UPDATE ON MRS PYE

Following her recent illness and surgery, Mrs Pye is now recovering. During her absence class 3 will continue to be taught by Mr Bremner. Due to the nature of her illness Mrs Pye will need a lengthy recovery period and we are lucky that Mr Bremner is willing and able to cover for as long as is necessary. Everyone connected with the school sends her our best wishes.

UPDATE ON MRS COLLINS

Mrs Collins remains in hospital. She is comfortable and making steady progress. Mr Jessel will continue to teach Class 2. Once again we all send our best wishes.

SATS TESTS

Please see attached leaflet (Year 2 and Year 6 only) about SATS. If you have any questions please contact the class teacher.

UNVEILING OF ROYAL BRITISH LEGIO CENTENARY POPPY SCULPTURE

Please see the reverse of the newsletter for details of this event. Rushbury Primary School was one of the schools who took part and helped to create the sculpture.

CLASS 1 VISIT TO TICKLERTON

The afternoon of Wednesday 9th May Class 1 will be going to Ticklerton village hall to see Kenny the dragon. The consent forms for trips in the local area which parents have already filled in will suffice for this visit. The children will travel by school mini bus and be accompanied by Mrs Manley, Mrs Wilson and Miss Carter. They will not be out of school for long.

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.

AN UPDATE FROM THE GIVING MACHINE

A big thank you to all the new Active Givers who have signed up to the Giving Machine. All money raised will help buy a range of new educational resources for the children of Rushbury. The easy to use system enables you to make money for the school every time you shop online with the likes of Sainsburys, Tesco Direct, Morrisons, Amazon, Asda, Waitrose, John Lewis, Trainline, Dunelm, Next and the Book People.

All you need to do is register with thegivingmachine.co.uk with “Rushbury C E Primary School” as the chosen charity. Login to The Giving Machine the next time you shop and check your account to see how much you have raised.

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.

HEADTEACHER’S AWARDS

Annabel Hughes (and mum) – for making a super cough medicine to help the dragon.

St Chad’s Church, Shrewsbury

Unveiling of Royal British Legion Centenary Poppy Sculpture

The Churchwardens of St Chad’s Church, Shrewsbury invite you to join them for the unveiling of Shropshire’s sculpture to remember all from the county who gave their lives in the Great War. The Shropshire Poppy Appeal and St Chad’s Church have been working with two local artists, Lyn Evans and Nik Burns along with Martin Phillips of Heritage Schools to commemorate this special year. Over 80 Primary schools in Shropshire, and Telford & Wrekin have helped to create a one off sculpture which will stand as a lasting legacy to the 5,286 lives lost from Shropshire during the First World War.

Wednesday 6 June 2018 5pm

St Chad’s Church, Shrewsbury, SY1 1JX

The event will take place during one of the weekly Shropshire Great War remembrance services. These 15 minute services remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice 100 years ago that week. Immediately after the remembrance of all those from Shropshire who died 100 years ago this week (particularly including those who died in the Battle of Bligny 6 June 1918) the sculpture will be unveiled.  Light refreshments will be available afterwards.

All are welcome to this and every other service at St Chad’s, but it would be helpful if you could indicate whether you are able to attend. Do please pass this invitation on to anyone else who you think might be interested.

Please RSVP to Jenny Robey Community Fundraiser – Shropshire Mobile: 07918 562902 or jrobey@britishlegion.org.uk
