We have had a busy day of football. This morning our Year 2 pupils took part in a Football for Fun session at Stanley Park, learning lots of new football skills.

This afternoon we entered 3 teams into the Level 2 Football tournament. All of the children were a credit to Monkton Park.

Our girls team played brilliantly beating all of the other girls team and competing well against the boys teams.

Both our boys teams played equally as well, representing the school brilliantly. Well done to everyone involved!

Photos and reports to follow next week........

Book Fair

On Wednesday 20th November we will be holding a Scholastic Book fair. The children will be visiting the fair during the school day, it will also be open after school 3pm to 3.30pm. There will a huge selection of books for all ages and all of the books will be half price!

The books can be paid for using Cash, Credit/Debit Card or by Book Fair Gift Voucher.

Book Fair Gift Vouchers are the simple, secure way to ensure your child gets the books they want when the Book Fair arrives and saves them bring cash to school.

Even better, you’ll get an extra 20% for free when you buy online – that means you’ll get

a £6 voucher for only £5,

a £12 voucher for only £10,

a £30 voucher for only £25 and so on.

Once a purchase has been made, you will receive the voucher in an email which can be printed and given to your child – much safer to carry than cash!

You can buy and print off the vouchers from the scholastic website www.bookfairs.scholastic.co.uk/gift-vouchers
