Fair trade- Year 3

Well done to the children in Year 3 for delivering their message about the good work of Fairtrade in Monday’s collective worship. We have learned a great deal through our Christianity topic about how Christians can look after the wider world, and the children understand the importance of how informing others about the benefits of buying Fairtrade goods can make a real difference to someone else’s life. They have had a fantastic afternoon spreading this message further with their families as well as raising money through donations given towards the cakes they have made this week. We are very proud of you all.

Themed School Dinner 

There will be a Bonfire Night themed menu for school lunch on Monday 5th November.  You can order in the usual way either by pre-order at home or in school on the morning of the 5th November.  If your child usually has a packed lunch but would like to join in with a school lunch on this day – they can select in school.  Please can we ask that your Live Kitchen account is in credit. Thank you

Year 3/4 Football

On Monday evening some of our Year 3/4 boys took part in a cluster football tournament at Holmes Chapel Primary School. All the boys played brilliantly and gave their all, working together as a team. The team won a game, lost a game and drew a game in the three matches they played. We finished joint second in their mini league, ending up with four points. Well done everyone. The next cluster tournament is Boccia.

Year 4 Remembrance Service- reminder

On Sunday 11th November, at 6:45pm, there will be a remembrance event being held at our Church St Oswald’s. Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War 1. The children of the school will be creating a Remembrance Day display board, which will be exhibited at the event.

The children of Year 4 have also been invited to perform a song at the event, ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’. They will practising this in school in preparation.  Please let Mr. Bradley know if your child can attend.


Spooky Disco 

Thank you for supporting the Spooky Discos on Monday. The children had a wonderful time and looked fantastic all dressed up. A huge thank you to all who supported the event, to everyone who decorated the hall, to Saran Forshaw for all the amazing decorations, to everyone who helped at the discos or baked crispie cakes. And finally, a huge thank you to Debbie Rutter for organising the discos.

Christmas Fair

It’s that time of year again and we are busy planning another amazing Christmas Fair! This year’s Christmas Fair is on Friday 30 November from 5.30pm – 7.30pm.  

As with other years the children will have two non-uniform days prior to the Christmas Fair.  

Friday 23 November – non-uniform day (Unwanted Gifts)

The unwanted gift room at the Christmas Fair is where children can purchase gifts for parents (or grandparents or siblings) and will receive assistance to wrap the presents on the night so they are a surprise for Christmas Day.  Donations for the Unwanted Gift Stall should be passed to the class teachers on 23 November and can be small toys, toiletries, books or novelty gifts (no consumables please). The donations should all be new/ unused gifts. 

Friday 30 November – non-uniform day (Tombola)

The children bring in Tombola prizes which should again be passed to the class teacher and should be either a bottle of booze or a box of chocolates.

Last year’s raffle prizes were amazing, and we were so grateful to everyone who donated the wonderful prizes. We’d love to do the same again so if anyone is able to donate a prize or knows a local business who is willing to donate a prize then please let Kristin Williamson or another member of the FLPS committee know. 

I hope you have a lovely half term. I am looking forward to spending time with my granddaughter and my very elderly mother. It also transpires my middle daughter has acquired a new horse, so I am looking forward to meeting the new mare.
