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 🙂
 
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.

Mrs Wilson – spotted!

13 miles done, and still smiling!

The most important reason for her Star Wars run was to see as many of the lovely children from Early  Years as possible!

However, she is also fundraising. Foodbanks in the UK are under more pressure than ever in the current situation; York alone has seen a 400% increase in use since lockdown began.

If you would like to, you can donate to Mrs Wilson’s JustGiving page in aid of the Trussell Trust.

Mrs Wilson’s Socially Distanced May 4th Run!

On May 4th we usually run our Star Wars marathon at Fishergate Primary School with all the children and staff involved – and often many parents and governors! We have had to postpone this year’s event, but Mrs Wilson is planning to run past as many Early Years children’s homes as possible to give them a (socially distanced!) wave.

Foodbanks in the UK are under more pressure than ever in the current situation; York alone has seen a 400% increase in use since lockdown began.

May the Fourth Marathon Day: Cancelled…for now!

Dear All

As a result of school closures, we have had to cancel the ‘May the 4th be with you’ marathon day. We plan on rescheduling this day for later on in the year. 

We think that when we can safely run it, it will be a lovely way to celebrate school being re-opened and us all being back together. So until then stay safe and….
