Drama in Y3!
Year 3 had a wonderful treat on Monday this week with a morning of fun drama games, activities and role play. A huge thank you to Year 3 parent and actor, Paul Barnhill and colleague Guy Hargreaves from ‘Goofus’ theatre group, who gave up their time to work with the children. We had fun being pirates, as well as exploring ways in which to convey our emotions through movement and story-telling, and it was lovely to see the creativity, concentration, team work and fun the children had. As part of our Artsmark journey, we are looking to offer any experiences within the arts for the children so if you would like to run a workshop or simply talk to groups of children about how your field of art works in the real world, contact Mrs. Maddock for further information of how you can become involved.

Pencil Cases for Key Stage 2 (Years 3,4,5,6)
A note from the School Council, written by Mia, Maria, Will and Robert.
After Easter holidays, school councillors have consulted with Key Stage 2 student and the overwhelming majority of the children have voted for the return of the pencil case! The children are going to be provided with their own school pens but may bring in their own pencil cases. This is OPTIONAL so not all the children have to bring one- it’s up to parents. They can’t over pack it, or get a large pencil case, it has to be a reasonable size. The children can bring from home: crayons, pencils (HB) rubbers but no silly or unnecessary things.

There were some wonderful costumes in school today. Thank you to everyone for making such a great effort. These were the class winners.

SMARTIES CHALLENGE 2017
Your child will soon be bringing home a packet of Smarties for them to enjoy over the Easter break… But please don’t throw away the tubes once the Smarties are finished, as this is where the fun starts!!
The aim of the game is for the children to fill their empty Smarties tubes with as many 20 pence pieces as they can, to raise money for our school. The children can then add their names and their Team Colour on the tube label.
The winning team with the most 20 pence pieces will be awarded a non-uniform day in recognition of their efforts!!
Please return all tubes to school by Friday 28th April.
The next FLPS meeting will be held at The Bells of Peover on Monday the 24th of April from 7:30pm.
A reminder that school closes on Friday 31st March and re-opens on Tuesday 18th April.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
