WE NEED YOU!
Egyptian Escape Rooms
This week, Year Three were transported back in time to the pyramids of Ancient Egypt, when they were visited by Clever Cogs Learning and their incredible Puzzle Tombs. The children were astounded when the hall was transformed into a series of Egyptian tombs, each containing complicated puzzles for them to solve and clues to follow. The children had to work together to crack the codes and got much better at it as the morning went on. What a great way to kick-start their Ancient Egypt topic. Here they are trying to recreate the pictures on the walls of the tomb.
Keeping fit and staying healthy
As you’ll all know, keeping fit and staying healthy are incredibly important to us here at Worsthorne Primary. To further increase those opportunities, last half-term we had a running track and an outdoor gym installed on the school playground. We have been waiting for the cushioned floor to be completed around the gym so the children were thrilled to get their first turns on it this week. Last week’s Team Point winners, Earth, were the first to try it out and gave it a big thumbs up. We are looking forward to seeing lots more children making use of it over the coming weeks.
Thank you for all your kind donations to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. Poppies and gifts will be on sale again next week at playtime.
Tombola Prize Movie Afternoon
This is an appeal for donations of bottles (any product that is sold in a bottle) and chocolate for our Christmas Fair Tombolas. Please could donations be brought into school during the week commencing Monday 18th November. This should give us time to get all the tombola items ticketed ready for the Fair. In return for their donations, the children will be invited to take part in a special Movie Afternoon in school on Friday 22nd.
CHOOSE BEING KIND OVER BEING RIGHT and you’ll be right EVERY TIME

Missing Gingerbread Folk Located!
This week, the children in Year One were horrified to find that one of their family of gingerbread people had disappeared from the classroom. They made posters and notices to hang all around the school in the hope that their missing friend would be found.
Lots of the children made appeal badges too and had been wearing them on their uniforms during the day to make sure that everyone knew about their mission.
I am thrilled to tell you all that the missing person was found safely yesterday after Eadie set a trap, enticing him in using raisins – and it worked! Well done, Year On. From all the photographs we have seen, he has been all over the school this week and up to all kinds of mischief.
Parents of children in Reception Class and Year One should have received their invitations to a Phonics Workshop being held in school at 5.30pm on Wednesday of next week. If you have misplaced yours and would like to come, please let your child’s class teacher know on Monday. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
Keep collecting the tokens from Aldi, please.
Two weeks to go!
THIS WEEK’S WINNING TEAM IS
Well done to all of the members of the girls’ football team who took part in the second round of the tournament this week at the Prairie. They played three games, drawing one and losing two, so didn’t make it through to the next round but we were very proud of them. They were a little disappointed with the outcome but Miss North and Mr Lomas, who accompanied them, both said that they did an amazing job with some great play from individuals as well as together as a team. Well done, girls!
