Dear Parents or Carers                                                                                       13 May 2016

 SATS week is always a funny week in school as it's not typical of what takes place. However, the Year 6 children really enjoyed their treat of a trip to Chester Zoo today and had a great time. Also this week Hatchmere Class loved playing football at Tarporley on the hottest day of the year so far.

 A number of parents have asked about children wearing sandals in hot weather. We would advise against this as they are open-toed and could be a health and safety risk for children's feet at break and lunchtimes.

 Please remember the following events are taking place between now and half term:

14/15 May     Stoke City Football residential trip

19/20 May     Year 5 Canoe trip

w/c 23 May    Science Week

24-27 May     Year 6 trip to Cornwall

24 May         Year 5 Fire Safety Talk

25 May         Parent and Child Science Night

26 May 9am  PIP meeting – all welcome

27 May         Y1 and 2 trip – Underwater Street

30 May – 3 June   Half Term

Dear Parents or Carers

 

The newsletter is early this week due to Easter. We are looking forward to seeing you all in school tomorrow afternoon at our Easter celebrations. Please arrive at school from 1.30pm for the judging of the Easter Egg Competition and also our Easter Egg Roll. We look forward to seeing all The Desert Island Disc Eggs.

 

Well done to our football team who are through to the National Finals of the Danone Cup; this is the largest participation school competition in the world with 32 countries taking part. They played really well at the weekend and are looking forward to the finals in May which will take place at The King Power Stadium in Leicester, home of Leicester FC and this will be a very rewarding and exciting experience for them.

This week we had our new playground markings put in and it was really lovely to see the children all mixing so well in games of ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf/’ Equally our sporting willow sculptures are looking fantastic and our Hobbit House is nearing completion. We appreciate the hobbit house has taken the same time to build as a small housing estate, but hobbits do work slowly.  The money you have raised through PIP activities has made a real difference to the school grounds and all of these developments make the school an even better place for the children to learn.

 

On the sporting front our footballers are now through to the Chester Schools’ Cup Final after a great semi-final performance and a 3-0 win against Dee Point. They are also representing all Cheshire schools  in the Northern Cup Final this weekend in Newcastle which is a brilliant achievement and I am sure you will wish them all good luck. Also well done to our Key Stage 1 runners who competed so well at Tarporley High yesterday. Sport is very high profile at school and today all enjoyed taking part in a House Handball Tournament as their contribution to Sports Relief.

 

Today is the final day of all after school activities except the Year 6 Homework Club and these will resume after the Spring Break. WAC club will run as normal.

Dear Parents and Carers                                                                                     11 March 2016

 

The infant trip to Stockley Farm was a highlight of this week and thank you for all the positive comments about the day. Educational visits form a major part of our school life and your support in making these a success is always appreciated. On the sporting front we have played dominoes, water polo and football in tournaments this week and our Year One children had the pleasure of playing at the Liverpool Football Academy which is a wonderful experience.

 

Our second Parents’ Evening was well attended. If for whatever reason you didn’t manage to book an appointment, please feel free to contact your child’s class teacher to do so. We also raised £182 selling tea, coffee and cakes over the two evenings, thanks to volunteers from PIP.

 

Yesterday we had Hatchmere’s Sharing Assembly at St Peter’s and this brings to an end the sharing assemblies for this term. We hope you have enjoyed them and thank you for your donations to the refurbishment of the church clock.

 

Next week we have the following events taking place. Throughout the week we have Caroline Gregson, a willow artist, in school working on four sculptures for our school field as part of the grounds development work. If any parents have an hour or so to spare at any time throughout the week please feel free to pop into school and work on the sculptures.

 

Next Friday is Sport Relief Day and the children will be taking part in an inter-house Dodgeball Competition. The children are allowed to wear sportswear or school PE kit to school, with a T-shirt in their house colours, in return for a £1 donation to Sports Relief and also if they can all bring in an Easter Egg for Easter Bingo we would be grateful. The colours are red for Foxes, yellow for Owls, green for Hedgehogs, and blue for Squirrels.  If you do not have a coloured T-shirt do not worry as we have coloured sports bibs in school. Also on Wednesday our football team are in the semi-finals of the Chester Schools Cup against Dee Point. Kick-off is at 3.30pm at Delamere and you are all welcome to support the team.

Dear Parents or Carers                                                                       

 

It is always a pleasure to invest a massive amount of money in new ICT equipment and infrastructure and this week we have replaced all our old Mac’s with new ones, purchased a set of MacBooks to increase ICT provision; all on a scheme with Apple where we will see all hardware replaced every two years. The aim is that all children and teachers develop their skills even further and the use of ICT is integral to what we do daily, not a bolt-on. Over the last twelve months we have also been investing heavily in our network, Wi-Fi and improved broadband to 100mb with Virgin that will hopefully see provision that is second to none. The growth of ICT and use of the internet is only going to get bigger and we hope that having first rate ICT facilities and highly trained teachers will really help your children to excel!

 

We held our first of two Parents’ Evenings this week and thank you for all the nice comments and feedback about the school. The next Parents’ Evening is on Wednesday 9 March from 3.30pm to 6.00pm. Please could all parents (and teachers) try to stick to their allotted ten minute appointments and if you require additional time please discuss this. Thanks to PIP we raised £82 on refreshments this week and also the Squirrels’ Plant Sale made £110 which goes towards their chosen charity of The North West Air Ambulance.

 

World Book Day

 

We all dressed as Crayons and the children had great fun yesterday. Thanks to everyone for making a big effort with the costumes. Dressing up days at school are always a favourite for the children and it is always a pleasure to see the quality of work children produce when they feel inspired. The most popular crayon was blue and there were only four yellow crayons which included me!
