Dear Parents and Carers,


I hope you've all enjoyed a lovely half term break. This term promises to be a busy one in the run up to Christmas!


Y3 and Y4 Dodgeball tournament

Yesterday afternoon, Mrs Dey and I took the Y3 and Y4 children to a dodgeball tournament at Bakewell Junior school. The children competed with 16 other teams from local primary schools. Although we didn't win overall, our school was awarded the school games trophy which was given to the school who had impressed the coaches the most with their honesty during each match. As always, we were very proud of the sportsmanship, respect and skill which all the children demonstrated at the tournament. Well done everyone and keep up the great work! 



This morning in collective worship, the PRAISE team led a special input on Remembrance. This was particularly poignant for the older children as the Y5s and Y6s had visited the Imperial War museum in Salford yesterday as part of their current topic work. There are services of remembrance happening on Sunday in our school playground at 10.15am, at Edensor church at 10.50am and at Beeley church at 3pm which you are warmly invited to attend. 


Children in need- Friday 17th November 

On Friday, we are inviting the children to come to school in non-uniform for the day with a suggested £1 donation, payable via Parent Pay, in order to raise money to support this year's Children in need appeal. We will also be running a bake sale after school on Friday in the hall. We would welcome any donations for the bake sale to be brought into school on Thursday afternoon or Friday morning please. Many thanks.
