Children’s University half term Activities
Free Family Breakfast for all families who have cycled, scooted or walked to school from 8:15am in the school hall.
Learn to Ride your Bike sessions, for children who would like to ride their bikes without stabilisers, have been postponed. We will contact all children who have applied, when we have a new date.
Our Harvest Festival is a time when the children take part in a traditional celebration. We ask everyone to bring in an item of food that is then donated to the S20 Foodbank, giving help to local people.
Parents and families are welcome to join us for the assembly. We ask that visitors are respectful of the need to be quiet in assemblies to set a good example to the children and ensure that they can be heard when they come to the front to present their work. Thank you.
Please send a donation for our Harvest Festival on 22nd October.
On Thursday 24th October we are holding a Halloween Disco for the children. The price of this is £3.50 per child, payable online through your sQuid account. The ticket price includes drinks and crisps. Once you have paid, your child will be added to the classteacher’s disco list. (Please note we will not be giving out tickets.)
All the children going to the disco will stay in their classes at the end of the day and be taken into the hall by their teacher. The teachers will take the children back to their base, at the end of the disco, for parents/carers to collect. On the day of the disco children may come to school in their party clothes. (This will be easier for them rather than getting changed at the end of the day.)
We are letting you know early about our Christmas pantomime trip this year, as we have decided to go to the Lyceum Theatre to see Cinderella. The cost of tickets at the Lyceum is higher than Rotherham Theatre, but feedback tells us that the quality of the performance is much better. Hopefully by telling you now, you will be able to pay a small amount on sQuid towards the trip each week. The cost of the trip will be £17. Please pay the full amount by 27th September as we have had to pay for the tickets in advance. This is a trip for school only (not nursery). Children who are moving into school in September will be going on the pantomime trip.
It has been agreed that Pinders can now sell our school uniform. If you wish to buy uniform through this company, they are sited in Crystal Peaks Market where they will take your orders.
Uniform, embroidered with the school logo, can also be purchased through Tesco’s online uniform service at My clothing.com
