Dear Parents and Carers                                                                 Friday 7 June 2019 

 

Welcome back to our very last half term of the academic year. This year has flown by and unbelievably we only have 6 weeks left before finish for the summer.


This week Linmere took part in an excellent safety session at Crucial Crew, held at the Northwich Memorial Hall.  They learnt about water safety, safe behaviour around dogs, first aid, keeping healthy, staying safe at the train track, staying safe online and various other ways to keep themselves safe.  It was a really informative afternoon and the children learnt a lot and enjoyed the experience.

 

On Tuesday, we had the pleasure of inviting the author of 'The Beehive', Simon Adeptun to school.  He delivered a range of workshops to each class in school and we also learnt about the process of becoming an author in his whole school assembly.  His most important message to the children was that they should never give up.  

 

Sandymere had a wonderful time on Wednesday morning. They spent the morning in Pizza Express learning about how to make pizzas and learning about a wide range of ingredients. Each child made their very own pizza, which they all tucked into for lunch.

 

Unfortunately, all of our planned sporting events had to be cancelled this week because of the weather. Fingers crossed for a better week next week.

 

Today, we held a very special collective worship. This was a farewell for Reverend Elaine, who is retiring this week. Reverend Elaine has been a huge support to the school, the staff and all of our pupils. As well as running our very successful and always over subscribed Messy Church, Elaine has served on our school Governing body and on the board of NWAT (North West Academy Trust). We will all miss her very much and our collective worship was a way to say a great big thank you.

Dear Parents and Carers                                                                                                              24 May 2019 

 

This week, Linmere were incredibly lucky to have such fantastic weather on their trip to the Eden Project in Cornwall. The Twitter updates showed just how much fun they were having and a great way to keep us all updated. The behaviour of the children was outstanding throughout the trip.

 

Yesterday, seven children from Delamere visited Waterstones in Chester as finalists in the NWAT 500 words competition. Congratulations to Murray Turner, William Webster, Ted Dedicoat, Gabriel Green, Bella Irwin, Eleanor Earle and Max Gascoigne.  Murray and William came second and third place respectively, out of 14 finalists. Each child was awarded a gift voucher for Waterstones and school has been given a total of £450. In addition, there have been five children who made it through the first round of Radio 2’s competition.

 

It has been a very busy week on the sporting front with lots of events and competitions taking place across all Key Stages. Our infants took part in a Rugby Festival at Tarporley High School, a group of our Year 3 and 4 children attended the Warrington Wolves Rugby League Festival and our Year 5 and 6 team took part in the Sandstone Sports Partnership Athletics competition; winning two Gold medals, a Silver and a Bronze. Also this week, Mr Freeman organised a Handball Competition for our Academy Trust schools that was hosted by Rudheath Senior School. This was a fantastic event with five schools taking part. Well done to all of the children who have represented the school so well this week.

Dear Parents and Carers                                                                                                              17 May 2019 

 

I have been incredibly proud of our Year 2 and 6 pupils across the last couple of weeks. Both our Year 2 and Year 6 classes have been busy tackling their SATS (Standardised Assessments). It has been lovely to see how the children have taken each test in their stride. Each one determined to show how off what they have learned. This week, our Year 6 children have been tested in Reading, Grammar and Spelling, Mental Arithmetic and Maths Reasoning. These tests take place over four mornings and as a reward the Year 6 are off to visit Chester Zoo today. Our Year 2’s did their final test today which was Grammar and Spelling and I know Miss Prince has a special surprise planned for them next week.

 

This week Mr Freeman organised a KS1 tag-rugby competition for the Academy Trust schools. This was a fantastic event with nearly 70 children from seven schools taking part in some friendly competition. All the children from each school played fantastically well and improved with each game. Also a special mention to our Year 6 Sports Leaders who helped to run the event and officiated the games with great confidence. 

 

Also this week, some of our Hatchmere children took part in their very first school sports competition when representing Delamere at the Sandstone Sports Partnership Football Festival at Tarporley High School. All of the children played exceptionally well and thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

Dear Parents and Carers                                                                                                                                                                  10th May 2019 

 

It has been a shorter week in school with the bank holiday on Monday; I hope you all had a lovely extended weekend with your family and friends.

 

This week we have had a number of sporting events going on. Some of the children in Blakemere class took part in the North West Academies Trust Swimming Gala at Ellesmere Primary in Shropshire. This was a fantastic event with the children competing in a number of individual and team relay races against other schools within our Trust. Also this week our Sandymere football team took part in a football festival at The Grange School and they were able to win all of their matches! Well done to all of the children who represented our school so well this week!  

 

Once again we have been contacted by local residents in relation to parking and driving out of the top car park. Particularly when exiting the top car park please could you ensure that you stop and look right at the marked and signed areas, thank you.

 

Also please can I remind parents to regularly check your Eezee Trip accounts and pay for any outstanding items as we are approaching the final months of the school year.

 

It is SATs week in school next week for the Year 6 children and we wish them every success. Mrs Carter is running a breakfast club at 8.25am for the children from Monday to Thursday. All year 6 children are welcome to attend.  

 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Ricky Huddart

 

Assistant Headteacher
