Dear Parents/Carers, ‘No Pens Wednesday’ was a great success this week, with all sorts of exciting activities happening across the school; cooking apple cakes, singing, origami, art and crafts, PE and drama sketches to name just a few. Well done to all the children for working so well together in groups and pairs.
Dear Parents/Carers, Many thanks to all of our parents for supporting the NSPCC charity by sending in such generous donations. At the moment we have raised over £500.
Dear Parents/Carers, All of our clubs have started well this week and it is fantastic that the children are keen to participate in the new opportunities that are being offered. Please can parents make sure that they let the adult who is running the club know if their child is unable to attend any of the sessions, so that we know exactly where all of our pupils are at all times.
The NSPCC are working with us this half term by running workshops for our Year 5/6 pupils and by leading parent and whole school assemblies. In return, the children have been asked to take part in ‘Buddy’s work out’ next week and to see if they can get friends and family to sponsor them.
It has been a very busy term with so much packed in; bikeability, may day event, class day trips, music afternoon, parents meetings, sports day, end of year shows, summer fair, careers morning plus an open afternoon this week. Thank you to all of our staff for working so hard this year and it is with sadness that due to various reasons we have some staff leaving.
Well, what a fantastic week for Newtown pupils. The end of year show ‘Go for Gold’ was a great success and we were extremely proud of all of our children.
