Our Yr5 and Yr6 children thoroughly enjoyed planting crocuses in aid of ‘Purple4Polio’, a charity that aims to eradicate Polio around the world. The campaign is trying to raise awareness of Polio and how easy it is to prevent.
Christmas is just around the corner, and we’re already starting to get into the festive spirit.
On Mon 12th December, we’ll be holding a fabulous family festive event. To make the event a success, we’re asking for donations of good quality toys, books, jigsaws and games. Any donations would be hugely appreciated. Please just drop them off with the mentors at either of our sites.
We are running ESOL classes again, starting in January 2017.
If you would like to take part, or if you know somebody who would benefit from the classes, please come along to the enrolment morning on Mon 5th December, 9-10.00am in the community room at New Cross Street. The sessions are open to parents from both sites, and we would love to see you there.
On Friday, the Rotary Club are visiting school to help our Yr5 and 6 children plan 1000s of bulb on the field at NCS.
The bulbs are being planted to help energise the ‘End Polio now’ campaign. For more information, please see below.
After a fabulous Takeover Challenge Day, our ‘marketing assistants’ wrote this special newsletter all about the day’s events.
Our Takeover Challenge is well under way! Our ‘Mentors’ have been running breakfast club, the ‘caretakers’ have fixed broken signs and gritted the icy paths. We’ve even had children sorting out the food bank donations and checking ICT equipment. They’ve learnt lots about what it is like to work in a school.
Here is an example from the Charity Assistants work. They did an analysis on the food bank donation and then contacted the charity to arrange delivery.
It’s only one month until our autumn term attendance assembly, which means there is still time to make sure that your attendance is fantastic. Make every day count and be in with a chance of winning some amazing prizes!
This time, children with Gold attendance (100%) could win a £50 Nando’s voucher! Wow! Don’t miss out.
Wow, the snowy weather in Ghyll Head was incredible last week. Such beautiful scenery, aren’t our Yr6 children lucky!
