Well done to the St Nicholas Football Team who played away at St Chad's Pattingham this week and won 2-0!  All of the hard work in training with Mr Mills is definitely paying off!  Well done lads!

Reading Book Amnesty 28.03.17

Can we ask families who may have the odd reading scheme or library book tucked away at home from school to return them to school if possible please.  We are auditting the books we need to complete and develop our reading resources before having a major spend.  We don't want to order books that we think we need if they are at home still.  Thanks for your help with this!

Year 4 Leaver's Hoody/TShirt 28.03.17

A Year 4 parent has contacted me today to ask if I minded her organising via the school post, a Leaver's Hoody or Tshirt with all of the children's names on the back.  You have probably seen these from other schools.   Whilst the letters would come out from the school, this will be organised by the parent and all orders and exchanging of monies must be carried out outside of school please.

Whilst not all parents might want them, we would like to give parents the opportunity now should they not wish to have their child's forename and surname included on the garment.   Please inform myself or the school office by the end of term if you would like to have your child's name omitted from the design.   Please look out for more details about this opportunity in due course as our parent has prices and more information for you.

Childhood Obesity Plan 28.03.17

Please click here to read more about the government's Childhood Obesity Plan which will have a growing impact in schools over the next few years.  As a school we have concerns about some of the contents of the children's lunchboxes and also want to ensure that children are maximising opportunities to be active.  In the Summer Term we will be having a big drive on this and encouraging parents to support this.  Look out for info after Easter. Please also see attached the St Nicholas Vision For Physical Activity for 2020! 

The information is easy reading and gives an overview of the things in place to support health for our children and families such as:

  • the soft drinks industry levy
  • reducing sugar in products
  • making healthy options available in the public sector: schools, hospitals etc
  • helping all children to experience and enjoy an hour of physical activity every day
  • creating a new healthy rating for schools

1R Forest School 24.03.17

1R were very lucky - the sun came out for our Forest School session and we could take our coats off! The children began by collecting kindling and fuel for our campfire. We remembered how to be safe around a fire too. We then lit the fire and cooked some toast. The toast was delicious! After playtime 1R explored the soil and found a range of different minibeasts. The worms even had very beautiful homes made for them to keep them safe. Well done 1R!

Easter Bonnet Parade Info 17.03.17

Advance Notice – Easter Bonnet Parade 3pm This year again we will be asking children that wish to, to participate in an Easter Bonnet Parade in school on Tuesday 4th April. Bonnets can be as simple or as intricate as you wish and can be heavily led by the children, you do not need to go out and buy anything special for this. Often children like decorating an existing hat or making one out of card and gluing on things like mini eggs, small chick cake decorations, straw, egg designs, daffodils etc. (Just a few ideas – I am sure you are much more creative than I am!) There are lots of ideas online if you type Easter bonnet into Google. We would ask children to bring them into school on the morning of Tuesday 4th April and they would then be worn in a special Easter Bonnet Parade. This would take place from 3pm on the school playground (weather permitting). Children will come out in their year groups (one year group at a time) and complete a circuit of the playground for parents to and families to see what they have created. Children who do not take part will remain in the classroom. We would anticipate getting all year groups round by 3.30pm at which point children can go home as normal. N1 children are actively encouraged to come back to join in and could come into N2 from 2.50pm onwards.

Easter Play Costumes 14.03.17

Do any parents from older year groups have no longer needed shepherd type/Biblicalesque robes that could be borrowed or donated to school for our Year 1 Easter Play?  If so please see Mrs Jackson on the Year 1 door in the morning or pop in and see Year 1 teachers.  Any help much appreciated! We would like all Year 1 children to also have a tea towel type head dress and cord and where possible for Year 1 parents to provide a robe/dressing gown.  Any donations/costumes must be in school by Monday please.
