What a busy first week back! We hope everyone enjoyed the half-term break and is ready to go for the final half-term of the year. This week it has been lovely to welcome Violet to our junior class, she has had a very settled first week and we hope she will be very happy here at Leck. Welcome Violet and family.
On Tuesday morning just 7 children joined Mrs Mather for Walk2School – we didn’t get the best of the weather. Our next Walk2School will be on Tuesday 18th June. 
Mrs Davison held a parent meeting regarding the Edinburgh residential on Tuesday afternoon – thank you to those parents who could make it. Kit lists and itinerary are coming home with children today if you were unable to attend the meeting.
On Thursday, Mrs Elliott took a team of upper juniors out to the cluster Rounders Tournament at Hornby. As always, our children showed great sportsmanship, worked really well as a team and finished third overall! Well done team, we are all very proud of you!

School Value – our value for this half-term is “goodness”. Assemblies and class worship will be focused on this value and children in school who show goodness will be celebrated. Our school value changes every half-term.

Tower Wood – next Monday the junior class will be visiting Tower Wood Outdoor Centre. This activity centre on the shores of Lake Windermere offers a wide range of both land and water-based activities, perfect for a day’s adventure! There will be no charge for these trips, school will be covering the cost of both transport and instructors. Children should wear their own warm clothes, outdoor shoes or boots and will need a waterproof coat.  Waterproof trousers would also be useful if they have them. They will require a packed lunch. We have a full day planned and will not be back at school until 5.15pm.  An information sheet was sent earlier today. Should anyone have any concerns or queries please let us know.

PE Kit – please can all children remember to return their PE kit. As we are now in the summer months, we will be outside for our PE lessons, so please bring appropriate clothing and footwear. Thank you.

Reception & Nursery – please can all Reception children, and children who attend Nursery on a Monday morning bring in a clean jam jar with lid for an activity on Monday. Thank you.

Eco-Club – Snack & Drink… continues on Tuesday. We are hoping the weather will be nice enough for juice and ice lollies!
Any children wishing to join in should bring in £4.50 in a named envelope to cover to the end of term.

Whole School Photo – Tempest Photography will be in school on Wednesday morning to take our whole school group photo – lets hope the weather is kind for an outside photograph! Please send children with clean uniform, tidy hair and their best smiles!

Dales Museum Friday 14th June – our junior class will be travelling up to Hawes to visit the Dales Museum. A full information sheet is attached.
Thank you to our wonderful PTFA for funding the cost of the coach to make this a free trip for families.
