Weekly Newsletter – Friday 14th June 2019
Posted by: Office Team on June 14, 2019 at 3:15 pm
It was lovely to receive so many positive comments, emails and messages via class dojo, in relation to the current palm oil project. Mary Savage (Year 1 parent) has given me permission to share her message with you all………
‘Hayden has informed me today that we can’t buy things with palm oil in because the men will keep chopping down the trees and are not planting new ones! He also said he wrote a letter to say don’t buy palm oil to help Rosie (the monkey). He rarely tells me about anything he has done at school, but this topic has obviously really grabbed him. It’s lovely to hear! Thank you’
Peover’s Promise – Palm Oil Project
Our project to help in the fight against deforestation and support sustainable palm oil is well underway in school. The children have been producing some wonderful work highlighting the need for change to protect endangered animals in Indonesia. It’s been fantastic to hear so much positive feedback from parents on how children have been sharing their learning about this issue at home and even when out at local restaurants or supermarkets. You can find a full list of sustainable palm oil products and brands on the Chester Zoo website by following the link below:
An important reminder that all the children’s work on the palm oil project will culminate in a whole school exhibition in the school hall on Friday 28th June.
The exhibition will run from 2pm -4pm and all parents are invited to attend, along with extended family members or friends of the community. We also have some special guests attending including the Knutsford Mayor and Chester Zoo Rangers. We look forward to seeing you all!
Hoodwinked Production- Plumley Village Hall
This modern Robin Hood musical is great fun to perform and will be enjoyed by children and parents alike. Robin Hood is back in town, along with Maid Marian, the Sheriff of Nottingham, Friar Tuck and Richard the Lionheart. Will he succeed in his plight to free the nation from the tyranny of the wicked Sheriff? Will King Richard return from the Crusades in time? And, will Maid Marian get her man? A swashbuckling modern adaptation of the traditional Robin Hood story, Hoodwinked will have your audience ‘booing’, ‘hissing’ and ‘cheering’ with gusto.
Tickets for this production are now available on Parentpay. As in previous years we encourage children to attend the production, with a family member at either showing. Children will be allowed out of school for the 1.30pm treat. Children can be collected from school at 1pm and taken to Plumley. The show is suitable for the whole school. Please join us for one of the highlights of the year.
Congratulations to the following children who have all just received their latest dance awards. Well done! India, Hannah, Lyla, Naomi, Sophie, Charlotte, Lily and Evie.
Thank you to everyone who has volunteered for the Fair so far. This year’s fair will not have any fairground rides or inflatables. The main entertainment for the children will be the vintage games. Without volunteers to run these games we will have to abandon some or all of these games on the day which will affect both the atmosphere and the financial success of the event. If you haven’t already, please visit the sign-up sheet and put your name down for the slot on one of the games (www.volunteersignup.org/BJFEJ). The slots are only for an hour and not for the duration of the Fair which gives any volunteers the chance to enjoy the remainder of the event with their children. We will also be closing all stalls/ games during the procession and the class dances so that no one misses seeing their children dance. The success of all FLPS events really depends on the support of the parents. Thank you in advance.
The pitches for Campfest are selling fast. To be in with a chance of winning a free pizza and bottle of Prosecco on the Friday evening, please ensure that you book your pitch by end of June. The motor home/camper van pitches are limited and have almost sold out so if you’d like one and haven’t booked please book them as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. All tickets/ pitches can be booked on parentpay.
Kids club will not be available AFTER SCHOOL on Friday 12th July, due to CampFest.
