Newsletter March 2014
Great News! We’re delighted to inform you that our talented Athletics Team WON the Liverpool City Indoor Athletics Championship competition once again. As always, our children conducted themselves superbly well. Well done to each and every one of our talented team. Also, a huge thank you to Mr Backstrom and Miss Bennett for all their hard work. They give up so much of their own time to support the boys and girls. Thank you also to our parents and families for all of their support.
The Liverpool Echo is running a front page article in the Junior Sports section on Tuesday, 4th March to celebrate this wonderful achievement. Our school have been City Champions for 16 out of a possible 22 times. A remarkable achievement indeed!
World Book Day
Just a reminder that World Book Day is on Thursday, 6th March – children are invited to dress up for this event in the theme of being anything related to books – a simple mask or hat will be more than enough to enter in the fun of the day. We would also like to invite you to a ‘book swap’ at the end of the school day. This proved very successful during last years’ World Book Day, so we would like to give you the opportunity to get involved once again. If you have any old children’s books/comics/magazines etc. please bring them to school before Wednesday, 5th March. This will be an opportunity for you to change some of your old books for FREE. Or alternatively, even if you don’t have any books to swap, please come along and collect some books to take home with you. Refreshments will be available.
Spring Concert –‘Marvellous Music in March’
We will be holding our Spring Concert to celebrate all the wonderful music we have in St Michael in the Hamlet on Wednesday, 12th March at 6pm to 7.15 pm in St Michael in the Hamlet Church. The concert will include Year 4 ‘Wider Opportunities’ brass ensemble, Year 5 and Year 6 brass, Orchestra, violins, some of Glee club and the Young Singing Leaders club. All our Parents/Carers and Members of the Local Community are welcome. Refreshments will be sold at the end of the concert and proceeds will go towards our link school in Nepal and school fund. It would be fantastic if you are able to support your children in this event.
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 your child’s 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.
Maths Homework scheme
We are almost ready to go LIVE for our ‘Abacus Maths Scheme’, a separate letter will be sent this week giving further details. Please complete the slip to let school know if you do not have internet access at home. PTO
Year 5 PGL
Just a reminder that Year 5 children will be going to PGL on Friday, 21st March for the weekend’s residential. We hope they have an enjoyable trip and look forward to hearing all about their activities when they arrive back. Separate information has been sent to Year 5 parents regarding the trip. Please see your child’s class teacher if you need further information. .
Collective Sing Song
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.
Just a reminder that for Health and Safety reasons, we ONLY allow watches and small metal stud earrings to be worn. These MUST be removed when doing PE and swimming. No other jewellery is permitted... Thank you for your support.
You may be aware that the NUT Teaching Union is planning a further day of Industrial Strike Action on Wednesday 26th March. As the vast majority of our teaching staff are in this union there is likely to be significant disruption to our school. We will inform you as soon as we have made a decision as to whether we can remain open to pupils.
