton, Mrs Cockcroft and Mrs Sidgwick for helping to organise and run the event.
Onto this week. On Tuesday our gardening club will be meeting Mr Groves at the allotments to see what effect the weather has had on our seedlings. We welcome Claire Bassingdale to school on Tuesday morning when she will be working with children and staff in the hall. Simon Dowson will be leading our worship at 1.15pm and Ruth will be coming to school to set up prayer stations in the library which will be used by the children during the Archbishops ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer project.
After school on Wednesday I am lucky enough to be attending Stray FM’s local heroes awards 2018 at Rudding Park, wish me luck !
On Thursday our worship time will focus on Ascension Day
All of our after school clubs will have already started or will be starting this week. If you are in the playground after school please be aware of the clubs and the space that they need to set up and run, thank you.
Next week is the national week of testing for children in year six; everyone has been given information about the tests. If your child is due to sit a test and is unwell or unable to get to school for any reason please let us know as soon as possible. Good luck to everyone sitting one of the tests.
The photos below show last week’s yellow jumper winners and two of the children from Coverdale showing off the new science lab coats which have been sponsored by the Wellcome Trust in recognition of the science work done in school, note the very smart school crest on the new coats.
