Kirk Fenton News
30th September 2022
Dear Parents / Carers,
The weather has really turned autumnal this week and we are starting to notice the signs that winter is coming around school. Please ensure that your child comes to school with a coat each day as we spend lots of time outside (even in the rain).
We have had another great week in school and children are now settled well into routines and lessons. Next week, we have parent / teacher consultation evenings on Tuesday and Thursday in school for you to discuss your children with their class teacher. Where possible, these meetings should not be attended by the children as it is not always appropriate to talk about a child whilst the child is sat listening. Where there is no other option, we will have a bench in the hall for children to sit and wait whilst their parent(s) are talking to the teacher; however, their behaviour will remain the responsibility of the parents during that time.
We have our Harvest Festival assembly on Wednesday 5th October and as always will be collecting tins and dried foods for the Selby Foodbank. Please bring any donations to school on Wednesday morning as the foodbank will be collecting them later that day.
Finally, well done to our Y6 footballers who represented Kirk Fenton at an event for local schools yesterday.
Have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Karen Williams

Well done to everyone that has been practising their maths at home this week. It is great to see the number of children increasing each week. Remember that going on Numbots or TT Rockstars for just 10 minutes a few times a week will really help your child to improve their maths skills.
Special congratulations go to Toby M and Lyla K for super Numbots work this week. Our TT Rockstars certificates go to Sam O, Sam C, Scarlett B and Georgia K. Well done everyone!
