Kirk Fenton News

24th May 2019

Dear Parents / Carers,

This week the weather has been kind to us as pupils from Year 5 and 6 spent a day at a cricket festival, Years 3 and 4 camped on the field and EYFS and Year 1 held the grand opening of their refurbished outdoor areas. I am grateful to everyone who supported and made these events such a success and who gave up their time to create treasured memories for our pupils. The camp, as every year, was amazing and our children showed every one of our four school values: thankfulness, perseverance, respect and at times forgiveness.

Next week is half term and the children return to school on Tuesday 4th June. I hope you have a restful break.

Mrs Karen Williams

Head Teacher

Y3/4 Residential

The sun has shone on us for the last couple of days and Y3 and Y4 have had a great time showing perseverance, acquiring new skills, having lots of fun and even managing a little bit of sleep!

Thank you to everyone involved for great organising and help.

Kwik Cricket

Ten of our Y6s showed great team work and sportsmanship at the annual Kwik Cricket festival at Church Fenton cricket club playing other schools in our cluster. Well done to Charlie, William, Harvey, Isaac, Nicole, Isla, Connor, Charlie, Alice and Fred.
