Links Primary School

Friday 19th January 2024

Dear Links Families,

 

This week we embraced the coldness, and both Reception and Year 2 children attended their rescheduled pantomime at Wimbledon Library. They had a fantastic time at the show and I am very proud to say that their behaviour was exceptional. Our Year 5 children attended one of their many rehearsals to practise for their Royal Albert Hall performance in March, and Lincoln the Bear joined in too.  

  

 

 

Royal Albert Hall - Year 5 Performance

Excitement is building amongst our pupils and staff as they prepare to showcase their musical talents at the Royal Albert Hall with Merton Music Foundation, for their epic ‘Music is for Life’ concert on Monday 11 March 2024. 

This incredible opportunity is the result of months of dedication and collaboration, and has not only nurtured a love for music but has also provided invaluable learning experiences while leading up to a concert they’ll never forget.

Parents, guardians and the whole school community are invited to witness the magic of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

NSPCC Number Day Friday 2nd February 2024

We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in Number Day on Friday 2nd February 2024.

 

We are having a fun day of maths activities and we will be taking part in Dress up for Digits. Pupils are asked to wear an item of clothing with a number on it (football shirt, cap, netball shirt or even a onesie!). Or, get even more creative by dressing in a maths or numbers theme. If you do not have anything number themed at home, do not worry, you can wear anything patterned or with shapes on it. To help raise money for the NSPCC we are asking for donations. If you can, please send in a donation to support the NSPCC’s work. This can be given to the class teacher on the day.

 

All the money we raise at Links Primary School will make an enormous difference to children today and help the NSPCC be there for children tomorrow.

 

Playscheme

Just a reminder that there will be no playscheme this half term. Playscheme will run as usual in the Easter holidays. Additional information can be found on the school website via the Extended Services tab  https://www.links.merton.sch.uk/Extended-Services-Home/
