Rosendale Summer Fair – Saturday 1 July – 1pm – 4pm

It’s the Rosendale Summer Fair on Saturday.  A reminder that all this week the PTA are selling raffle tickets in the blue hut before and after school.  The raffle will be drawn at the summer fair on Saturday.
Entry to fair is via the Turney Road gate. As well of lots of fun activities and crafts there will be lots of challenges (athletic and fun!) and performances from our very talented KS1 and KS2 Choirs, Steel Pan band and our orchestra.

South Downs Fundraiser

Call them crazy but starting at midnight on the 15th July, Miss Atkins, Mrs Boothroyd, Mr Criddle, Mrs Salmon and Mr Brokensha will be walking 40 miles along the South Downs Way to raise money for Action Medical Research. This is a charity that funds research into diseases that affect children. They will be ably supported in their endeavour by their driver, Dave – Rosendale’s premises officer – who will hopefully have them back in time for work on the Monday!

If you would like to sponsor them and support the work of this important charity, here is the link to their sponsorship page. Further information about the work undertaken by Action Medical Research can also be found there:


Science Challenge…

Do you know?
Why is each finger a different length? Can you answer this scientific question?  If so write your answer on a piece of paper with your name and class and pop it in the green box by 4AN. You may get mentioned in the radio or newsletter next week! For more information look out for the posters dotted around school. Deadline Thursday 29th June.

5CV Music Recording

Dear Parents

A letter has gone home today about a music recording I am planning to do with 5CV. Please can you ensure your child gives you the letter and you return it as soon as possible as I am planning to do the recording quite soon.

Thank you so much!

SPORTS DAY – this Friday


Sports Day is taking place on Friday at the Rosendale Road Playing Field. A reminder of the timings:


  • KS2 children will arrive at the field for a picnic lunch at 12 noon,
  • KS2 races commence at 1pm.

Please ensure that your child comes into school in their PE kit and brings a water bottle.

A reminder that everyone is having a picnic lunch on the field. Harrisons will provide a packed lunch to all those who normally have a school lunch. Packed lunch children should bring their lunch as normal. I really hope that you are able to join us at the field.

Parents and carers are welcome to take their children home straight from the field however you must sign your child out with me first.

Drama performance !

On Thursday we had a group of university students in from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama to perform a children’s show for the whole of Year 5. Year 5 were mesmerized and sat for over an hour, listening to the stories and songs that the students performed.
