Final Day of Year 3 Fun

Dear All

Just a quick note about arrangements for Monday.

3C have been told they can come into school wearing their PE kit all day if they want.

3H and 3B should come into school wearing their school uniform.

We are really looking forward to our final day together.

Production Photos

All production photos are now up in the office area to view. There are whole cast photos, photos of the children in their performance groups, photos of the performance in action and also friendship group photos.

The children should have brought home order forms but there are spares in the office also.

As we would like to get these ordered so they will be ready by Monday, the cut off to order these is tomorrow at 4pm. If you are attending the Leavers’ Service at 10am, you may want to take the opportunity before or after to view and order the photos.

May we take this opportunity to thank Mrs O’Reilly who was our superb photographer for the second year running – we appreciate all your help and expertise.


Year R end of term updates

We are coming to the end of a fantastic first year in your children’s journey at St Marks. They have matured, made new friends and have made such a great amount of progress.

We hope you enjoyed looking at their books and art work at the open afternoon yesterday.

PE kits will come home today and not be required again this term.

Year 6 Buddy picnic – all children will require a packed lunch from home on Thursday to eat with their buddy.

Plastic bag – please provide your child with a named carrier bag on Friday to bring home art work and some school books. Other books and learning journeys will remain in school until October half term when they will then come home.

Reading books and Library books are being collected in this week ready for an audit of school books. Please ensure these are brought into school as soon as possible.

Thank you for all your support over the year. Enjoy the summer holidays.

Year 2 – Reminder

Don’t forget we are inviting the children to bring 1 Adult to school Friday between 2pm-3pm for our;

Parents will help their child to ‘sew’ a journey. You don’t need to know how to sew a button as all will be explained. You will then take part in a Geography quiz to end our topic.

Due to space we are limited to 1 adult per child. Please arrive and wait in church foyer until we invite you in to join us in the main hall. Please do let your child’s class teacher know if you are unable to attend so arrangements can be made.

Thank you, we look forward to sharing the afternoon with you on Friday.

Year 6 Photos

As you may be aware, Snappers photographers were in school a couple of weeks ago and took individual, class and a year group photo of our Year 6 pupils. The children were sent home with a code for their class photo which could be purchased.

The individual and year group photo is complimentary and will be sent home this week in a special Leavers’ Yearbook.

We hope this clarifies any confusion.


Performance Tickets

Just to let parents, friends and family know, we have sold out of tickets for the evening performances of Peter Pan but still have plenty available for Wednesday afternoon at 2.00pm.


Buddy Picnic

If any children require a packed lunch for the buddy picnic this Thursday 19th July, please let the office know by the end of Tuesday.

Year 4 Trip


Our trip has finally arrived! Tomorrow we will be leaving school at 9am prompt so it is very important that all children are in school for register at 8:45 am.

We will be based in woodland so your child must wear/bring

  • A hat and sunglasses.
  • Have a layer of sun cream applied, please note, most of the day is under tree canopy but sun cream is still essential.
  • Water bottle that can be refilled at fountain points if needed.
  • Closed toed shoes with good grips, we suggest trainers.
  • Long trousers because they will be walking in long grass and collecting wood in the woodland area.
  • Light weight long sleeved top or something they can put on over a short sleeved t-shirt when we are in the forest collecting wood. This will reduce any accidental scratches from bark if they brush past.
  • Lunch in a bag or box inside a bag that they can carry. We suggest a small back pack as we will be moving across a large site and children will need their water. All waste is to be recycled at the centre and any non-recyclable rubbish brought back to school where we will dispose of it at the end of the day.
  • NO NUTS please as we have children and staff with nut allergies.
  • Please do not send chocolate in lunch bags because children will keep their bags with them outside and it will melt.
  • Wellies and waterproofs if the weather changes, will send an email in the morning advising you of any adverse weather reports.


We are all looking forward to the trip. Thank you all again for your continued support.

The Year 4 Team.
