Star Learners - 16 March 2018

See all of this week's Star Learners ...

Egg Technology Competition

We're eggstatic to announce that the annual 'Egg Technology' competition is due to take place on
Thursday 29th March.

The competition is open to all children from Foundation Stage 1 - Year 6. We would like the children to be as creative as possible. This year we are leaving the theme open to your own imagination...we can't wait to see the results.

The winners of each year group will win an Easter Egg and all those taking part will receive a small chocolate egg.

Please bring your entries to the designated tables outside the hall on the day.

Y2 residential visit to Hollowford

Having spoken to the Hollowford Centre we have jointly taken the decision to postpone Monday's visit. Conditions in Castleton are difficult and the Met Office are forecasting more snow over the weekend. Whilst I realise that this will be disappointing for all involved, I'm sure you'll understand that the children's safety must come first.

We are currently in discussion with the Hollowford Centre to attempt to find another date. Should this not be possible, we will of course refund all families the full cost of the visit.

Apologies for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause, I can assure you that we will work extremely hard to find an alternative date.

UPDATE: the Y2 trip to Hollowford has been re-booked to Weds 25th and Thurs 26th April 2018. All the information regarding the trip is still the same it is just the dates that have changed.

Thanks for your understanding and support.

Dave Smith, Headteacher at Woodthorpe Community Primary School.
