Firstly a date for your diaries, Sports Day this year is on Monday 22nd June at 1.15pm, we hope to see as
many parents there as possible.
A reminder that we have the battery recycling boxes in the reception area, if you have any batteries at
home that need recycling please do bring them in.
On Monday next week there will be an assembly about Sports for Champions to inspire the children
before our exciting visit from Rebekah Wilson after half term. The children will be bringing home
sponsorship forms for the sponsored fitness event taking place on the day of Rebekah’s visit. The money
raised from the sponsorship will provide funds for the school to purchase sports equipment and also
support our Olympic Athletes as many of them train 30+ hours a week and don’t have any regular income
(or time to earn a living!) so this helps them compete for our country.
There will be no cricket next week, but the club will resume after half term, any over payments will
rollover into next half term.
All the children need a Victorian costume for the play, just a reminder that they will be wearing them
when they go to Beamish, if you have any questions please ask Mrs Gabbott or call the office.
