Dear Parents and Carers

 

Year 2 SATs

 

A reminder for parents and carers of children in Year 2 (all the Swallows and some of the Kingfishers) that this week is SATs week. Please make sure your child is well-rested and gets plenty of sleep each night.

 

Parent Support Group

 

The Mental Health Support Team in Blackburn with Darwen are pleased to be able to offer a Parent Support Group. The group will be a chance to explore topics related to mental health and wellbeing, plus a chance to speak to others. There will be no pressure to participate unless you feel comfortable, and all feedback is welcome.

 

This month’s topic is ‘sleep’ and the session will be taking place on Wednesday 25th May, 6.00 – 7.00pm, via Microsoft Teams.

 

Please email emma.jackson@elht.nhs.uk to receive a link to the meeting.

 

A Special Invitation to join Blackburn with Darwen Music Centre

 

Bolton Music Service have some spaces available at our Soundtracks music sessions on Friday evening and Saturday morning in Blackburn with Darwen. We are offering free ‘try out’ sessions to children and young people between the ages of 10 – 16. This is a low-cost opportunity to learn a musical instrument, rehearse in a group with others and to learn to create your own music.

 

Soundtracks is a group workshop session for any young musician or for young people who would like the opportunity to learn. The sessions are weekly during term time and take place at Kaleidoscope Youth Centre, Lindisfarne Avenue, Blackburn BB2 3EH on Friday evenings from 6pm – 8pm and Saturday mornings from 9.00 – 11.00am. We have sole use of the building and the workshops are directed teachers with Bolton Music Service.

 

Learning to play in a group workshop is great fun - you will make new friends, make progress on your instrument, have the opportunity to try out different instruments and take part in performances.

 

We are offering a block of 4 ‘try out’ Soundtracks sessions free of charge and you can start at any point this term. We finish for the summer on Saturday 16th July so you will need to fit them in before then!

 

If you would like to continue with the group after these 4 sessions (I hope you will) you will need to register and agree to pay a monthly membership charge of £15 (less than £4 per week).

 

To book your place on our ‘try-out’ sessions please contact stephen.bolton@bolton.gov.uk giving your:

 

  • Full name
  • Age
  • School
  • Contact number of parent/carer

 

It is very important that you book your place before attending as places are limited. We may not be able to offer you a ‘try-out’ session if you do not reserve your place in advance.

 

If you have any further questions please contact Bolton Music Service on 01204 333533,

 

Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

 

This is a final reminder about ordering the Platinum Jubilee school lunch which will be served on Friday 27th May, the last day before the half term break. Children will enjoy a sandwich of their choice, a rice crispy cake, crisps, fruit and a drink in a cardboard Jubilee Lunchbox. This lunch is available to order on the Teachers 2Parents EduSpot app.  The deadline for ordering is this Wednesday 18th May.

 

School Meals – Online Ordering System

 

For all children who have school meals (including children in the Robins, Woodpeckers, Kingfishers and Swallows who have a Universal Infant Free School Meal), please make sure that for meals served week commencing 23rd May you order by Wednesday 18th May. This includes Fab Friday meals.

 

Please remember that when ordering meals, even if you do not pay for school meals, once you have made your meal choices you should hit the plus button, then go to your basket (top right hand corner) and hit ‘Pay’. This saves all your choices.
