Dear Parents/Carers, 

Well Done Dragons! – Amazing performance of Macbeth

Last Friday, Dragons put on their performance of Shakespeare’s Macbeth – streaming live over YouTube! It was a truly magical performance and a great retelling of this play. I was incredibly impressed and I know that all the families that watched from home, thoroughly enjoyed the production. Well done, Dragons!

Christmas Raffle

We are still selling tickets for our Christmas raffle until Friday morning.  Tickets are 20p each or 5 for £1.  Prizes include hampers of toiletries and treats, vouchers for local restaurants, fantastic remote control racing trucks, games and other treats! Winners will be announced in our Christmas assembly on Friday.

Christmas Jumper Day + Christmas Lunch – Thursday

A reminder that tomorrow is our Christmas lunch and it is also our Christmas jumper day. If your child does not have a Christmas jumper, please do not worry! Some children choose to wear Christmas colours or attach a Christmas decoration or piece of tinsel to their jumper, wear a Christmas hat or just wear non-uniform.

Last Day Friday

On Friday, we will be having a special celebration assembly, giving out awards and certificates and also having parties in class. Children can bring in a drink and snack to have at their party. It will also be a non-uniform day.

Please remember we are closing after lunch - children need to be collected at the following times:

Year 1 + 2 - 12:30pm - Front Playground

Reception and Nursery - 12:45 pm - Front Playground

Year 5 + 6 - 12:30pm – Back Playground

Year 3 + 4 – 12:45pm - Back playground

Welcome to our new Pastoral Lead – Mr Parish

We are really pleased that Mr Parish joined our staff team last week. Mr Parish will be working with children and families throughout school offering support as needed. He will be covering much of the work that Mrs Freeman used to do in school and you may have seen him on the playground recently. Mr Parish has worked as a learning mentor in his previous school where he was a member of the school’s child protection team and supported children with social and emotional difficulties. We’re really pleased that he’s now joined Rosebank and will be an asset to our school!

Reporting Positive Covid cases over the holidays

School is playing a key role in the test and trace system and ensuring that anyone in school who has been a close    contact to someone who tests positive for Covid, is notified. This will continue to be the case for the first week of the holidays. It is important that if your child develops symptoms of Covid at the start of the holidays (Saturday or   Sunday) and then tests positive, you must notify school and we can then notify anyone who may have been a close contact at the end of term.

 

Please use this email address. It will be checked every day covidresults@rosebank.leeds.sch.uk

 

 

Best wishes 

 Miss Alice Smith, Headteacher
