Kirk Fenton News

16th November 2018

Dear Parents / Carers,

We have had a very busy week this week yet again. Year two have had a great week outdoors learning new skills and the hockey team secured a fabulous third place, representing the school so well. Today we all wore bright colours for Children in Need and I am sure that I heard the first Christmas carols in school earlier in the week, where does the time go?

On that note,next week we will be holding an open morning and afternoon for parents wanting a Reception place for September 2019. Tours around school will be led by our Year six team captains. If you know of anyone who is interested in a place, then please ask them to book a tour at the school office.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Karen Williams

Head Teacher

Winning Team

Well done this week to the Orange Spitfires. Oliver and Leon were proud of their team and delighted to tie on the ribbons.

Y3/4 Quick Sticks Hockey

We were delighted to host this year's quick sticks hockey tournament and welcomed other schools in our cluster. Kirk Fenton narrowly missed going into the final by one on goal difference! Our team showed fantastic perseverance, good sportsmanship and great team spirit. We are very proud of Harry Gilchrist, George Banks, Annie Clark, Charlie Collier, Ewan Pert and Amelie Webster. Thank you so much to our Governor, Shari Williams, for her support all afternoon.

Next Thurs 22nd November is the next Christmas Fair meeting - please come along if you'd like to get involved, alternatively email us if you can volunteer to help. It's at 7pm at the Fenton Flyer in Church Fenton. This will be followed by our standard committee meeting where we will vote on how the money we raise should be spent - everyone is welcome!
