Kirk Fenton News

6th March 2020

Dear Parents / Carers,


This week it has been wonderful to see the children so engaged in their learning. A group of Year 6 children worked hard in cold weather to learn how to ride their bikes safely on the local roads. They showed great perseverance and really lived our school rules - Ready, Respectful and Safe. I heard lovely things from their instructors about how they conducted themselves and represented Kirk Fenton so well done to them.

On Thursday the whole school celebrated World Book Day, and what a great day it was! There were some wonderful costumes and the enthusiasm for reading and books was amazing. Mrs Cameron led the assembly with the teachers telling the story of 'The Day the Crayons Quit' and each child had the opportunity to take part in reading and storytelling activities in their classroom. Research has shown over and over again how important reading for pleasure is to both academic achievement and also mental health so please do take the time to listen to your child read but importantly also to read to them so that they can hear the rich language that a book provides.


Have a lovely weekend,


Mrs Karen Williams

Head Teacher
