CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19): Information for parents; we have sent a letter out via the children which has been published by Dudley Health Protection Team. Whilst it is currently unlikely that you or your child will catch the coronavirus in the Dudley borough, it is important to read through the content of the letter, thank-you.
It has been brought to our attention that there are a number of children on bikes and scooters weaving in between parked vehicles and not stopping to look when crossing roads. This kind of behaviour is obviously extremely hazardous and we really need parental support to help ensure our children are kept safe on their bikes. Could we ask all parents to reinforce all elements of road-safety and also remind all those that travel to and from school on a bike that they should be wearing a cycle helmet.
Reading is incredibly important to us as Crestwood Park, and as promised our weekly newsletters will now be featuring a book review written by one of our wonderful children.
Here is the first one...
'I recommend Beastquest; Krokol, the Father of Fear' because it is exciting when the villain Ria, controls Tom, the hero and turns him into Krokol. Luckily, Elenna, Tom’s friend and Daltec, the wizard, try to save him.
Recommended by Elliott in Year 4.
New After-School Club announced...
Please look out for letters next week detailing Mr Barnett's new and exciting after-school club "Invasion Games". This fun and energetic club will commence on Tuesday 10th March, so please keep your eyes peeled and return the slip and money to the school office as soon as possible, thank-you.
Also, running club is back up and running (literally)! Should you wish to join the team, please call in to the office to get a letter, thank-you.
Parent Governor Appointed
We are delighted to announce that we have appointed Mrs Natalie Turner as our new parent governor, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome her to the team.
KS2 Craft Club
Just a reminder that Mrs Skidmore's fabulous KS2 Craft Club starts after school on Monday 2nd March from 3:20pm - 4:30pm. Please refer to the letters sent out via the children for further information. The cost of the club is £1 per child, thank-you.
World Book "Dress-Up" Day - 5th March
We are celebrating this day with various fun and exciting activities - the children will also get the opportunity to share their favourite stories. Children are invited to dress-up as a character from their favourite book (please ensure they wear suitable footwear and bring a coat). If they choose not to dress up, children need to come to school in their usual school uniform. Thank-you.
Fitness Friday postponed for 6th March
Due to the whole school attending the trip to the Black Country Museum on Friday 6th, Mr Barnett will not be running the Fitness Friday session.
Whole school visit to The Black Country Museum
In preparation for next Friday (6th March), here is just a little reminder of what the children will need to wear/bring for the school trip...please ensure your children wear full school uniform including school shoes and water-proof coat. Children will also need to bring their lunch including a drink - no glass bottles please. Thank-you for your support - we are really looking forward to taking all the children on this trip. We are sure it will be very memorable for all and hope the children come back with plenty of interesting facts about their local area and their heritage.
We are delighted to inform you that our magnificent "Mile-Track" installation will now commence 1 week early on the 9th March. We are extremely excited about this and will continue to keep you updated on its progress.
Would you like to learn a musical instrument?
You are invited to the Dudley Performing Arts open evening on Thursday 12th March for students interested in learning a musical instrument, you are welcome to drop in any time between 18:30 – 20:00. By going along you can try a range of instruments, find out about singing lessons, meet the teachers and ask any questions you have. Learning a musical instrument is a great thing to do and will open up all sorts of opportunities for children. Our school is committed to providing opportunities for children to get involved in music and we hope that you are able to go along. The evening will take place at Netherton Arts Centre, Northfield Road, Netherton DY2 9ER.
Stories and articles for our School Magazine - issue 2
Calling all budding reporters and writers for our next school Magazine...we are seeking the assistance of our fabulous children to provide juicy articles, stories or photographs for our next publication (issue date to be confirmed), which can include the following...
Drawings, art-work, photo's, fiction and non-fiction writing or a report on a subject that interests them (they may wish to conduct an interview with someone), achievements, family news, fun-facts and even quizzes and puzzles - which I am sure will capture the interests of staff too.
You can either hand items to the class teacher (this can be written) or via email to Mrs Redfern - email@example.com.
Book Fair success
Due to the success of the Book Fair held during Parents' Evening, we will be able to buy a really lovely selection of new books for the school, thank-you so much for your support.
