January Notices

Happy New Year to you all!  Below are some notices relating to the start of the term.  We will continue to use this site and the playground notice boards to share information; I would urge you all to use these to stay up to date.  We will also continue to use paper letters and texts as appropriate.


Parents’ Evening             

This term’s parents’ evenings will take place on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th February.  Your child will bring a letter home to arrange the appointment.


Open Numeracy Lessons

You, or other family members, are invited to work alongside your child in a ‘normal’ numeracy lesson.  Please limit participants to a maximum of two adults per child and do not bring younger siblings.

Year 3                    Monday 21st January                     09:05 – 09:45

Year 5                    Tuesday 22nd January                   09:05 – 09:45

Year 4                    Wednesday 23rd January             09:05 – 09:45

Year 6                    Thursday 24th January                  09:05 – 09:45

Please use the main entrance to attend your child’s open numeracy lesson.


Class Assemblies

The assemblies, which are a brief opportunity for the children to share their learning, will again take place at 2:50pm this term.  A list of the class assembly dates are shown overleaf.  I realise that, for childcare reasons, it is sometimes necessary for younger siblings to come to the assemblies. Could I ask that, to avoid disrupting the assembly, if they become unsettled they are taken into one of the wings / corridors. Please come through the main entrance if you are able to join us.

Year 5 Production

Year 5 are beginning to turn their minds toward their production – ‘Keymaster’.   There will be 3 performances for adults taking place on the afternoon and evening of Wednesday 27th February and the morning of Thursday 28th February.  As we did last year, we will be using the Eventbrite website / app to allocate tickets for the event.  More details will follow in a separate letter for Year 5 parents.


Term Dates

Just to remind you that we break for half-term on Friday 15th of February and the children return on Monday 25th February.  The last day before the Easter break is Friday 5th April.


Enrichment Opportunites

We are continuing to offer children the opportunity to attend sporting and performing arts events around the country.   We are currently arranging visits to the 2018 British Cycling Track Championships in Manchester, ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup in London on Friday 14th June and a Super League Netball match in Manchester on Saturday 27th April.  Eligible children who express an interest will bring letters home nearer the time for each event.  If you are aware of any events that you think would be suitable for us to add to the list, please get in touch.


If you have any questions about any of the above notices, please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff.
