Kirk Fenton News
18th March 2022
Dear Parents and Carers,
It has been lovely to see the children enjoying the sunshine this week and to see so many signs of Spring.
There has been lots of amazing science going on at Kirk Fenton this week as we have celebrated British Science Week. It has been a joy to see the enthusiasm and passion on display as the children have found out about the world around them. We definitely have some future scientists in the making.
We were delighted that our Y6 children, after a year missed to the pandemic, were able to take part in NYCC Bikeability training course. They had a fantastic time learning these key life skills of staying safe on the roads. The instructors were very complimentary about their mature attitude.
We are overwhelmed with your generosity in donating money and goods for the Ukraine appeal. The children looked fabulous today in their yellow and blue and showed great understanding for this cause. Money is still coming in so we will confirm the total next week. Thank you to everyone for your support.
Thank you to Friends for organising bag2school and for all the bags brought in. We are very appreciative of the work Friends do to raise valuable funds for our school.
Have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Becca Cameron

We hope you enjoyed all the books you read!
Thank you too for the Bags 2 School donations today. A nice healthy pile of bags was gratefully received and we have raised £84.
We are working on a “Yes” day where children will be able to do things like crazy hair, face paint, non uniform and other fun things on the last day of this term (8th April). So pop that in the diary and we’ll send more details once the list of things that are allowed are agreed by the head girl and boy!
To celebrate the Jubilee, Friends will be coordinating a commemorative printed tea towel where the children can draw themselves and all the images will be printed - we’ll share details of how to pre-order these in the coming weeks. Ideal keepsakes or presents for family! So don’t be shy in ordering!
Thanks again from all at Friends of Kirk Fenton - your support is very much appreciated
