Marvellous Music! A Marvellous success!
Thank you to all our parents, families and friends who joined us for a wonderful celebration of music on Wednesday 12th March at St. Michael’s Church. The evening was a huge success and it was wonderful to celebrate the many musical talents of our boys and girls! Well done to Mrs Brackenridge, who co-ordinated the whole event. Thank you also to all staff who gave up their time to support the pupils. A special thank you to Mrs Hough and Ms Greenwood for their musical talents and support!
Open Evening
Just a reminder that you are invited to attend an Open Evening on Tuesday, 1st April and Wednesday, 2nd April.  It’s an opportunity for you to meet your child’s class teacher to discuss their progress.  Thank you to all our Parents/Carers who attended our Healthy School sessions with Tara Kelly on  Healthy School’s Scheme – she will be holding a stall on Parents Evening on Wednesday, 2nd April for you to have a look at the Healthy options.  We will also be having a Fair Trade Café in the Junior Hall up until 5 pm both days, please come along and join us for a cuppa and cake.
Year 5 PGL
Year 5 children had a Wonderful time at PGL on their weekend’s residential.   A Big Thank You to Mr Backstrom, Mrs Brackenridge, Mrs Costello, Mrs Barratt and Miss Edwards for giving up their weekend to facilitate the trip. 

Collective Sing Song
Reminder, we will be holding a Spring Sing Song on the Junior Playground on Friday, 4th April, the day that we finish for the Spring holiday.  Refreshments will be served for Parents and Carers in the Infant Hall from 9.00 am.  We will register the children as usual, and then bring them out on to the playground.  It’s a lovely opportunity for the whole school to come together and join in the love of singing. This year, we’ll all be learning Bob Marley’s ‘3 Little Birds.’ We hope to see you there.      
A reminder that children should wear shoes which are appropriate for playing outside in, no heels or trainers.  Also school does not permit children to wear nail varnish.
