8th February

Infant parents will  have noticed that Mrs Hamlett is not currently in school.  We are expecting her back after half-term.  We are fortunate in school that Miss Allen is able to take the class assisted by Mrs Whitehead.


An envelope was found on Tuesday morning close to school, with some money in it.  If you think it might be yours, do come and talk to us.


Junior Football Event

Didn’t they do well!  We are very proud of all the children who attended the football event at Arkholme.  Years 3 and 4 enjoyed taking part and years 5 and 6 won their event with a penalty shootout!


BBC Radio 2’s 500 Words

Year 5 & 6 children are being encouraged to enter this year’s BBC Radio 2’s 500 words writing competition.  This is optional homework.  We have included the rules in their homework files.  Entries will be submitted by school so need to be typed up and returned to school by Tuesday 26th February please.



Monday 11th February is the final session of Junior Fitness Club.  To replace this Kirkby Lonsdale Rugby Club will be running a Junior Rugby club starting on Monday 25th February after school .  The club will run from 3:30pm to 4:30pm, the club will run for 6 weeks and cost £2 per session, so £12 in total.  Please complete the slip at the end of the newsletter if your child/ren wish to take part, there is a limit of 15 pupils for the club, so forms need to be back on Monday.

There will be sign-up sheets in juniors from Monday morning for the 2 lunch time clubs starting after half-term. Mrs Cook’s Board Game Club on Friday is for pupils in years 3 & 4. Mrs Cottam’s Creative Writing Club on Wednesday will be open to any junior pupils. We may need to limit numbers, so it’s important to remember to sign-up!

So if you’re having a spring clear out of clothes, bric a brac and toys please put them to one side for us and drop off at school from Wednesday 27th February.   Any remaining jumble will be collected by Bags2School to help us raise even more funds.  If you can help us advertise the event by popping a poster up somewhere locally please do, the poster is available on the PTA facebook page to print or ask Cassie Harrison for some.

We will need at least 6 volunteers for the morning and some to help set up after school on the Friday.  Please let Michelle Norris or Cassie Harrison know as soon as possible if you can help.  As always huge thanks for your support.
