The children in the Foundation Stage would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all the people who have helped raised money for their easel. The easel has been delivered this week and the children are thoroughly enjoying using it so far.

Foundation Stage Raffle Thank you for buying raffle tickets from our Foundation Stage. The following people have still not claimed their prize: Robert Feeney and Corey Gerrard.

Uniform Orders for 2013/14 Order forms for new uniform are now available from the office. We have a small selection of uniform in stock. If we have not got the uniform in they will take 2 – 4 weeks once ordered with the supplier.

Is your child in Y6 this September? They will have a chance to go on a 3 day residential outward bound trip to Todmorden. All the information has been sent out recently. Please contact the school office and on Monday 10th May to advise school if you do or do not want your child to attend. Unfortunately as there have only been a few children signed up to this so far it may have to be cancelled if we don’t get any more interest. It would be very useful if the school is told either way. Thank you.

We have had a marathon week of chess this week at Bishop Martin! First on Wednesday a very inexperienced (but talented!) team took on St Edmunds. Unfortunately we lost that match but last night the same team took on Delphside and the improvement was clear! We drew that match 88. Special mention to Che (Y4) and Phillip (Y4) who both won their games with checkmate! As it stands so far we have won one, drawn one and lost two so bring on the next match! Well done Bishop Martin!

Attendance figures for week ending 3rd May 2013. Congratulations to the Penguins on achieving 97.9%

We would like to wish all our Year 6 children good luck in their SATs tests next week!
