Dear Parents and Carers

 

This week, Pickmere attended a Pilgrim Day at Chester Cathedral. They had a brilliant and busy day out. The children were split into groups and took part in an amazing range of activities. These included: making monks out of sugar paste; an introduction to bell ringing; learning how to make books; art work on canvas with the focus on the sea and Jesus calming the storm, and making purses with fabric and ribbon.

 

Both Nunsmere and Oakmere have been at St Peter’s Church this week. On Wednesday Nunsmere took part in a lovely Collective Worship at St Peter's church. The theme of the Collective Worship was being thankful; it was really nice to hear the variety of things the children are thankful for which was mainly food! The children also shared what they had been learning so far this year and even sang a song! I know from speaking to Mr Huddart and Mrs Lloyd that they were incredibly proud of you all, well done Nunsmere! This morning Oakmere visited the church to learn all about Baptism.

 

On the sporting front this week we have taken part in two cross country events. On Monday a group of our children took part in the Chester School Sports Association Cross Country competition hosted at West Cheshire Athletics Club. This was a huge event with over 300 children from schools across the county taking part. All our team ran fantastically well with some top 10 finishes. Later in the week it was the turn of our Year 3 and 4 children to take on the challenge of the cross-country event at Tarporley High School. As always we had a fantastic turn out for this event. Well done to all of the children who represented our school so well this week

 

On 6 December at 7pm, the PTA are holding their Christmas shopping event. This is a good opportunity for you to get ahead with some Christmas shopping.

Dear Parents and Carers

 

This week in school it has been Space Week. There have been lots of amazing science lessons going on in all of the classes. Please see the photos which the classes have posted on Twitter or take the time to read the weekly class blogs that are posted on the website.

 

The highlight of the week has been the virtual reality workshop that each class took part in. It really was out of this world. The experience started with a look around the space rocket and then took off from Earth into space. The younger children had a tour of the solar system, stopping briefly at each planet. The older children had a more detailed look at the planets and learned about their atmospheres, climates and properties. The children were incredibly enthusiastic and it was amazing just watching them with their headsets on moving around and exploring on their own.

On Monday the house captains delivered the generous donations from Friday’s Harvest Service to Mid Cheshire Food Bank. The PTA would also like to announce that a total of £190.40 was raised at the Macmillan Coffee Afternoon. Events like these help to teach the children of the importance of generosity, charity and working together as a community and  thank you for your continued support at these events.

 

At the beginning of the week each class learned about the Jewish festival Rosh Hashanah and ended the day with a collective worship focusing on the event.

 

It was Linmere’s collective worship at St. Peter’s Church this week. They focused on the ten commandments and also introduced their new job roles for their final year at Delamere. The children were fantastic and loved sharing the details of their new roles with parents and the rest of the school at the end of the day.

 

Today, each class have taken part in a workshop delivered by Chester Zoo Safari Rangers, learning about different animals around the world. The children were delighted with these workshops and had lots of facts to share with the safari rangers. Next week is World Space Week, and we have organised a virtual reality workshop for each class on Tuesday. Events like these help to make learning exciting and memorable for children in school.

This week our new starters in Hatchmere went on their very first class visit. The class spent some time in Delamere Forest using our mini-bus for the first time. They followed the Gruffalo trail and ate lunch in the forest. Miss Wood and all of Hatchmere staff were very impressed with how well everyone behaved. It was a most successful first visit. Please check out our Twitter feed to see how well they got on.

 

It was also our first Messy Church of the year. Messy Church is run by volunteers from St Peter’s Church and is a club that is always over-subscribed. This week was focused on Harvest and the Parable of the Sower. They produced some lovely collage work, which was shared in our Harvest collective worship.

 

Dee Radio visited us yesterday because we were their school of the week. Four of our Year 6 children had a chance to tell listeners about some of the fantastic things we do here at Delamere. The broadcast will be at 3.30pm on Monday 30 September. The full podcast is available on www.dee1063.com.

 

This week has been one of the very few where there have been no sporting events taking place. However, last week our Year 4 tag-rugby teams took part in the Sandstone Sports Partnership Rugby competition with Delamere Team 1 winning the event and Delamere Team 2 finishing as runners up! Well done to all the children in Nunsmere who took part and represented our school so well.

We end the week with the lovely news of a new arrival to the Delamere family; Mrs Inskip and her husband Tom have welcomed the beautiful Bailey Thomas Inskip into the world. He was born on Thursday 19 September at 2.44am and weighing 8lbs exactly. We wish them all the best and many congratulations to them.

 

The after school activity clubs started this week and it has been so lovely seeing the children taking part in a variety of clubs. On Monday there were over 50 children taking part in sporting clubs and this was fantastic to see in the glorious sunshine! Also on the sporting front this week the children in Sandymere (Year 2) have taken part in an NWAT football tournament. This took place on the school field with 6 other schools taking part. Mr Freeman was so impressed with their brilliant playing and also by the performance of our Year 6 Sports Leaders who helped to run and referee the event. Well done to you all!

Firstly, we have the Macmillan Coffee Afternoon from 2:30pm on Friday 27 September.  We also have the Quiz night from 7.30pm on Friday 4 October and finally the new event this year, the ‘Autumn Ball’.
