Sports Day

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are delighted to be able to run Sports Day again this year without the disruption of Covid. You will have already been given dates though our ‘Key Dates’ information, but I just want to remind everyone now of the dates again and relay some organisational points.

Year 5/6                     Monday 20th  June             1.15-3.00pm

Reception                Tuesday 21st June             9.00-10.20am

Year 3/4                     Tuesday 21st June             1.15-3:00pm

Year 1/2                     Wednesday 22nd June      1.15-3.00pm

We have a few reserve dates up our sleeve, but hope that the weather will be kind. We will update you if we have to pull on our reserve dates.

We are running the event in ‘Houses’. The children will run for either Wenlock, Ironbridge, Severn or Wrekin.

Children will undoubtedly tell you which house they are in.

The sports day will be carried out on the new Astro football pitch.  We will open the gate by Mrs Thomas’ classroom 10 minutes before each event starts. Children will be based on the side of the Astro that backs onto the Wrekin Way path. We ask parents to take up a spectator spot on the opposite side (where the Oak tree is) or up on the bank. Staff will direct you! Please make sure you use the toilet before coming to sports day, as we will not be able to offer toilet facilities to parents.

Due to the time the children will be outside, could you please ensure that your child has applied sun cream before coming to school and that they bring a hat with them.  Drinks will be provided for them at various stages but a water bottle on sports day is a must.

It is the first time we have run a sports day on the new Astro so please bear with us. Mr Birch, Miss Jones, and the team have worked hard in making sure it runs smoothly, with of course the main driver being that all children have fun!

Yours sincerely,

Miss Cook

Ice Pops for sale Friday 17th June

Following on from the successful selling of the ice pops, the children from School Parliament have organised another sale this Friday, 20p per ice pop which we are limited to one ice pop per child.

I would like to thank the School Parliament members  involved, who have taken time to organise these events. The money raised goes towards the Healthy Lifestyle fund, which helps pay towards the wonderful activities the children at  Newdale  have been able to enjoy this week.

Thank you for your support.

Homework blog update

Just a quick update regarding the Newdale website’s homework blog. After investigating the issue further, there is an issue where the website hasn’t been loading correctly now which has effected the network. The password provided is correct so apologies to anybody who is struggling to upload. We have logged the error with the website provider and await further clarification.

Apologies over any confusion with this.

Many thanks,

Miss Jones
