Whitkirk Primary School Blog
A weekly blog from the Headteacher
Year 6 natural disaster investigators
Believe it or not, next week is the last week of this half term - where did the time go? There are some brilliant events to look forward to. Our PTA have organised the Halloween disco, 'Petrify your Pumpkin' event and the Smarties Challenge. Information on some of these events can be found later on on this newsletter. In addition, we have bike riding courses, house reward afternoon, Indian dancing, a Gruffalo morning and Year 1 trip to Nell Bank too!
I hope everyone has a great weekend and has chance to recharge their batteries before what promises to be an action packed last week of the half term.
We would like to confirm the Parents Evening dates for Autumn Term; these are:
Tuesday 13th November - 3:30 - 6:30pm

compulsory parent permission forms
This form relates to permission for your child to have photos taken, go on local walks etc.
A copy of this form can also be downloaded below.
Please can these be returned to school as a matter of urgency - thank you.
children in need
This falls on the same day as our PTA non uniform day in return for chocolate donations for the Christmas fair.
This will be a super joint event, where we will hopefully see as many children as possible in non uniform and / or spots, with a chocolate donation. If you can spare any money for a Children in Need contribution too; that'd be massively appreciated!
