What a fabulous week we’ve had!
Thank you to all of you for your support at the summer fayre. It was wonderful to see so many of you there and it was great to have an audience to perform to. Thank you to all of the School Circle that gave precious time to plan and prepare the day.
Back on Monday, Merlin class had a brilliant trip to the Islamic centre in Craven Arms. The whole of the class were very respectful and asked some fabulous questions. We all learnt lots!
On Thursday, years five and six (with Ella) represented the school at the athletics competition. All children competed in all events demonstrating excellent perseverance. Congratulations to all teams, but in particularly to the girls’ team who were first in their group.
This Friday we had the Crossbar Cup football competition. Our team were fabulous! They worked together as a team and played some tricky matches. They were successful against some large primary schools and made it through to the cup competition. Overall they were placed fourth. Well done to all.
On another note, we would like to wish Mrs Hall the very best of luck in September. She has decided to return to teaching. We are thankful for all the time, support and effort she has dedicated to Longnor and Eagle Class. Good luck, Mrs Hall!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
All the best.
Mrs L Edgerton

Thanks to everyone who took part in the Home Section of the Summer Fete and to the wonderful judges who had the hard job of picking the winners!
You will see from the images below that the standard of entries was really high, making the judges decisions very difficult. Well done to everyone who took part and to the winners:
Little Owls & Reception:
This week Eagles and Merlins have the following provision on Wednesday afternoon:
This week Merlins class visited the Craven Arms Islamic Centre and The Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre. They had a very informative and interesting day talking to the Imam in the morning and pond dipping in the afternoon.
Just a reminder that Merlins class will be walking up the Lawley on Monday. Please make sure your child is wearing sturdy shoes and that they bring clothing suitable for the weather including a waterproof coat, hat and sunscreen. They will also need plenty of water and a packed lunch (no nuts, glass bottles or fizzy drinks please).
As we approach the end of the school year, we would be most grateful if you can start settling up your accounts on ParentPay.
You can get up to £500 every 3 months (up to £2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. This goes up to £1,000 every 3 months if a child is disabled (up to £4,000 a year).
If you get Tax-Free Childcare, you’ll set up an online childcare account for your child. For every £8 you pay into this account, the government will pay in £2 to use to pay your provider.
You can use your tax free childcare account to pay for all wraparound care, including clubs.

Just to keep you informed, next year we will be offering two new after school activities: Gymnastics on Monday and Invasion (a mix of rugby, football, netball, basketball etc.) on Wednesday.
