7th June

Two new boys have joined us this week, Aleksander in year 6 and his brother Antoni in year 2; we hope they will be very happy here.

Adam Hayter moved to the Hull area during half-term, so has now left us.

Cycling club was a success on Monday and the pupils seemed to enjoy themselves.  Can we ask that they leave their bikes in the bike racks in the staff car-park each Monday please.

Kwik Cricket.

A group of 8 upper junior pupils will be taking part in a Kwik Cricket Competition at Westgate Cricket Club in Lancaster on Tuesday 11th June.  We are hoping for a repeat of the success they had at the Over Kellet tournament a couple of weeks ago!  The event starts after lunch, they will eat their packed lunch before they leave school.  What time they get back to school depends on how well they do in the competition.  We are suggesting they may be back at 5pm; but we will text you when they leave Lancaster.  An extra snack would be a good idea for them to have either between games or at the end.  The pupils taking part will find an information sheet in their Friday bag today.
