Weekly Newsletter – Friday 21st June 2019

  Posted by: Office Team on June 21, 2019 at 2:46 pm


Yesterday, we received a visit from Chris Penn, Director of Education for the Diocese. He went into each classroom to meet the children.  He was highly impressed with the Palm Oil Project and the children’s passion for learning. The children are very fired up about bringing about change to save the animals. I have invited Chris Penn and colleagues from the Diocese to attend our exhibition.

It is one week until our Zoo Exhibition in the school hall. All the children have been working so hard again this week to create letters, posters, artwork and learn about Sumatra and Borneo. Next week the staff will begin to put all the children’s work together to transform the hall for the exhibit. We are very much looking forward to seeing everyone there between 2pm to 4pm next Friday, 28th June.

We are still desperately in need of these items for the exhibit, which are: 

Lots of empty cans and large plastic bottles – if each family could aim to bring in one or more for Monday that would be very much appreciated!

We also require a large easel if anyone has one we could borrow, if so please contact us.

Fete – Saturday 22nd June 1pm

The rearranged fair is TOMORROW! We are looking forward to seeing as many people as possible there tomorrow. The Fair will take place between 1pm and 3.30pm. The procession for the Spring Queen and King will take place at 2pm with the class dances taking place immediately after. Please ensure that the children are in their costumes ready for 2pm.There is no entrance fee this year, but we are running a lotto. The tickets cost £5 with the winner receiving £100 and two runners up winning £50 each. Don’t forget to buy your tickets for your chance to win. Elaine will be busy making burgers and sausages which can be bought from the school hall. We will also have a bar selling Pimms, Peroni and Prosecco as well as soft drinks. Please encourage your children to take part in the vintage games. Everyone who wins a game will receive a token for their team. The team with the most tokens at the end of the day will be rewarded with a non-uniform day.

Premier Education – Sports Provider from September 2019

Early next week in school, the children will be given the survey below to choose their top 3 activities relating to After School Clubs from September. Once the children have completed, they will bring the forms home for parents to look at their choices and add any comments if necessary.  Please could these be returned to school for us to forward onto Premier Education.

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.

St Oswalds Church Fete – Saturday 6th July

Calling all parents – St Oswald’s Annual Fete is on Saturday, 6 July from 12.00 on the school field.  We could really use some help setting out the field on the Saturday morning or clearing away from 4.00ish.

So, if you could spare some time, it would be greatly appreciated. Hope you are game for the Tug O’ War too. All ages can take part.

Just turn up. Many thanks Joan Drye 07812655493

The children need to arrive at school at 12.45 to be ready to dance at 1pm. Children will be dancing the same dances as our school fete on 22nd June.  If you are unable to attend, please could you let the class teacher know. Thank you.


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.
