What's in the news:

I trust that all school families have received all the documentation concering the Parent Governor Election process. Following the receipt of three nominations, a ballot will now run until 12 noon on Thursday 7th October. On behalf of the Governing Body, I extend my thanks to Mrs Eagling, Ms Muggivan and Ms Scott for putting themsleves forward for this important role. Please take the time to vote and return the voting slips by the required date. 

Proofs of individual and family photographs have been sent home. Please follow the guidance to place your orders - either online or returing order envelopes to the school office.

Please can I remind all school families that at the start of the school day the main priority for the staff is to greet the children coming in and setting them off on their learning for the day. I would request that if messges need to be passed on to staff they are done via email to the members of staff directly or to the office email address. Equally, parents can come to the school office to leave a message for members of the school staff. I thank you in advance for your co-operation regarding this request.

As a school and a Governing Body, we prioritise the well-being of all members of the school staff. With this in mind, please can I request that school familes be mindful of when emails are being sent to staff. I would not exepct staff to reply to emails in unsociable hours, with all emails being replied to within an appropriate timeframe. - within 24 hours unless in exceptional circumstances. When phoning school to speak to members of staff, the school policy now is that staff will return a parental call at the end of the school day unless again in exeptional circumstances. I trust that school families support these requests. 

A small number of parents attended the PTA AGM this week and a number of fundraising events have been planned for the forthcomig school year. Please support these events if you possible can. 

What's happened in school this week:

On Wednesday, Tolkien Class enjoyed a fun-filled day with Ruth, who delivered a 'Chemistry with Cabbage' workshop. We were taught how to make our own chemical indicator (cabbage juice!) and we used this to test whether different household chemicals were acid, alkali or neutral. We learned that an acid is the opposite of an alkali, so if you add an acid to an alkali you get a neutral. It was lots of fun testing this out! We also enjoyed adding milk to acids, neutrals, and alkalis, and we quickly realised that it would curdle only in the acids. This 'curdling' is the first stage in digesting protein and one of the reasons why you have acid in your stomach. Ruth also taught us how copper coins like a 2p piece will go shiny in any acid - even lemonade!  Overall, Tolkien Class had a brilliant day and enjoyed undertaking lots of practical experiments.

An array of superheroes and villians invaded school on Monday and took control of Shakespeare Class. This was the launch of their topic, encapsulating a Spread the Happiness day too. It was fascinating hearing why particualar characters had been selected.

Bella and James, from Tolkien Class, undertook dodgeball training at Frodsham Leisure Centre this week and are now our Dodgeball Leaders for the forthcoming  school year. They will now deliver taster sessions to classes across KS2. They both had a grea afternoon learning how to be superb leaders. Thank you Mrs Dorrell - FAVSP SSCo - for training the leaders so well.

Following speeches, our new school council has been established for the coming year and have held their first meeting this week with Miss Fiddler. Various postions have been filled and i have already my first official letter from the councillors outlining their proposals for the year. I know they will be looking forward to school families supporting their ideas in order to raise money to undertake projects in school and for their nominated chariry - Cancer Research UK. Thanking you in advance for your support.
