Friday Bulletin – 16th March 2018

16 March 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

Next Friday, we are inviting children to wear their favourite sports gear to school for a day full of sporty challenges including: the big hula hoop challenge; the mile run challenge; tennis and basketball challenges and much more. We ask that children bring a donation to support the event (£1 per pupil would be great). As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. The money raised in school will be sent to Sport Relief to support some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and around the world.

This will be a busy weekend for pupils in Year 4 as they prepare for next week’s residential to Dukeshouse Wood. I’m sure the excitement levels will build over the weekend. Let’s hope for warmer weather conditions for the children’s adventures next week!

Have a lovely weekend.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
