CONCORD COLLEGE CHOIR COMPETITION

Good luck to all the children who will be taking part in this year’s Concord College Choir competition on Thursday 21st June.   The competition starts at 9.45 am.   Parents are welcome to come and watch but must arrive before this time. There will be a limited number of seats available. The competition will end at approximately 12.15 pm.

CRUCIAL CREW

On Friday 22nd June Year 6 pupils will spend the day taking part in Crucial Crew. This is part of our Year 6 transition/PSHE work.   The training is delivered by professionals ranging from the Police, Fire and Rescue to health professionals and provides the children with an opportunity to acquire essential life skills at an impressionable time in their development. Children will learn of the dangers of drugs, internet abuse, cyber bullying, stranger danger and how to look after themselves. Transport will be provided by the secondary school. The children will leave school shortly after 9.00 am and return in time for the end of the school day. They will be accompanied by Mrs Child. Children will need a packed lunch and a drink.

NEW RECEPTION CHILDREN AND “MOVE UP” MORNING

On Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th June the children who are starting school in September will be attending Class 1 in the mornings. Year 2 will move up to Class 2 and year 4 will move up to Class 3 for both mornings.

YEAR 6 TRANSITION DAY AT CHURCH STRETTON SCHOOL

On Tuesday 19th June those year 6 children who are transferring to Church Stretton will spend the day at Church Stretton School.   Parents must make their own arrangements for taking their children to and from the school.

UPDATE ON MRS COLLINS

Mrs Collins is feeling much better than she was and you may begin to see her out and about in Church Stretton. However she will still remain absent from school for some time as she has been suffering from Miller Fisher syndrome and this requires time to make a complete recovery.

ORTHOPTIST TO VISIT RECEPTION CHILDREN

On Wednesday 20th June the orthoptist will be coming in to see all the reception children. Parents were sent home a letter if they wished to opt out of this screening.   The visit has been rescheduled for this day after it was cancelled on Wednesday 6th June.

FRIENDS MEETING

On Wednesday 20th June there will be a Friends meeting at 7.30 pm to organise upcoming events and the Fun Night.

FRIDAY AFTERNOON ACTIVITIES CANCELLED

There will once again be no Friday afternoon activities on Friday 22nd June. Due to some staff and volunteers being unavailable that afternoon we do not have people to cover the usual activities. Year 6 will be at Crucial Crew and the children remaining in school will do outdoor activities. Please ensure that they have their outdoor clothes (ie forest school kit) in school that day.

SWIMMING

There will be no swimming this week due to the choir competition at Concord College. Also please note that next week Thursday 28th June is the last swimming lesson for this term.

DRINKS IN SCHOOL

Just a reminder to parents that children should only be bringing water into school in their drinks bottles. Fruit juice, squash and flavoured waters are not allowed.

CHESS CLUB

There is no chess club for the rest of this term.   The club will resume in September.

MEDICATION IN SCHOOL

Recently several children have been bringing in tablets or eye drops to be taken during the school day. Please be aware that if you wish your child to be given medication whilst at school, parents need to fill in an ‘Agreement to Administer Medicine’ form.

SPORTS AFTERNOON

A reminder that this event will be held on Monday 25th June at 1.15 pm. Please ensure that your child has his/her full PE kit in school and a hat, water bottle and sun cream. Many thanks to the ‘Friends’ committee who will be selling refreshments. We do hope you will be able to join us.

BEGINNING AND END OF DAY ARRANGEMENTS

It has been noticed that some parents are bringing their children into school as early as 8.30 am. Please do not bring your child into the building until 8.45am. We cannot supervise their safety before this (cleaning chemicals out etc.) and teachers may not be in their classrooms or will be preparing for the day ahead. If you do need to drop your child off early please arrange pre-school care (£2 per half hour) with Miss Carter.

Also please could all parents make sure arrangements are in place to pick up their children from school at 3.15pm promptly or promptly at the end of clubs and after school care. We understand that exceptional circumstances can delay people on occasion, and should this be the case, please contact us so that we are aware. However, we have noticed that a number of children are regularly picked up late. This is unfair on the children and delays everybody’s work. If your child is not picked up punctually you will be charged £2 which is the rate per half hour for after school care.

DOGS ON SCHOOL GROUNDS

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

MESSAGE FROM THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION

Last week we unveiled the Shropshire Centenary Sculpture during a very moving ceremony. The time and effort your children put into writing all the names is quite breath taking and everyone present last week was astounded to hear the incredible involvement you all had. So thank you!

The sculpture is available to view for free at St Chad’s up until early August so we encourage you to take the children to see the full scale of the piece they helped create.

St Chad’s is open daily 8am – 4pm and welcomes visitors, but if you are making a special journey please contact the church office on 01743 365478 to check that there are no events planned for the church which would restrict access.

After August the artwork will be on the move, but we are still looking for suggestions!

100 years ago the First World War ended, and a new world began. The example and experience of those who lived through it shaped the world we live in today. In 2018 The Royal British Legion is leading the nation in saying Thank You to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world. This is our Thank You

NETBALL CLUB

A new U11 netball club has started each Friday, 5.30 – 7.00pm, at the Outdoor Courts at Church Stretton Leisure Centre. It’s organised by Flames Netball and is aimed at all children in years 4, 5 and 6. It costs £3 per session.

“Netball is a great sport for learning life lessons and developing personal skills beyond those used on the court. The philosophy within Flames Netball Club is to develop great young people as a priority since they make the best players in life.”

“Through regular training sessions and matches we aim to create a club environment that promotes: enjoyment, friendships, skill development, an understanding of teamwork, individual achievement and above all respect for each other in a sporting environment.”

It’s a wonderful opportunity to be taught be highly experienced coaches (Nikki used to play for England!). Please do come along if you can!
