Dear Parents,   

South Cumbria Musical Festival: Well, it has been an amazing week for our older children in Broughton School! On Monday, children from Class 2 and 3 performed a poetry reading of their own choice and Ana was awarded 1st place with Amelia taking 3rd. Every child was superb and overcame their nerves to perform beautifully. In addition to this, on Wednesday, our amazing KS2 musical ensemble, led by Ruth Cullen stole the show and won 1st Place! We are so very proud of all their achievements. A massive thank you to Mrs Cullen for all her hard work to make it happen!

Spring Reports: Your child’s report is being sent home tonight and is for you to keep. Please note that this is a termly report to keep you informed of their current progress, not their final end of year achievement. You will receive a summer final report in July. If you have any questions or queries please contact your child’s teacher.

End of term Easter service: Class 2 will be leading our annual Easter service, supported by the rest of the school. It will be held in church at 2.00pm and will be expected to finish by approximately 3pm. We would love you to join us and would be grateful if you could arrange to collect your child directly from the church. There will be no afterschool Club on the last day. Please let us know if you are able to help with walking the children to church at 1.30 pm.

Family Disco: To help to raise funds towards their forthcoming residential trip, Class 3 are organising a family fun night at the Victory Hall on Friday, 12th May, 2017 from 6.30-9.30pm. All will be welcome and there will be a disco, a bar and various refreshments on offer. Tickets will be on sale after Easter and will also be available on the door. Save the day and come and join us-it will be fun!

Readathon: Thank you to everyone for getting busy reading to support our Readathon project! If you have already returned your sponsorship money, thank you, if you haven’t yet done so, please can you send in any monies to school by tomorrow, Friday, 7th April.
