YEAR 5 AND YEAR 6 ORIENTEERING

On Thursday 24th May in the afternoon Years 5 and 6 will travel by mini bus to Cardingmill Valley to take part in the inter-school orienteering competition. They will be accompanied by Mr Bremner, Mrs Wilson and Mrs Child. The children will need to wear PE kit and trainers for this activity.

HEIGHT AND WEIGHT MEASUREMENTS

On Wednesday 23rd May the school nurse will be coming into school to measure the height and weight of reception and year 6 children. Parents of year 6 children were given a form to opt out of this procedure if they so wished.

CROSS COUNTRY CLUB

Friday 25th May will be the last cross country club of this term. The second half of the summer term is always very busy with lots of other activities going on. It has therefore been decided to cancel the club for these few weeks. It will resume in the autumn term.

SUMMER FAYRE

Please note the change of date for the Summer Fayre. This event will now take place on Thursday, July 5th from 5pm. Children, families and the local community are invited to join in the fun, which will include the traditional wet slide, a barbecue, bottle and pudding stalls, obstacle course, bouncy castle and welly throw to name a few. More information to follow closer to the time.

YEAR 2 SATS

Year 2 SATS will take place week commencing Monday 21st May.

DOGS ON SCHOOL GROUNDS

Will parents please not bring dogs onto the school playground or field. Thank you.

SCHOOL PRIVACY & CONSENT NOTICE

In accordance with the new General Data Protection Regulation which comes into force on 25th May, a privacy and consent notice was sent out with the newsletter last week. Would parents please complete page 2 and return to the office as soon as possible if they have not already done so. (There is no need to complete anything in Part 3). Thank you.

SPONSOR A METRE UPDATE

A quarter of the playground squares have been sponsored in our Sponsor A Metre Appeal – that’s 100 square metres so far! This is a fantastic achievement and a big thank you goes to everybody who has donated. Thank you for your continued support. Blue sponsor slips are available from reception for anyone wishing to donate. Thank you for your continued support

SUMMER WEATHER PREPARATION

At Rushbury, your children spend a significant amount of time learning outdoors. With the summer term fast approaching, this is a reminder to send your children prepared for sunny weather. We advise hats and sun-cream for protection. Sun-cream can be kept in school bags or given to the class teacher for safe keeping. If you would like us to store sun-cream (for your child to put on themselves), please make sure the bottle is clearly labelled with your child’s name. Thank you.
