The Newham Leisure Centre will be running their annual Halloween Family Fun Run during half term on Friday 29th October, starting at 4:30pm. It’s for all ages and abilities whether you can run, skip, walk or jog one lap or complete as many as you can in the time.
- All participants receive a medal
- Children go FREE
- Prizes for the best Halloween dressed runner/s

Drumroll, please… clubs are back and better than ever! We are starting the year by launching a selection of clubs for KS2 (Year 3, 4, 5 and 6) that will run ALL YEAR - what an opportunity! By joining one of these longer-running clubs, children will be able to build up their skills and be able to use them in competitions, performances and other celebrations! Apply using the Google Form being sent to all families with children in Year 3 - 6.
Are you in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 or just feel sad that there isn’t the right club for you? Don’t worry! We will be running lots more clubs in the Spring and Summer term, following our usual ‘6 week block’ model.

As mentioned in our ParentMail message earlier in the week, we have been informed that there are currently cases of head lice in several year groups. Head lice are very common in children and can cause itching and irritation. Please speak to your local pharmacist or read the NHS guidance here if you think your child may be affected. You do not need to speak to your doctor about head lice.
