    Autumn Newsletter

    We’ve had a few events and visitors in school this half term.

    Chris Cyprus (a local artist to the area) painted in the company of our children. To watch a work of such beauty be created from blank canvas to finished product is a treat and a privilege for us all. It will be proudly displayed in school for all to see.

    We were visited by Richard O’Neill, National Literacy Hero, author, and friend of Hey with Zion. He worked with our older classes and presented us with copies of his latest book.

    Our girls were treated to a visit from Lancashire Cricket Club players Laura Jackson and Hannah Jones, who talked of their careers and set out to encourage our girls to take advantage of as many sporting opportunities as they can.

    KS2 had the privilege of a workshop with Ash Randall a freestyle footballer. Years 5 & 6 had an assembly with him, then he did a 45-minute session with each class.

    The whole school were transported back in time to a ‘Victorian Day’. Check out the class blog pages, there were some fabulous costumes.

    Summer Newsletter 2

    Farewells and New Beginnings

    As we look forward to the summer holidays and a new school year we would like to thank staff, children, parents and governors for their hard work and dedication to Hey with Zion during these unprecedent times. Sadly, we are saying goodbye to one member of staff; Miss Adshead as she is moving on to pastures new. We would like to express our thanks to her for her dedication and hard work, she will be missed by staff and children alike.

    We would like to say farewell to our year 6 children. It has been a hard year for them and something that none of us have experienced or expected. They have had a very successful partial year and we would like to thank Mrs Patterson, Mrs Light and Mr Atkin for all their hard work. Our best wishes go with the children as they move on to a new and very exciting stage in their education. We are very proud of you!

    Congratulations are in order to Miss Tammi who is getting married in the summer holidays. Best wishes from us all!

    Finally, we hope that everyone has a fantastic summer holiday and that we all return in September refreshed and ready to do our best again!
