Mrs Foster’s News  24.05.18

Well done to the girl’s cricket team who won the silver medal in a very close final. What a result for your first competitive match!

 

Something I didn’t post in March but most definitely needs a mention are the number of children who took part in a dance show at the Charter Theatre in Preston with their Dance school Amanda Rogers.  Well done to Beth A, Abi D, Millie DD, Alexa G, Eliza G, Katie G, Zara H, Evie H, Eva L, Holly L, Francesca M, Courtney M, Isabella O, Tilly P, Sophia T and Keira W!  Being the mother of a non-dancing 11 year old, I haven’t experienced the commitment needed in the run up and during a dance show but I watch Dance Moms regularly so I’ve got an idea!  Your dance teacher, and I, are very proud of you all.

 

Thank you to my band of ‘Litter Warriors’ in Year 6 (Linus, Josh, Lilly, Molly, Eleanor and Tilly H ) who delivered an assembly on Monday about the amount of litter on our playing field, mainly left over from snacks and packed lunches.  They came up with a number of great ideas to improve this and have been liaising with our lunchtime staff and Mr Boyd to make sure things are put in place quickly.  Good job!

 

We’ve spent the last two days observing teachers in school and are interviewing for our soon to be vacant positions today.  I’ll let you know the outcome as soon as I can.

 

Don’t forget our term dates for the coming academic year (2018/19) and for 2019/20 are on the school website so make sure you check BEFORE you go about booking any holidays.

 

We are tightening up on the number of children arriving late in the morning.  School doors are open from 8.50 and school starts at 9am.  All children are expected to be in their seats ready for learning at 9am.  The school attendance officer will be in touch with you next half term regarding timekeeping should you be one of our regular late attenders. 

 

Geoff Purcell who is the operations manager for LCC and manages school crossing patrols has asked me to mention the parking on Birch Avenue, near to where June, our crossing patrol, works.  The cars are parking on both sides of the road and so close to June making it very difficult for her to see what is coming down the road.  I know many of these cars belong to All Hallows parents and the message has been passed on to them too, however we need to ensure our children and June are safe.

Geoff has put in a request to the highways department or flashing lights, yellow lines and a visible school crossing so we shall await to see if his request is successful.

 

We come to the end of a long half term and it has been a wonderful seven weeks in school, particularly the last few as we have enjoyed the sunshine.  There’s nothing I love more than the children all being outside and learning in the fresh air.  We’re currently teaching some of the younger children to wash their hands after they’ve applied their suncream as we’ve had some eye rubbing issues this week so if you can support that at home over the holidays we will be really grateful!

 

It’s a funny old two weeks holiday in the Foster household.  Mr F is off to France for the second week with his bestie Mike to ‘check our caravan is ready for towing in summer and to visit some WW1 sites’. And he’s taking the car. So we’ll be enjoying a fortnight in the Costa Del Blackpool and may even go to town on a bus…

Have a wonderful couple of weeks, whatever you are doing.
