Newsletter 07.06.2024

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back to the final and busiest term of the school year! We hope you all enjoyed a break over half term.


The junior children have been excited to start their rehearsals for 'Matilda the Musical' this week and it all seems to be going well so far. 


The school photographer came in on Wednesday and took the class photos but is returning later in the month (on a nicer day!) to take a whole school photograph. Details will follow next week about how to place an order for the class photos. 


Mr Sutton, who has been working in our infant class for the last couple of months, will be leaving us today as he has now completed his teaching placement. Mr Sutton has been hugely popular with the infants, and we will all miss his presence in the classroom. We wish him all the very best as he continues in his teaching career. 


Class 3 clarinet concert for parents- Monday 10th June at 2.30pm

Just a reminder that Class 3 parents and carers are warmly invited to come into school on Monday afternoon at 2.30pm for a short clarinet concert. The children are busy preparing songs and pieces for their trip to Bridgewater Hall in Manchester where they will play alongside the Halle orchestra on 18th June. We're also teaming this experience with a visit to the Runway centre at Manchester airport on the way home to see Concorde! Exciting times!!


Sports day- Thursday 27th June

Unfortunately, we have been having real issues with our school field this winter. The moles moved in and the ground itself has never really recovered from all the heavy rain this winter. Consequently, the flatter section of the school field has become very uneven and bumpy. Rather than having the children run their races for sports day on a potentially quite dangerous surface, we have been granted kind permission by the estate to use the cricket ground at Chatsworth for our sports day this year. 

As planned, we will still continue with the 'Pilsley Bake Off' after sports day but this will take place at the cricket pavilion instead. Fingers crossed for some sunshine as the cricket ground will be the perfect setting for our afternoon of sports! 


Junior trip to Derby Open Centre- Thursday 13th June

A reminder that the junior children are visiting Derby Open Centre on Thursday. Please remember to send a drink and a packed lunch for your child and they need to be at school for 8.20 please. We will be leaving school promptly at 8.30am so do please arrive on time- thank you 🙂 We should be back at school by 3.15pmbut it may be wise to make alternative arrangements if your child usually goes home on the school bus in case we are running late.
