Newsletter 15 June 18

Dear Parents and Carers,                                                                              15th June 2018 

 

As I am sure you are all aware, this term we have been trialling a new style of homework. Thank you to all those parents who took the time to take part in our survey. The responses to the survey were very mixed. In summary, just over half of the responses were in favour of the new style-learning grid; whilst just less than half preferred the way that homework was delivered in the previous terms.  All responses have been viewed and all comments have been taken into consideration. From September, the format of homework will be altered to take account of our findings. We will share this with you during our parent’s curriculum meeting in the first week of the new term.

 

We are very excited to be having ‘PICNIC’ in to serve lunch on Monday 18th June. This will be an opportunity for the children to try some new and exciting foods. ‘Picnic Liverpool’ who supplies mainly vegan and vegetarian food, will be providing the children with their lunch. Harry and our kitchen staff will serve this.

 

On Wednesday night we were treated to a wonderful showcase of the children’s musical talents in our Music Night performance. The children performed with a variety of instruments such as: guitars, ukuleles, pianos, keyboards, violins and flutes. There were even some LAMDA acting pieces and a brilliant break dance at the end! I definitely think some of the children stole some of my best dance moves! All of the children were incredibly brave to perform and we couldn’t be more proud.

Dear Parents and Carers                                                                              8 June 2018

 

Welcome back after a very sunny half-term, let’s hope the weather stays the same for the weekend ahead.

Throughout the week, we have had a great number of sporting opportunities. On Tuesday a group of our KS2 children who attend our morning Judo club travelled to St Martin's Academy to take part in a competition. This was a fantastic experience for the children, who were able to put the skills they have learnt in club into practice in a competitive environment. Also this week, our Athletics team were overall winners of the competition at Tarporley High School with our children winning Gold medals in the 60m sprint, 500m, long jump and relay races! Good luck to our swimming team who are taking part in a swimming gala on Saturday evening.

 

Next week in school is Healthy Eating Week, during the week we will be learning about healthy snacks. Each class will be making healthy snacks to sell at our Healthy Tuck Shop on Friday 15 June. Please could we also ask for any Healthy snack donations for the stall. Mrs Lloyd also asks if we could please have some parent helpers to help run the tuck shop at the end of the day.

Dear Parents and Carers,                                                               

 

This week our year 6 children had their residential visit to the Eden Project in Cornwall. This was an excellent trip with many highlights, including surfing in St Ives. The children were excellent at surfing but once you leave the sand it’s a lot harder than it looks.  We were blessed with stunning weather throughout the trip and the children behaved incredibly well throughout the four days.

 

One of the highlights of the week has to be the wonderful cooking evening on Thursday. This event was run by the children in cooking club, where they presented a three course meal to the parents. The meal consisted of vegetable spring rolls, veg/chicken curry, sweet and sour chicken and banana fritters for dessert.

 

Also this week we are saying goodbye to two members of staff, Angie Challoner in the kitchen and our Spanish teacher Miss Bonilla. Angie is now moving on to be a Teaching Assistant and we wish her every success in her new role. Miss Bonilla is going travelling all around Belgium before returning home to Santander. The place, not the bank!

Dear Parents and Carers,                                                                                                                18th May 2018 

 

 

 

Another very busy week in school and none more so than for our Year 6 children who have been sitting their SATs tests. Having worked with the year 6 class this week, I have been hugely impressed with their maturity and aptitude towards the challenges that these tests can pose. Well done to all of the children in Linmere! They now have a Chester Zoo visit to look forward to today and I’m sure the Rounders game equipment will make an appearance over the next few weeks! 

 

 

 

As you will know, on Saturday it is the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. To celebrate this each class in school made a brilliant banana loaf to accompany the special Royal Wedding lunch that was served. We also had a large cut out of Harry and Meghan to take fun photos in, please take a look at our school Twitter account to see more of the event.

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

 

 

A shorter week in school this week, but still just as busy. Over the weekend Mr Huddart, Mr Freeman and Mrs Evans took a coach full of parents and children to watch the Ladies FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Arsenal, in which Chelsea won 3-1. For many this was there first match and also to go to Wembley for this was a great experience. The arrival home at 1am was all part of the experience!

 

 

 

Now the weather is improving it is really good to see how much outdoor learning is taking place around school. This can be seen in the class blogs that represent a small fraction of what takes place each week, but if you get the chance to have a look at them please do. The good weather though does make us all feel happier and my favourite picture of the week of was the dandelion sculptures the children made at lunchtime, cute!
