May Newsletter

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

We are close to being able to use our new building, with the finishing touches being made to it. This will allow us to move resources from school out of our junior resource area, and Simmons are working over half term to extend our library area and redecorate inside, creating a better learning environment for the children.

Mr Eaton

SPORTS DAY
We have been planning ahead for our sports day, and this year we are holding it at Fuse Football. The advantage is the 3G surface is flat, as our field has more undulations than ever. We hope this proves successful. The date is confirmed as Thursday 16th June, 1pm. There will be a parents’ race, over a longer distance this year (if you wanted to start your training earlier…).

You can see more about Fuse Football on their website:

OFFICIAL OPENING OF FLEETWOOD TOWN’S TRAINING GROUND
We were delighted to be one of three local schools invited to attend the opening of Poolfoot Farm, attended by Sir Alex Ferguson. The children got the chance to spend some quality time with Steven Pressley, who was very engaging with the children. We have been lucky enough to spend time at the facility over the last 12 months, with lots of sporting competitions and football matches held there.

BIATHLE
On Sunday 8th May, several children are competing in their first Biathle, at Fleetwood YMCA, organised by Pentathlon GB. The children run 400m, swim 50m, then run 400m (it is continuous, so have to take off their trainers and dive into the pool etc!). Good luck to all of the competitors!

OPPORTUNITY TO SEE CHILDREN’S WORK
We are holding the termly session on Wednesday 4th May 3-4pm. If you cannot attend but would like to see your child’s work, please contact the teacher to arrange a suitable time.
