We have had a good first week back in school! On Monday, the children were welcomed back to school with our values morning based on ‘Kindness’. Children were able to choose from a range of activities to remind them about self-care and the importance of being kind to themselves.
On Tuesday a group of children from the junior class went to Arkholme to take part in the cluster football tournament. As always, we were super proud of all the children, the effort they put in and their behaviour outside of the classroom, however, upon our return to school we had received an email from a spectator which we wanted to share a little snippet from:
“Leck showed team spirit all day. Never gave up, gave everyone a game and should be more proud than any team who attended today of the people they are, they conceded a few goals and continued to smile and enjoy the day.
They were cartwheeling on the hill, smiling and being kind to each other after games.
They may not have won the tournament, but their team spirit made my day. Your school should be
exceptionally proud of their wonderful ambassadors and the staff.”

As some parents may already be aware, just prior to the Easter break a member of our school family was diagnosed with Leukaemia. Elyica, 3, started nursery with us in September and quickly settled in to school life here with her friends.
Elycia is receiving treatment at Manchester Childrens Hospital, where she is accompanied by her mum, dad and little sister. Family and friends of Elycia’s family have started fundraising to support them during this difficult time. Please find attached a poster for an upcoming coffee morning. Please see Mrs Knapp if you would like any raffle tickets.
We are sure you will join us in sending lots of love and prayers to Elycia during her treatment.
