Dear Parents,

Whole School ‘Wizard of Oz’ Performance

Everyone enjoyed a wonderful performance and experienced ‘live theatre’. Class 4 also took part in a stagecraft workshop. Thank you to Friends of School for funding this.

Our Christian value –Respect

This week we have thought about respect for others through the New Testament  stories of the parables. In the parable of the two builders we learnt how important it is to make sure a job is well done. The parable of the lost sheep helped us to know that everyone is important and valued. In the parable of the great feast we reflected on including everyone.

Harvest Festival Service in St Mary’s Church, Bolton-on-Swale at 2pm on Friday 21st

October followed by refreshments in the school hall

Everyone is invited to join us for our school Harvest Festival service which will be led by

the children in St Mary’s Church. After the service the children will walk back to school

and whilst classes get ready for home time, refreshments will be served in the Hall by

Friends of the School.

There will be no Special Mentions Assembly next Friday 21st October

As a farming community and Church School we are giving thanks for all that we receive and we are also raising awareness with the children of the needs of others less fortunate in our own community and more globally.

We are  raising money for the charity WorkAid

We are supporting WorkAid‘ a charity which collects and repairs tools to send to East

Africa where training with these tools helps to transform the lives of families.  School

Council are asking the children to pay £1 to enter their ‘Scarecrow ‘competition. The

children have instructions with their homework books. Please return your paper plate

scarecrow design by next Wednesday 19th October with your £1donation to WorkAid.

Harvest gifts of fruit, vegetables and tins

These can be brought into school next week and will be made into Harvest baskets to

distribute to people you nominate in the local community. Other items will be taken to

local food banks. Please nominate people using the slip below. Spare boxes to make

up our baskets would be appreciated.
