Whitkirk Primary School Blog
A weekly blog from the Headteacher
Year 2 Florence Nightingale fact finding
It has been a lovely week in school and finishing the week today with our Children in Need non-uniform day was a lovely way to round the week off.
Thanks ever so much to all of those parents and carers who attended this Tuesday's Parents Evenings. We look forward to welcoming many of you to next Wednesday's Parents Evenings too.
Next week we have some scooter training for Year 5 children, which promises to be a really valuable experience for them. On Friday, we have flu immunisations for children in Reception - Year 5. We have a guest from the Woodland Trust visiting us to lead the assembly on Monday and on Friday we are scheduled to have our Christmas tree delivered - how exciting!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend - I will see you all next week.
The Parents Evening dates for Autumn Term continue next week:
Wednesday 21st November - 3:30 - 6:30pm
Letters with reply slips have already been distributed. If you require another copy, please let your child's class teacher know.
For those parents / carers who haven't already applied for the flu vaccination; It's not too late to request an immunisation for your child. The consent form can be downloaded by clicking the link below or you can collect one from the school office.
This must be returned back to the school office by Monday 19th November.
Red kite welcome cake!
It has become something of a tradition, in the Red Kite Learning Trust, to provide a little treat to staff as they join the partnership. The cakes are produced by Red Kite chefs who are really proud and pleased to be able to help Whitkirk celebrate their arrival as part of the Trust.
The Red Kite CEO, Richard Sheriff, came into school to present this on Thursday; suffice to say, it was all gone by Friday!
