Monkton Park Newsletter Friday 18th October 2019

It is hard to believe that we are coming rapidly towards the end of term (children are not in on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th October). It has been a term full of successes and we are really proud of how well they have done throughout the whole school.

This week some of our children from Year 3 and 4 took part in a badminton festival at Sheldon. They did brilliantly, were excellent representatives of the school and one of our teams came first.

Well done to Foxes class who did a wonderful class assembly on Thursday. It was full of singing, amazing facts and beautiful art. Well done everyone.
