Newsletter 20 October 2017

Dear Parents and Carers                                                                 20 October 2017

 

This week was a bit blustery and over the weekend we are looking out for storm Brian! However, we hope that we still have a great turn out for Open Day tomorrow and thank you to all the parents who have agreed for their children to take part. Please can you ensure they are all in school uniform and really well buffed up. Open Day finishes at 12-00 noon for collection and promises to be a fun morning.

 

During the week a number of children have taken part in sport. Our netball team won their first game of the season. Despite horrendous rain our two rugby teams took part in the Chester and District Cup with our B team losing 5-4 in the final and our Year 5 hockey team competed very well in a Year 6 competition, finishing a very credible 5th overall and winning the award for most improved team. 

 

We also had our best ever attended Messy Church with over 40 children attending and Revered Elaine was very grateful to you all for coming along. 

 

Today was Kick it Out Day. The children wore red and had an assembly about racism and attitudes toward race. They watched a video in assembly which we have put on the school Twitter feed. We also raised over £130 for the charity. There are also many other highlights of the week which you can see on Twitter and in the class blogs.

This week, following a great 2-0 win for our girls’ football team, we took a group of children to watch Liverpool Ladies play football. This is part of our push on giving children opportunities to watch our best female sports people compete in their various fields. We are actively trying to promote female sporting role models, as tragically, despite the good work we do here, the tail off in girls taking part in sports as they move through school life is a growing issue. Our aim throughout the year is to watch, promote and play a number of sports plus meet a few role models along the way. This will culminate in a trip we are planning for you and your children to the Ladies FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday 5 May next year. Role models don't just have to be the people we see in the media though, so if you are enthused by sport or have done something sport related that you think the children would like to hear about please get in touch. 

 

In class, Pickmere have been inspired writers and the QR code on the email takes you to their excellent newspaper reports. Please take time to have a read and feel free to comment or send feedback as this will hopefully help inspire them further.

We have had a great week of donations this week. Last Friday night our PIP Pamper Evening made just over £1000 for school, the Macmillan Coffee Afternoon raised £150 and today we were delighted with the donations for Mid Cheshire Food Bank at our Harvest Service.

 

I am a Headteacher Ambassador for the Youth Sports Trust and on Monday I attended an event  at Loughborough University. The day was led by Baroness Sue Campbell and it was my pleasure to talk about what we do at our school with a wider audience. In a typical sporting week at Delamere, our football team also won again, we had trail running on Wednesday lunchtime, Key Stage 1 cross country, every child been swimming and we have also arranged next week for a school trip to Liverpool Ladies V Sheffield Ladies in the Ladies Premier League. Not all schools are like the the article below! If only they focused on positive examples of what can be achieved...

Throughout the term we are having a big push on learning outside the classroom and all our Key Stage 1 children had a great day at Beeston Castle. Our children also took part in World Animal Day on Wednesday.

 Dear Parents and Carers

 

It was our pleasure to host the first of many sports events with our partner schools on Wednesday.  Our Key Stage 1 footballers took centre stage and each team competed well, played some good football and really enjoyed jumping around in the mud! Congratulations to all of them and in particular the Delamere 'Reds' who won the cup. Sticking with football our older children are through to the second round of the Chester Cup after coming back from being 3-0 down at half time to win 5-4 against the Arches School in Chester.

 

On Tuesday, Rachel Lindsay visited the school as part of our programme of inspiring authors.  Each class had a talk from Rachel about writing and the quality of the children's responses was excellent.

Dear Parents and Carers

 

This week we interviewed our Year 6 children for their positions of responsibility. These are roles that we ask the children to write a letter of application for and attend an interview. All their letters were excellent and at interview despite all being nervous, we were highly impressed with their growing confidence. All the children were given a role and we also appointed our House and Vice Captains. Our Year 6's also have taken part in their team building camping experience too so it has been a very busy week for them!

 

I particularly enjoyed the Key Stage 2 Anglo Saxon Day this week in which the children all dressed Anglo Saxonesque and had a hog roast. The pictures look great on Twitter and well done to all the staff for organising such a memorable experience. 

 

On Wednesday the whole school planted spring bulbs. We still have quite a few left to plant and if any parents could help with this on Monday morning next week we would be grateful.
