Some of our children are starting drumming lessons after school, with a music teacher from Shropshire Music Service.
The teacher is also able to offer Samba Music Club, which is an opportunity to join in some exciting music making after school.
The club will run on Wednesdays, from 3.15-4.15 next half term. The cost for the sessions will be £3.50 per session, or £17.50 for the 5 weeks of next half term.
Rota and Raffle
You should have received a rota for the Bike Show, please return by February 26th. You should also have received a set of raffle tickets, if not please let the office know.
The school have arranged a memorial plaque for Ron Maund, founder of the Wistanstow Bike Show, in memory and gratitude for the contribution Ron made to Wistanstow School. The plaque will go on the wall inside the school entrance, and we would like to hold an unveiling ceremony on: Wednesday 7th March at 3pm (in the playground) with tea and cake afterwards in the school hall. Ron’s family have been invited to attend, and it would be great if as many parents as possible could come too to show our appreciation for the money that continues to be raised for our children through the Bike Show. Please see the letter going out in school bags for further information.

As Tessa is now unavailable for the remaining Monday League matches, the few remaining matches after half term, will need parents to take the children and to organise the team. Otherwise, we will have to withdraw from the League, which would be a real shame after so much hard work by all those involved. There will be no further netball sessions on Wednesdays for next half term. Hopefully, sessions will resume for the summer term.
On Thursday afternoon, the Imam Sohayb Peerbhai of the Craven Arms Islamic Centre came to tell Class 3 about how the words of the Muhammad influence his life and to answer the children’s questions about being a Muslim.
