Newsletter – 20th July 2017

St James Primary School Newsletter
Respect Perseverance Trust
20thth July 2017

With term ending tomorrow this is the last newsletter of the year. It has been such a busy time in school with so many fun activities for the children to get involved in. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has so generously supported the school this year. We wish all the children who are leaving us to join new schools all the best for the future. I’m sure everyone is ready for a well-earned break and we look forward to hearing all about the children’s adventures when we return to school on Wednesday 6th September.

Sporting events continue right up to the end of term. Our golf team took part in the Tri-golf final at Tilsley Park on a very hot Friday last week. The players all demonstrated fantastic life skills and were a delight to accompany on this, our first visit, to the county finals.
Later that day two teams of girls took part in the final tournament of the year. Again both teams were a delight to accompany and, despite the very hot weather, played their best football. One of our teams came third and the other fifth. Well done to all the girls for playing so well and supporting each other so admirably in such difficult conditions

The year 4,5,6 production was a huge success earlier this week. Pirates of the Curry Bean has meant a lot of hard work for everyone involved and this certainly paid off in the final performance. Well done to all the children who spent so much time learning lines and perfecting their acting skills. A huge thank you to Mrs Munns, Mrs Sharp, Mrs Smith and Mrs Kevlin for working so hard on making scenery, props and costumes.
Finally thank you to Mrs Richards, Mrs Smith and Miss Dade who have spent many hours working to ensure this production came together as it did.

It was lovely to see so many parents at Open Morning this morning. The children were proud to show off all the hard work they have completed this term and also keen to show how well they have worked with Mr Campbell. I’m sure anyone who was there will agree the music was amazing and I would like to thank Mr Campbell for all his hard work. Who knew we had so many Bollywood dancers in yr 6! It was a great way to round off a very busy term.

As last year we would like children to send post cards to school from their summer adventures during the holidays. We will use these in September to make a display of our travels. We look forward to receiving postcards from far and wide.
Happy Travelling!
