Headteacher Friday Update 10th January 2020

Date: 10th Jan 2020 @ 9:01am

Happy New Year to you all!  I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to new ventures in 2020.  

The children have returned with tales of their Christmas break and festivities.  Class 3 have enjoyed reading their pen pals letters which arrived this week from Madrid, in response to those sent prior to Christmas.  We have learnt more about Christmas in a Catholic School and similarities and differences between our celebrations.

We've also started preparations for the Big Sing.  This year it has been moved to February, so we have about 6 weeks to ensure that everything is prepared.  More details regarding dates and tickets to follow.  It will involve all of Years 3 - 6.

Next week we start dance lessons, as part of the PE curriculum, right through school with Miss Jayne from Rigney Bank Ballet School in Milnthorpe.  A number of pupils, past and present have trained with her.  She will be doing forms of dance linking with subjects being studied in class.  An exciting opportunity for our pupils to train with a well-qualified and highly respected local dance teacher, another authentic link with our Artsmark journey.

Wishing you a lovely weekend, 


Mrs Battersby
