Kirk Fenton News
20th September 2019
Dear Parents / Carers,
Yet another busy week in school. The Year 2 Hazel class had a fantastic visit to The Deep and showed they were ready, respectful and safe when away from the school. The staff were very proud of them.
KS2 took part in a cross country event and all showed a great deal of resilience and our value of perseverance.
To finish the week off, Selby Times have been in to take a new starters picture and the reception children proudly showed off their fabulous outside area.
Have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Emma Bembridge

Have you got questions about faith? Would you like a place to eat cake and discuss these?
St. Mary’s Kirk Fenton will be running the Alpha course from Monday 23rd September. Alpha will run every Monday evening for around 10 weeks (not including the half-term holiday) at Kirk Fenton Primary School, 7.30pm – 9.30pm.
Alpha is a series of sessions which explore the basics of the Christian faith. Session titles include “Who is Jesus?”, “How can I have faith?” and “Why and how do I pray?” and the sessions are suitable for everyone. The session starts with pudding / cakes, everyone listens to a brief talk and then you split into groups for a discussion. This is a great way to explore anything that you want to – no subject is out of bounds and you can ask anything you want.
If that wasn’t enough of a draw, Alpha will be launched by Warren Furman! Warren was Ace in the amazing 1990s ITV show Gladiators. If you’re not sure about committing, feel free to pop along to the first one on 23rd September and see what you think.
If you want to come along, contact Kate Biddlestone on 07403436160 so that we can make sure there’s enough cake…
