What an action packed term it has been for all our pupils this term! Willow weaving, county sports competitions, Young Voices, secondary school visits, charity cake sales and last night's school disco have all played their part in making life at Monkton Park as fun as ever! We celebrated some great achievements with our Monkton Mole awards today too. As ever none of these brilliant opportunities would be available without the commitment and dedication of our staff team. Thank you to all.
Over half term we hope to have some scooter storage added to our KS1 playground (cycle storage is on its way!). Our KS1 children can start to use this from their first day back on Monday 24th February.
We hope you have a wonderful half term!
All clubs will continue after half term.
We are excited to offer 2 new lunchtime clubs after half term. If your child loves singing, or wants to try something new then their energy and enthusiasm are welcome!
Mini-Singers, for Years 1, 2 & 3 will take place on Tuesday Lunchtimes
KS2 Choir, for Years 4, 5 & 6 will take place on Thursday Lunchtimes
Please book a space using the Parents Evening booking site. Bookings open Friday 14th February 2020 at 3pm. It is not first come first served. You will be notified after half term if your child has a place.

World Book Day Information - Thursday 5th March 2020
This year we would like the children to dress up as their favourite character or their favourite book. This can be any book and there is no class theme.
For World Book Day we would also like the children to take part in a Book Exchange where they bring in an old book and swap it for another one. The children will be able to swap their books within their class and with other children in their year group. The teachers will ensure all children who bring in a book get the chance to swap theirs with a suitable alternative!
