Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place

November 2021

Welcome back to the new half term everyone. The trees around school are looking beautiful as they change to their autumnal colours.

As a school we have a different value to learn about and demonstrate each month. In September our value was kindness, in October it was service and this month’s value is tolerance. 

Last month our litter picking club began – this has been really successful so far in making the streets around our school cleaner and tidier for our community. This service to our community will continue all year, as we have so many willing, able and enthusiastic volunteers.

This month, our value of tolerance will be embedded during Anti-Bullying Week (15th – 19th November), where this year’s theme is One Kind Word. Our UKS2 classes will be accessing some anti-racism workshops during that week and all children are invited to wear odd socks to school on Monday 15th November – a day which encourages us to express ourselves and celebrate our individuality and what makes us unique.

I am delighted to say that our October sponsored run for the Trussell Trust helped Mrs Milner to raise over £3000 to help to save the Bradford Central foodbank. Thank you to all of the children for committing so enthusiastically to achieving (and exceeding) their running targets and thank you to all of our families who donated to Mrs Milner’s Go Fund Me page.

If you have anything that you need to ask me about or let me know about, please email the school office, come to see me or give me a call and I will get back to you.

Mrs Wilson
