Lyceum Theatre Visit – 14th December 2017

Our annual visit to the Lyceum Theatre for this years’ pantomime ‘Mother Goose’ will take place on Thursday 14th December 2017

The cost of the tickets is £10.00 (this can be paid in installments).

The performance starts at 10.15 am so we will be leaving school at 9.15 am to walk to the Lyceum Theatre. Please ensure that your child has a warm coat and sensible shoes.  The performance will run over lunchtime, so children will need a packed lunch. If your child receives free school meals then a packed lunch will be provided by school.

Please return the reply slip along with payment to the school office by Thursday 30th November 2017.

Year 4 – Roman Workshop

As part of our topic on the Romans, Year 4 will be taking part in a Roman Soldier workshop on Tuesday, 25th September. We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £10 per pupil to cover the cost of the workshop which will involve a roman soldier in full armour describing life as a soldier, displaying his weaponry and demonstrating the equipment used.

The children will be led through soldier’s drills and a mock barbarian battle.

The amount can also be paid in instalments, please speak to the office staff for any further information.

Thank you very much for your support.

We are organising a whole school visit to The Lyceum Theatre on Friday 16th December 2016 to see this years’ pantomime ‘Snow White’.

The cost of the tickets is £10.00 (this can be paid in instalments).  Activities such as this are beneficial because they give pupils experiences they may not otherwise have and this impacts positively on their learning and progress.

The performance starts at 10.15 am so we will be leaving school at 9.15 am to walk to the Lyceum Theatre. Please ensure that your child has a warm coat and sensible shoes.  The performance will run over lunchtime, so children will need a packed lunch. If your child receives free school meals then a packed lunch will be provided by school.

To enable your child to attend please complete the reply slip below and return it along with your payment to the school office by Wednesday 30th November 2016.

Autumn Term Clubs

Dear Parents and Carers

We have arranged the following Club activities for the autumn term. If your child would like to attend please book a place(s) at the main office as soon as possible. Places are limited so they will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Your child will need to be collected on time from the Clubs that take place outside of normal Academy hours as unfortunately we are not able to provide adult supervision once the club is finished. If you are unable to collect your child on time we will place your child in After School Club, which will be charged at the normal rate.

Football Teams

We are very excited to be starting our own football teams this year on Monday and Thursdays. If your child wishes to be a part of a football team they will need to be able to attend after school football matches against other teams after school. We will also, need help taking the players to the matches and you will need to pick up your child from the different venues that they will be playing at. So please take this into consideration if your child wishes to join the team.

There will be 16 places for each team and places are subject to the behaviour of your child. If their behaviour is not acceptable during the club or in school their place will be offered to another child.

 

 

Thank you
