Star Wars Art ECA


Dear Parents and Jedi’s,

Next week in StarWars art club we will be making our own spaceships.  If you have any recycling materials at home, it would be great if we could have them.  The children brainstormed some ideas on Monday.  They suggested:

  • Cardboard rolls
  • Cereal boxes
  • Bottle tops (great for robot buttons)
  • Plastic bottles
  • Empty juice cartons.
  • Foil
  • Straws

I have a few things at home that I will bring in, so please don’t worry if you are struggling.

May the force be with you.

Mr Dowlman.

Term 2 ECA Dismissal Update

Dear Parents,

Our ECA programme commences from Sunday 10th January and below you will find the collection arrangements:

Multi-Purpose Hall

Most internal, teacher-led ECAs will be dismissed from here. During the first week, the ECA names will be posted onto the external doors of the MPH to indicate the club to be dismissed from each door. This will then remain the same for the rest of the term so please head to these doors each week. We kindly ask that you wait outside, on the correct side of the door, for your children who will be dismissed by the ECA teacher. To assist the ECA teacher please inform them of your child’s name should you be unfamiliar to the teacher. This will allow for a calm and swift dismissal.


Outdoor, teacher-led ECAs and external providers will be dismissed from the courtyard, which includes:

KS1 Mixed netball

Elite Tag Rugby

Elite Hockey

DKC Taekwondo


Theatre works

Phoenix Rising

School of Little Voice



Outdoor, teacher-led ECAs and external providers will be dismissed from the field, which includes:

KS1 Football

Mixed Tag Rugby

Y4-6  Girls Touch Rugby Squad

Y4-6  Boys Touch Rugby Squad

Elite football

FS External ECAs – Dismissal will be from the main school reception.

As these are new dismissal arrangements we will be reviewing how they work over the course of this first week and we will notify you if there are amendments to be made.

We kindly ask that you arrive on time as we require a prompt dismissal to allow the MPH to be used by other external providers from 3:45pm.

We thank you in advance for your support with this.

Best wishes
