 Dear Parents,

British Science Week 12th March: This week it has been National Science week and we have really enjoyed supporting this with our very own week full of science fun and frolics! We have made slime, volcanoes, circuits, and structures with K’nex, worked together to complete the whole school challenge to build boats (with grateful thanks to Richard Hill and Jayne Wicks for their support), explored chromatography with Mrs Tracey and had lots of other exciting science activities being investigated in each class! We hope you have been able to see some of the photos on our Facebook page and some will also be put on our website tomorrow.

Sporting Activities: Today our small squad of Year 3/4 children will be going to Ulverston Victoria High School to take part in a mini tennis tournament, and tomorrow there is a Year 5/6 Girls Football Tournament. We will let you know how they get on!

KS2 ensemble: We are delighted to again be able to send all our Key stage 2 children to perform at the South Cumbria Music Festival, in the Coronation Hall next week on Wednesday, 21st March. We also have individual choral poetry readers at the festival on the Monday. Can we remind all children taking part in the festival next week that school uniforms must be worn, including a school sweatshirt/cardigan (no Dojo hoodies). Parents are welcome to attend; tickets will be available at the door.

Sport Relief Day 2018: Next week is Sport Relief week so we will be having a non-uniform day on the Friday, 23rd March in exchange for a donation to Sport Relief - wear something sporty!

Parents Evening: Letters have been sent home with children tonight, please complete and return to school with preferred day and time. Thank you.

Reminder - Young Engineers Club: If your child is interested in the Young Engineers club starting 17th April 2018 please register on line as soon as possible, we have 5 registered already but need a minimum of 12 to ensure the club goes ahead. To book: Register online www.stemkids.co.uk Cumbria

Class 3 Fundraising: To help with the cost of Class 3’s residential, a collection of clothes for reuse has been organised for 18th April. Bags will be distributed to all families which can be filled with unwanted items of adult and children’s clothing, shoes, bags and soft toys. Why not have a sort out over the Easter holidays?

Kepplewray Holiday Club: The Kepplewray Centre has very kindly been donated funding from The Duddon Parish CGP Trust Fund towards their School Holiday Club. So they are pleased to announce that they will be offering a discounted price of £25.00 per activity session. (For those within the parish).


Big Battery Hunt: We have joined the nationwide campaign to help recycle more batteries. Children will be given a small collection box to collect old batteries, there will also be a recycling container in school, we want to inspire as many young people as possible to recycle their batteries.
