The Goodlife Orphanage
Mary Maguire from 'The Goodlife Orphanage' came in this week to give the children an update on her work in Kenya. Our head boy and head girl were able to present her with a cheque for £1900 ! Thank you for your continued support in fundraising for our chosen charity. It is hugely appreciated!!
Many children are coming to school with a 'Fit-Bit' which are linked up to mobile devices. This allows some to receive text messages in class. Please ensure the texting facility is disabled during school hours and if this is not possible, that the watch is kept for evenings and weekends only.
Also- a polite reminder that hair dye and nail varnish are not permitted in line with high school. Phones are only to be left at the office if the child is walking home alone.
500 words - Radio 2 Writing Competition
This fantastic short-story writing competition for kids has returned if your child has a flair in writing and would like to enter...
Children are able to now change their school reading books as frequently as they have read them. The children may change their book independently and this will be monitored by the class teacher. Please send their book and record in daily to be checked and signed so we can ensure daily reading is also being done at home. Thank you for your continued support.
If you would like this emailing out to you, please contact Mrs Cunliffe with your email address.

Each Friday we will be holding a very special celebration assembly in school! The children may bring in any certificates and awards they would like to show and we will give certificates for 'Angel of the Week' and also our weekly house points winners will be announced!! Each half term the winning house will be allowed to come to school in their own clothes and put their feet up for an 'Afternoon Tea' treat!! Birthdays are very important this year and children may wear their own clothes for their special day! Don't panic if your child's falls in the holidays though! The first day back after a break will be celebrated instead!
Lastly, we have a brand new and very prestigious 'Headteachers Award'.
A text will be send to the families of the children selected for these awards on the Wednesday before the presentation at the Friday assembly, inviting you to join us in celebrating alongside your child, if you are available!
