Hello Visitor,


A picture of our fabulous Gymnasts at a recent cluster event.

The Red Robbins had the highest number of house points. (2440) Well done!

Welcome back to everyone.

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter break with your families and are ready for Term 5.

The classteachers will send home the new Curriculum Newsletters on Friday 28th April so you can continue to support your child with their learning.

Our core value this term is PERSEVERANCE.  

This will be a particularly busy term as Year Two and Year Six will be taking national statutory tests. The timetable for Year Six is below, but Year Two is more flexible and Mrs Ellingham will make the sessions as normal as possible and administer the tests according to her own timetable and in smaller groups. The pupils in Year One will also have a phonics screening, but this will just seem like our regular six weekly assessments, so will seem very normal for our pupils.

P.T.F.A Messages

Thank you for great Treat Shop today!

We are already planning the Summer Fete (Saturday 24th June.)

If you work for a generous company, perhaps you could ask them if they could possibly donate a raffle prize?

The donations are acknowledged in the Lyncrest Fete Programme and it would be amazing if we could get the prizes nice and early this year. Please could you try? It doesn’t need to be a big prize; a large number of smaller prizes will still make a great raffle!

Thank you for your support.
