"We are all friends and together we succeed"


Dear Parents/Carers, 

 This week’s news:

 KS1 Reward to Ice Scoop Gelato

As we know, reading is incredibly important to develop writing, language, ideas and creativity, so it always a pleasure to reward those avid readers in school with a trip to Ice Scoop Gelato. Pupils in key stage one who completed Leeds Library’s Summer Reading Challenge were escorted by Miss Smith and Miss Wyman to have an ice cream on us to celebrate their efforts over the six week holidays. There were nine children in total, and I know they enjoyed it as much as the books they’d read.

Shakespeare Festival at Leeds Carriageworks

Wow. What an amazing night! Our Rosebank Dragon class represented the school fantastically as they performed their take on Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ on Tuesday. Thank you to all parents/carers who supported the children with learning lines, cheering them from the audience and collecting them at the late finishing hour. It was worth the effort as these Year 6 pupils excelled in their parts. Miss Chippendale’s interpretation saw modern music and dancing weaved seamlessly into the plot, and Year 6 actors shone as age held no barriers to their accomplishments. They were energetic, mature and charismatic before hundreds of people. Well done, Dragons; you deserved your applause!

Harvest Festival

Our Harvest Festival gathering for All Hallows church is concluding on Friday. Please can all donations be handed in by then. Every gift goes to a person in need. Thank you.

 Friday Bun Sale

As you may have noticed recently, buns are being sold by parents of Rosebank Primary children to raise funds for the playing areas around the school building. Every penny and pound earned is being stored for the redevelopment of playgrounds, and the support received from everyone who buys a bun, or donates them for sale, is greatly appreciated. Please keep contributing to their efforts as your children are the ones who will ultimately benefit. Thank you.

 Halloween Disco

Thank you to the Parent’s Group at Rosebank for arranging a Halloween Disco on Thursday 25th October. Children can choose to come to school in a costume that day, with a £1 donation per family – whether children stay for the disco or not. The disco will begin at 3:15pm, and end at 5pm and is free – no tickets needed. Food will be sold on the night, ranging in price from 20p-50p – please can any donations of food be brought on the day; it will be much appreciated. There will also be competitions for best dressed and carved pumpkins – please bring your entries to the school on the day. All money raised will go towards the playground funds that parents are working on for our children. So why not join us in your scariest costume for a devilishly fun night that promises to be even better than last year’s success.

 Best wishes,

 Mr Howitt, Head of School
