WEEKLY BULLETIN - 13th July 2018


Dear Parents,

The end of term is fast approaching now, and we have so much to be proud of, and still lots to look forward to next week. I hope this is provides your ‘need to know’ guide to the week ahead.

Stray FM Breakfast Show broadcast LIVE from Roecliffe on Friday 20th July
On Friday 20th July - next week (last day of term), Stray FM are coming to Roecliffe to broadcast their breakfast show from our very own school hall! A leaflet from Stray FM is coming home today (attached to this Bulletin), with reminders about the timings. If you would like to join us and be live on air, children should aim to arrive at school from 7.15am. I realise this is early, but we will be basically broadcasting live on air from 7.30-9.00am! The children who are here will be reading the weather, news reports, spot features, chats and quizzes. It’s going to be lots of fun!! As it’s radio, they will be streaming live on air but also via twitter and through their social media channels too (Facebook etc). If you do not wish your child to be a part of the marketing then please let us know – they can still be part of the morning but we’ll make sure they are out of shot of video and photographs. If this is the case, then please let us know beforehand. If you want to be involved, please be here from 7.15am. Roboodles have very kindly offered to run a ‘Breakfast Show Breakfast’ – some toast and juice for the children. I will send more information out next week, but this gives the general overview.

Class 3 Brighter kind
Class 3 enjoyed their final visit of the year to the local nursing home. Rose, Louisa and all of the staff put on a delightful afternoon of fun, food and games. The children had a lovely time taking part in the egg and spoon race and three legged race too. Even James and Toby’s mums had a go! Class 3 and Miss Clarke would like to say a massive thank you to everyone at Brighterkind for all of their support and time they have given. The current year 3’s and year 2’s are very excited about starting their nursing home adventures again. As part of a holiday homework task, it would be lovely for them to bring in a photo of themselves on holiday so they can share it with their pen pals in September.

Charlie and the Greatest Show
On Tuesday, Class 4 performed for the afternoon matinee and the evening show for families and friends – and what a show it was! The children have talked non-stop about how proud they are of themselves, and quite rightly so! They sang solos, danced, learnt lines, and entertained us for a wonderful celebration of talents, which oozed confidence. I am not alone in being so very proud of Class 4, and want to thank both the children and our amazing audience for making the performance such a lovely evening, filled with laughter and happy memories.

Leavers Service
Everyone is very warmly welcomed to join us for our Leavers’ Service, with the theme of ‘Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow’ – which was the theme from the service at Ripon Cathedral last week. It will be a lovely way to wish all of our leavers all the very best in the future – please join us for what I intend to be a celebration of all that makes Roecliffe such a very special school.

As we approach the end of term there are still a large number of trips and afterschool clubs that we are still awaiting payment for. Mrs Jones will be contacting individuals next week but if parents could logon and settle any outstanding balances this weekend this will really speed up the year-end procedures in the office.

Autumn Term Menu
Our autumn term school lunch menu will be coming home next week. Please can parents return any orders by Thursday so the cook can place her food order ready for our return in September. As mention earlier in the year the cost of a school dinner from 4th September 2018 will be £2.63.

Afterschool Clubs
This week saw all our school based afterschool clubs come to an end and will restart week commencing 10th September. The new After School Clubs letter/sign-up will go home on the first week in September. We have already had confirmation from Zen Warriors, French Club, Sporting Start, STEM Club, Magical Maths and many more.

If you still require childcare next week or the first week in September Roboodles are still open – please Email Roboodles@outlook.com or phone 07881 05552 to request a parent pack and to book any places.
