Weekly Newsletter – Friday 3rd May 2019
Thank you to those children who have brought the filled smartie tubes back to school. If you still have one at home, please could you send it into school next week. Thank you for your support with this.
Reminder- Bikeability- Year 5
We are looking forward to the Year 5 children enjoying their ‘bikeability’ training next week. A polite reminder to remember your bicycles and helmets.
Church Flower Festival- competition – thank you to those parents who have already replied.
The children of Lower Peover have been invited to join in a competition to fill a wellie or fill a pot, or any suitable container with flowers to line the church footpath. Please could your entries be in school by Wednesday 3rd July. There will be a prize for one child in each class. We are looking forward to receiving your wonderful creations.
Please could you email email@example.com if you would like to enter the competition, so we have a record of how many wellies/pots etc to expect. Thank you!
External Music Lessons
External music lessons have been postponed for SATS week (13th May – 17th May) as all school bases are needed to implement SATS.
From September 2019, we ask that children only have lessons on one instrument, in school, as more than one lesson has an effect on curriculum coverage and progress. Thank you.
Knutsford Lions Poetry Competition
On Tuesday evening it was the presentation for the winning poems entered for the Knutsford poetry competition. Over 500 poems were submitted by eight local primary schools. The judges consisted of the Knutsford mayor, a poet and a local author. We are so pleased to announce the Lucy Burgoyne in Year 2 won the KS1 category. Lucy received a gift voucher and a certificate, presented by the judges. She then read out her winning poem beautifully to the audience. Well done Lucy!
Congratulations to Lily Jukes in Year 4 and Cara Chaplin in Year 3, whose poems were chosen to be read out and were commended by the judges. The girls received books and certificates for their poetry. There were some incredible poems read on the night which truly showed the literary talent of children in our local area.
Thank you to the 25 children that submitted poems for the competition back in October, and we will look forward to participating again next year where I hope we can submit many more to show off our brilliant writers at Lower Peover, and perhaps win the overall winning school prize…
Here are the three winning poems from the children, including Lucy’s 1st place poem:
The Poppies of War (Haiku) by Cara Chaplin
Wild, red poppies sway,
Like a ballerina’s skirt
Reminder of war.
Weather Senses by Lucy Burgoyne
Look at the sunrise
Look at the sun shining in the sky
Look at the darkness
Look at the stars sparkling up high
Feel the air
Feel the breeze blowing on my face
Feel the rain
Feel the rain dropping out of space
Hear the thunder
Hear the crashing and banging sound
Hear the wind
Hear the swishing wind blowing leaves all around
Smell the rain
Smell the water falling on a summers day
Smell the sun
Smell the sun burning down on the hay
Taste the ice cream
Taste the cold ice cream while paddling in the shimmering sea
Taste the mince pie
Taste the warm mince pie and rub your hands with glee
Seasonal Mix Up by Lily Jukes
Winter, Autumn, Summer, Spring,
I don’t know which order they’re in.
Summer, Spring, Winter, Autumn,
Why is it that I can’t sort them?
Spring is the time when the flowers
When the birds start singing
And the snow keeps drifting.
Spring is the time when the breeze gets freezing,
And the leaves start flowering.
Autumn is the season when the trees are bare,
When the children start playing,
When the cars need scraping.
Autumn is the season when flowers start blooming,
When it’s cold as a freezer,
And you wear sunglasses.
Summer is the time when you need a coat,
When Christmas comes and the dark clouds float.
Summer is the time when it rains all day,
When the bears hibernate,
When snowmen you make.
Why did I not see it all before?
The seasons altogether spell SAWS!
Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring,
This is how the seasons swing!
