After-School Clubs ending this week

Don’t forget, with all the activities going on in the run-up to Christmas, our after school clubs will have their last sessions this week (week ending Friday 9th December). New letters for next term’s clubs went out yesterday, so please complete the reply slip if your child would like to join any of the after-school clubs on offer after the Christmas holidays!

Sports Day!


We are pleased to invite you to Lowerplace Sports Day, which will be held on Thursday 14th July. The event will be held on the school field. The timings for the event are as follows:

Class 3b, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6: 9:15am until 12:00pm

Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and classes 3a and 3c: 1:15pm until 3:00pm

We will endeavour to proceed with the games come rain or shine. If we are lucky enough to have a sunny day, please ensure your child has suitable protection from the sun, including a hat, sun lotion and water. As always, please ensure that your child has the appropriate PE kit with them for the day (white t-shirt, shorts and pumps) as they will be unable to participate if they do not have the correct clothing.

We hope to see you there for this special day!
