Newsletter 12 October 2018

                                                                                                                  Friday 12 October

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

It has been a real mix of weather this week, with the warmest day in October for seven years, and then today we are supposed to have heavy rain and up to 45mph winds. Hopefully this will improve over the weekend.

 

I know you should not be even thinking about Christmas until December, but this week we have been knee deep in all things Christmas as the whole school have been creating Christmas cards. These will be available to purchase soon, helping you to get organised and at the same time as raising some money for PIP.

 

This week’s Collective Worship at St Peter’s was led by Nunsmere and the theme was Kindness and Generosity. We learned that Jesus teaches us how to be generous and we should be giving to bless and not to impress. Thank you to Nunsmere for all your hard work.

 

On Thursday Eco- Club took part in the Big Soup Share, this is a RHS campaign for schools that encourages children to grow, harvest and use vegetables in community spaces and schools. Last year the campaign served over 57,000 portions of soup. Our Soup share wasn’t quite as big, but thank you to al those parents and families that attended.

It has been a very busy and exciting week on the PE and sporting front on top of our twice weekly PE sessions,

swimming and lane swimming. On Wednesday, we welcomed the USA 7's Rugby Squad who delivered a

fantastic assembly to the children before taking part in a training session on our school field! This was a unique

opportunity to meet and observe the professionals as they trained. The squad were fun and friendly and please

see our Twitter feed for some fantastic video clips and photographs.

As ever, we have been very active in sports competitions this week. Last Friday, the Year One children took

part, and were the winners, of a football festival at Tarvin. On Wednesday, we hosted, and won, an Academy

Trust KS1 Football Festival with over 50 children from five different schools taking part. This was a brilliant

afternoon and it was good to see our Year 6 Sports Ambassadors getting involved and helping to support the

younger children. On Thursday it was the first of our cross-country competitions at Tarporley High School.

There was a great turn out by the KS1 children, with two of them winning Gold and Bronze medals.

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Well it has been a very wet week in one way or another. Thank you once again for your patience and understanding on Wednesday. Unfortunately the school had to be closed as we had neither water nor electricity, but due to a great team effort – with particular thanks to Mike and Gordon school is now safe and accessible to all.

 

In the short term, the front office and reception have been relocated to the Quiet Room, beneath the staff room. Mrs Oliver and Mrs Venables will still be at the main door at the start and end of the school day to help with any enquiries.

 

Linmere’s collective worship that was due to take place on Wednesday will be re-scheduled and we will let you know shortly when this is to take place.

 

This week we have had an Eco – Afternoon. This was in preparation for our Green Flag Eco-Award that takes place today. The children have worked hard in our school grounds. Hatchmere have been busy making and re-filling all of our bird feeders. Some classes have been weeding and tidying our flower beds. Linmere and Pickmere have been preparing their planter beds with winter vegetables. Please see Twitter and class blogs to learn more about their busy afternoon.

Dear Parents and Carers                                                             14 September 2018

 

We have had a busy second week back at school, with lots of learning experiences being put on for the children. The children in Linmere and Pickmere started off the week by going to Liverpool Queens Dock for a Swim Safe open water session. This involved the children going into the open water with wet suits and swim caps on. They had a fantastic time learning about how to tread water, call for help and keep themselves safe in the harsh conditions. All of the teachers and parent helpers were so impressed with how the children conducted themselves during this activity, even when faced with the odd jellyfish in the water!

 

On Tuesday the children in Sandymere and Blakemere were treated to a United Utilities water workshop. They were taught all about the water cycle and how it works. They then looked at the different ways in which we use water and how we can reduce this to help us be more eco-friendly. 

 

To end the week, the children in Linmere have gone on a ‘Getting to Know You’ camping residential. Whilst they have been away they have taken part in a range of team building activities, learnt a range of outdoor survival skills and slept in large bell tents.

Dear Parents and Carers                                                                             7 September 2018

 

I hope you all had a restful and enjoyable summer. It was lovely to see how well the children have settled into their new classes. Our new starters in Hatchmere have had an amazing start and even their first lunch with their buddies on Thursday seemed to go very well. I know the Hatchmere staff have been most impressed with how well they have settled in.

 

Over the summer, Miss Renshaw and her partner Tom were married. Congratulations to you both, Mr and Mrs Inskip. Also, we heard that we had been successful in our application for a Learning Outside the Classroom Bronze Award, recognising that as a school we are working hard towards ensuring our children are getting lots of opportunities to do their learning outside.

 

Can we please remind Parents and Carers with children in Hatchmere and Oakmere, at morning drop and at the end of the school, to please walk around the main building and not cut through as the main building is very congested during these busy times. An additional reminder to all is that we are a nut free school and all products containing nuts cannot be brought in or consumed in school. Can you please double check snacks and packed lunches?

 

Next week clubs start, all our clubs are very popular and are often oversubscribed. We endeavour to make the process as fair as possible and we review our procedures for this each term.
