In addition to the usual clubs we will be offering the children in Year 3, 4 & 5 the chance to be in the school choir. The club will run on a Thursday after school. The cost of the club is £15 which will contribute towards the club and the cost of the final concert. The choir will be learning to sing a range of songs so that they can perform in the Young Voices concert at Sheffield Arena on 8th January.
This is an amazing opportunity for the children and is only made possible by the time given by the teachers running the club. We ask that you make a commitment that your child will attend all the after school session and will be allowed to attend the concert in January.
Over the past few weeks, visitors from “The Works Skatepark” in Leeds have attended the school to provide cycling lessons to pupils in Year 2. Cycling is a valuable life skill, it is an enjoyable form of exercise and is environmentally friendly. To continue to encourage cycling amongst pupils, we invited the Bradford Capital of Cycling and the Margaret Carey Foundation into school to hold a bike sale. They repair old, unwanted bikes and sell them at a discounted price to people in the local community. Children’s bikes were on sale for between £10 and £30. The Bike sale proved extremely popular, selling all their bikes within minutes.
The school took part in two football tournaments, the first being the Bradford west under 11 world cup festival and the second being the Bradford west NPT safer community trophy.
Two teams were entered into the Bradford west under 11 world cup festival. Out of 16 teams, both teams reached the final with Mr Riley’s team winning on penalties.
Nuts and peanuts can cause allergic reactions, which are sometimes severe. A severe reaction to nuts is called anaphylaxis and can be life-threatening. In order to keep all our children safe, Margaret McMillan is a NUT FREE ZONE. Please do not send your children with any nut products.
Year 2 are fundraising to try and bring down the cost of our seaside trip in July. Sunrise Supermarket have kindly donated two baskets of Cadbury’s Creme Eggs which we are going to raffle in the last assembly of the term to children in KS1. If you would like to buy a raffle ticket please send your child to school with 50p and they can purchase a ticket from a Year 2 representative at playtime.
Year 3 and 4 are going to the Alhambra Theatre on Friday 12th January to watch the pantomime Cinderella. We have a small number of unallocated tickets and would therefore like to offer these to Year 5 pupils. The cost of the trip should be £14 per child but we have been able to subsidise the cost by £4.00 through our fundraising efforts. This will bring the cost down to £10.00. This is to cover coach costs, refreshments and entrance fees. We will be leaving school at 12:15pm and will be back at school at approximately 4pm.
PAYMENT MAY ONLY BE MADE IN CASH AT THE OFFICE ON A FIRST-COME FIRST-SERVED BASIS.
From January, school dinner prices will increase to £1.70 per day for children in years 3-6. All children in Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 will still receive FREE school meals.
