Dear Parents and Carers,

Six weeks in to term already and once again, we have had another successful week at Orton Wistow Primary School.

Harvest Collection

We have already had some donations come in to school for this year’s harvest collection. All food that is donated is given to the local foodbank to help out families in Peterborough. My assembly on Monday will be about harvest time and we will talk about what happens during this time of year and how the food on the collection table will be used.

Parents Evening

It has been great to see so many people sign up for a parents evening slot taking place next week on Tuesday and Thursday. If you haven’t done so already, please login to the school cloud system and book an appointment to see your child’s class teacher. All meetings are virtual and will start at the time you have chosen. If you are experiencing any problems with the system, please contact the school office.

Girls Football Festival

Huge congratulations to our girls’ football team for their performance at the football festival yesterday at Jack Hunt school. The team played several games and won them all! We have seen several new members join the team this year and they have already shown teamwork, perseverance and resilience whilst playing together.

Art Sessions

Year 3 have the opportunity for a few OBA students to teach them a variety of art sessions this term. They are all in school and during lesson time on three Wednesdays, beginning next Wednesday. They are supervised with the usual OWPS teachers. We hope the children will learn lots from these sessions and enjoy the opportunity.

Just one week before the half-term break. I hope you all enjoy the weekend and I shall see you on Monday.

Mr. Marks
