Queen's 90th Birthday Celebrations Part 2 - May 2016
Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us so we were unable to have our street party outside as planned. Nevertheless we enjoyed ourselves eating picnic food in the hall served to us by our teachers and support staff.

Times Table Championship 1st February 2016
Sixteen children entered our second fortnightly Times Table Championship which was held on Monday 1st February. At the end of 3 quickfire rounds of 15 questions, 3 pupils scored full marks and could not be separated and so were joint champions.
Congratulations therefore go to Sam Hall and Riley Massen from Year 6 and to James Edgeley from Year 5.

Times Table Championship 1st February 2016

The launch of St Luke's times table championship!

Sixteen children entered our first ever Championship which was held on Monday 18th January. The whole school watched on in awe as Miss Horsbrough began Round 1 with fifteen quick fire multiplications that included a selection of division questions.
Just five children scored 15/15 and moved to Round 2: Josh Hull, Mya Kundi, Milly Briscoe and Sam Murphy from year 6 and Harvey Brankin from year 5.
At the end of Round 2 only one contestant remained: Sam!
However, he had to complete a further, more challenging, set of fifteen questions, to prove he is master of the tables. He did just that and received a special badge to be worn on his lanyard plus five housepoints.
Congratulations to eleven year old Sam Murphy from year 6.

Our Head Boy and Head Girl 2015-16

At the beginning of term we had a vote in year 6 to elect our Head Boy and Girl. Both Georgia and Riley were outright favourites. As their teacher I can wholly agree with the choice made by their peers as Georgia and Riley as these children always work diligently and complete tasks to the highest standard.

Head Boy
Hi I'm Riley; I like to help others and I set an example to the school because I am Head Boy. Being Head Boy I have to talk to our headteacher, Miss Horsbrough and meet with the Governors to discuss how we might improve our school.
Georgia, who is Head Girl, and I are also members of the school council. We are interested in what they are discussing and share our ideas with them.

Head Girl
I set an example for other children in the school by behaving and working to the highest expected standards. Riley and I help others and advise them about different things. I enjoy meeting with Miss Horsbrough to say what is good about St. Luke's and what we can do to make it even better.

Christingle Assembly - 18th December 2015
The final event for this year was the Christingle assembly. Christingle means Christ's light and is a symbol of the Christian faith. The orange represents the world and the candle reminds us of Jesus who was the light of the world. The red ribbon that goes around the world signifies Christ's blood and that he died for us. The cocktail sticks represent the four corners of the world and the sweets signify God's gifts to us including kindness and love.

Christmas Party - December 2015
Children had a wonderful time at the Christmas party; they came either dressed in their finery or with a Christmas theme including Santa and Mrs Claus. They played party games such as pass the parcel and danced in the hall.

Children in Need Day 13th November 2015
On Friday 13th November we held a non-uniform day to raise funds for Children in Need. Many children came as superheroes and most staff were villains with everyone making a donation towards the charity! There was also a bun sale.
The day culminated in two discos. Our new DJ was a hit and had most of the children actually dancing!
We raised £368.80 for Children in Need and £128.00 for school funds
It was a super day all around.

Remembrance Day 11th November 2015
On Wednesday 11th November we held our Remembrance Service and observed a two-minute silence. Children in year 6 had studied the poem 'Flanders' Fields' prior to worship and this was read out to the rest of the school.
34 children and 3 adults wore their Scouting and Guiding uniforms. It's fantastic to know that we have so many children involved in these organisations out of school.
