May the fourth be with you….

On Tuesday 4th May the whole school will be taking part in a covid-safe marathon day to raise money for Mental Health UK. This charity provides mental health information, advice and support to people of all ages and it needs our fundraising support more than ever. A Fishergate staff family member, Mark Waters, is involved in raising money for this charity and has asked for our help.
All donations this year can be made via the Just Giving website:
Please donate what you can.
On 4th May all pupils can come into school dressed in running clothes and trainers- ready to run! During the day each class will join Mrs Clarke on the school field to run a mile with her. Each pupil will be awarded with a medal for their efforts.  Please note that this year the medals are a bit unusual- just remind your child to look on the back of the medal as well πŸ™‚
Thank you so much for all your support. A slightly different marathon day this year…but at least we are running!

May the Fourth Marathon Day!

Star Wars: May the Fourth Be With You and FREE Comic Book Day ...We will be running our Star Wars marathon on May 4th!

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to do the usual taking 26 groups of children to run along the river. Instead the children will be running a mile around the field – I think it is 11 times around! They will all get a medal for their efforts and I am hoping that there will still be the marathon day buzz around school. This year we are raising money for Mental Health UK. More details will be sent closer to the time.
