EASTER SINGING, EASTER SERVICE AND EASTER EGGS

HAMPER AND HOMEBAKES REQUEST FROM THE ‘FRIENDS’

The Co-op has kindly allowed us to hold an Easter Hamper and Homebake stall on Tuesday, April 9th. The event will coincide with school children singing Easter songs at the store on the same day. All proceeds will go towards Rushbury School funds. We are appealing for donations of homebakes, cakes and biscuits and/or donations for the hamper. Homebakes should be dropped off at the Co-op early on the Tuesday morning or passed onto Laraine Oxley or Georgie Hercock. Please hand in hamper donations to the school office for collection by Monday 8th April. Any help to run the stall would also be much appreciated. The Friends Committee are grateful for all support and help with this event. Thank you

EASTER SINGING AT THE CO-OP

At 11.00am on Tuesday 9th April, the children will be singing Easter songs at Church Stretton Co-Op. We will mainly be taking the older children because of transport limitations.

RECORDERS

Please make sure your child has their recorder in school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as they will be rehearsing and playing at the Co-Op and the Easter service.

EASTER EGG HUNT

Flyers were sent out with last week’s newsletter about the Easter Egg hunt on Sunday 7th April to raise funds for the Rushbury Millenium Green play equipment but there was no time given. We have since been informed that the event starts at 10.30 am.

BOOKFEST STORY BOOKS

All the children have been very busy writing stories and making their own story books for this year’s Shrewsbury Bookfest. Over the Easter break a winner will be chosen from each school that enters as well as overall county winners. The children have made some amazing story books. After judging, the story books will be returned to school and we will have an exhibition of their wonderful work.

EASTER SERVICE

This is a reminder that this year the Easter Service will be held on Wednesday 10th April at 9.30am at St Peter’s church. This will be followed by refreshments in the school hall. On the school website it did say the service was on Thursday. This was an error which has now been corrected.

EASTER EGG DECORATING COMPETITION

On Thursday 11th April (after the Key Stage 2 visit to Theatre Severn) we will be holding an egg decorating competition. We are inviting the children to decorate a boiled egg at home and bring it to school on Thursday 11th April.   There will be a prize winner in each class and an overall school prize for the winning egg.

HORRIBLE HISTORIES

On Thursday 11th April, the children in Year 2 and the Key Stage 2 children will be visiting Theatre Severn to watch The Terrible Tudors. They will be travelling to this event by school minibus with Mrs Manley, Mrs Wilson, Mrs Child and Miss Carter. Lunchtime arrangements: children can order a lunch as normal. This will be provided on their return at 1.00pm

SCHOOL MEALS

After the Easter break, Telford and Wrekin School Catering Service will be providing our school meals. The meals will be cooked in our school kitchen. The children will be able to order their meal each day. Details to follow. Thank you to Dawn and Jennifer Allison who have provided us with school meals in the absence of our school chef. Please see attached letter regarding meal choices for the last week of half term. Sorry to have to ask you to make your choices again.

INTERACTIVE SCREENS

On Tuesday 9th April, we will be installing new interactive screens into Class 2 and the school hall. Thank you to the ‘Friends’ who are part-funding this up-to-date technology.

SWIMMING LESSONS
