Dear Parents and Carers

We have been very fortunate to secure a grant from the Big Lottery Fund to organise a whole school showcase event called Takersles Celeratio of the World hih ill take plae on Thursda 13th July 2017. Further details will be available nearer the time but as part of the preparations for this event we are organising a number of different activities in the upcoming weeks.

Next Monday, 15th May, poet Paul Cookson, will be visiting our school and working with the pupils. There will be a special assembly and each class will take part in a poetry writing workshop with the artist.
Mr Cookson will also hold a book signing session in the school hall from 3.30 – 4 pm where there will be an opportunity for parents and carers to meet him. His comics priced £1 and collections of his poems prized £5 or £6 will be available for purchase should you wish to do so.

On Tuesday 16th May the pupils will have an opportunity to work with a professional dance teacher and rehearse some dance moves for their performance which they will share with the audience at the event. The dance workshop will take place during their timetabled music lesson.

Starting from next week we will also have a new after school ukulele club for parents, carers and pupils. It will run up until the event every Tuesday from 3.30 – 4.30 pm and will be free of charge. We would like to encourage you to come and try it and learn a new skill. You can bring your own ukulele or borrow one from school. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis so if you are interested in taking part, please complete the reply slip below and hand it to the office.
