Newsletter 20 April

Dear Parents and Carers,                                                                   20 April 2018



The first week back after Easter has brought us a bit of much needed sunshine and warmth, which is a great way to start the summer term.


This week Nunsmere have been on their residential visit to York. The weather not only looked great, but the quality of the experience for the children with visits to the railway museum; The Royal Armouries; York Minister and spending time shopping in The Shambles amongst many other things was excellent. 


The residentials don't stop here though. This weekend, we have the cluster schools arts weekend at the Conway Centre in Anglesey for a group of Year 5 children. Next week, Blakemere are off to Plas Nant Glyn Farm in  Denbighshire and Pickmere take part in their canoeing and camping safari on the Shropshire Union Canal. All school trips take considerable organisation by the staff, but they do produce fantastic memories for the children. You financial support in making these happen  is also greatly appreciated. 


Also this week, year 5 and 6 have had a bread making workshop from Roberts Bakery, we have also have a cricket workshop delivered by Oulton park Cricket Club, well done to all our Year 3's who competed in the cross country at Tarporley and we even had a first place finish. Not a bad week at all.

Dear Parents and Carers, 


Thank you so much to all those who made and decorated a Commonwealth Egg. The creativity that goes into the themes every year never ceases to amaze me, as does the look of excitement on the children's faces when eventually an egg rolls into a bucket! These activities, coupled with the Easter Bingo, do make for a great end to the Spring Term and hopefully you enjoyed them as much as we did. 


Over the course of the term there have been many reasons to celebrate in the life of the school. We started the term with being named as one of the top ten primary schools in the country, according to Tatler, and ended it with a letter from Schools Minister Nick Gibb praising our pupil performance. It is good to get external recognition for the school and the job we do for your children. 


Other highlights this term have included our STEM week, which was a really good opportunity for parents to get involved in their child's learning, World Book day, the Safari Rangers visit and yesterday we even had the pleasure of an Easter Assembly led by Bishop Peter, The Bishop of Chester.

This week’s biggest highlight was the birth of Miss Wood’s son, Liam. Liam was born early on Thursday morning weighing 7 lb 14 oz. Congratulations to Miss Wood and her partner Lee and we wish them every happiness.


The last full week of our Spring term has been a busy one. As the weather seems to have warmed up a little, it has been great to see so many classes working outside the classroom and making the most of our outside areas.


On Monday Mr Freeman and three Year 5 girls travelled to the Bolton Arena to attened the Youth Sports Trust ‘Girls Active: Stepping up 4 Change’ training day. On the same day Mr Docking took some Year 6 children to Chester City Baths to take part in a water polo competition. Our Year 2’s went to Oakview on Thursday to compete in the North West Academies Trust Tag Rugby Festival, and I am pleased to say that we won.


This evening is the PIP Fashion Extravaganza at 7.30pm - there are tickets still available. For further details please see Eezee Trip and you can also buy last minute tickets on the door.

STEM Week has been a great success for all the children. The quality of the activities has been excellent, from active science workshops with Molecular Marty to learning about water with United Utilities. The highlight of the week though was the Science Fair on Wednesday in which all those who took part with their parents, presented excellent scientific displays of high quality experiments. When parents and children work together in this way it really does help with both understanding and enjoyment, making sure the children really do fly. Well done to the staff for organising and to everyone who took part.


Thank you to all those who attended Hatchmere's Stay and Play morning and afternoon. We hope you enjoyed the time in school and you got as much from the day as your children did.

Newsletter 9 March 2018

Dear Parents and Carers                                                                9 March 2018


This week we received a letter from the DFE signed by the school minister Nick Gibb praising our performance as a school and our success in Year 6 SATS. Letters like this are always a pleasure to receive and shows our commitment and dedication to the children. Whilst we acknowledge SATS results are not everything that is important in a school, gaining praise for high standards is something we should all be proud of. 


We have had the chance to take part in a number of sporting competitions and also a group of children who spent the day at The British Gymnastics Championships in Liverpool. Our netball team have had two games scoring lots of goals. We had a break dancing masterclass with St Martin's and Ellesmere with our children being taught various moves by Leon Lea. Well done to all the children who also competed in the Tarporley Cross Country event on Thursday and sadly we had to cancel our entry in the North West Schools Relay Swimming Gala due to illness which is always a shame. 


It was good to see you all at Parents’ Evening this week and the positive comments that were received about the children's work and the school are always nice to receive. 


This Sunday is the Mothering Sunday Service at 10.30am at St Peter's should you wish to attend.
