St James Primary School Newsletter
Respect Perseverance Trust
9th June 2017
Welcome back to term 6. This is a very busy time at school, both in the classrooms and also in the office. We do everything we can to keep the website and newsletters up to date with activities and events. Please do make sure that you read them to avoid the disappointment of missing something.
The week before half term was a very busy one for sporting teams at school. We had one group of children in the year 3/4 quad kids event and 2 groups in the year 5/6 event.
We were blessed with amazing weather on both days. All the children rose to the occasion and despite some initial nerves, everyone competed and finished in all events. There were some superb individual performances, but undoubtedly the thing that made the groups of children stand out for all the adults there, was their fantastic attitude and support for each other. Children could be seen cheering on their team mates at every opportunity and running alongside when they could see that someone was struggling.
Well done for the brilliant teamwork and perseverance shown by everyone who took part.
At the end of the events we were the highest placed small school in the year 3/4 event finishing 5th and Charlotte K. was the third placed girl of all the athletes there.
Friends of St James are busy organising the summer Fayre for next Saturday 17th June 2-5pm. This morning, as children and parents arrived laden with donations for the tombola stall, I was once again amazed by your generosity – Thank You. Do come along on the day and enjoy the fun.
Congratulation to both Mrs Munns and Mrs Sharp who both passed their Forest School Assessments this week. This means we have more Leaders in school and can therefore offer this opportunity more widely.
HEAD LICE are back again!!!
Please make sure you check your child’s head regularly and treat as necessary. A fine tooth comb and conditioner are one of the easiest ways to get rid of this pest.
Even better would be to prevent head lice in the first place. Tea tree oil is an effective repellent and can be diluted and sprayed on to a childs head. ALL LONG HAIR SHOULD BE TIED UP.
