ELLINGHAM SCHOOL NEWS
EXCELLENT START TO THE HALF-TERM
We started the term focused on our value of Excellence and the children have been keen to demonstrate their excellent learning and excellent behaviour in class and around the school. They have made us all very proud with their positive attitudes.
In keeping with this value of Excellence is the announcement of a visit in two weeks time of Paralympian Kylie Grimes. She won a Gold medal in Tokyo 2020 as part of the Team GB wheelchair rugby team. Children will have the opportunity to take part in a fitness circuit with Kylie after the assembly on Thursday 16th November so need to come in their PE kits.
We will be raising funds that will contribute to the costs sports event and sports equipment for the school. Children will receive thank you gifts for the money that they raise.
Raise £5 or more: a sheet of stickers, plus a blue Sports for Schools wristband
Raise £15 or more: all of the above, plus a red wristband with Kylie Grimes’s signature
Raise £30 or more: all of the above, plus a signed Kylie Grimes poster
On Thursday 16th November, Kylie Grimes will be visiting to deliver an exciting sponsored fitness challenge to raise money for Sports for Schools. This week we learnt about her inspiring story and reflected on the different ways she lives out our values. You can learn all about Kylie here. https://sportsforschools.org/athletes/kylie-grimes/
Friends of Ellingham Uniform Sale - Request for volunteers
Next Tuesday and Wednesday, during the parental consultations, the Friends of Ellingham will be holding a second-hand uniform sale in the main reception area. It will be a good opportunity to stock up on extra items, saving you money and adding to the amazing work of the Friends of Ellingham by raising funds to benefit our children.
We only have volunteers to run it from 4.30 onwards so, in order for as many parents as possible to take advantage of it, they need helpers to run it from 3.30 – 4.30. If you are able to offer even 20 – 30 minutes, perhaps fitting it around your own consultation time, please let the school office know as soon as possible. email@example.com
