Reading events throughout February 2024
Throughout February, we are running a number of reading events which I hope you will be able to get involved with.
Fun reading challenge from Monday 22nd January to Monday 12th February
Our reading champions are challenging all pupils to find a fun place to read and enjoy their books! A few ideas include reading in a home-made tent, on a journey or at the park. Please send in photographs to email@example.com. The reading champions will be choosing their favourites and prizes will be awarded. The photographs will be displayed in the hall during celebration afternoon on Friday 16th February.
Scholastic book fair w/c Monday 12th February
The scholastic book fair is coming to Mount! The children will be visiting the fair to browse on Tuesday with their class.

Payment at the fair can be made by parents using a card. Cash is no longer accepted at scholastic book fairs.

Reading celebration afternoon Friday 16th February
Our school is looking forward to celebration afternoon. All of our pupils will be applying for a Blue Peter reading badge to celebrate the reading for pleasure that takes place across school. School will be sending the applications altogether but we will need parents or carers to complete part of the application. If you are unable to attend, please be assured that the application will be sent home for completion.
Chinese New Year Lunch - Thursday 15th February
For Chinese New Year our wonderful kitchen created a fabulous menu. Here is Miss Katie ready to serve our children.
Tesco Stronger Starts Campaign - Please help us by voting for Mount Primary when you shop
Mount Primary have been chosen for the Tesco Stronger Starts token campaign! Our Lighthouse Club would benefit from funding to assist with their eco status and to assist with their food costs.
School Dinners. Yum!
Our wonderful kitchen have been very busy making some yummy food for our children, from the Wednesday roast beef dinner, to tasty curry with star garlic bread!
On Thursday 18th January we also had a very delicious American themed lunch. A massive thank you to the kitchen team for all their hard work. It was quite the celebration with balloons and American music. The children loved it!
It's not all or nothing. Your child doesn't have to choose between packed lunches or school dinners, why not have both on different days of the week? Our rolling menu runs for three weeks and we know not everyone likes everything, so why not look at our current menu HERE and see whether there are any days that have your child's favourites? They can always try first if you child is unsure. Contact the school office to try a meal before making a decision or for more information. School meals cost £2.20 per day unless your child is entitled to Universal free school meals, or Means Tested free school meals.
Wirral Hospice St John's Rudolph Run
Thank you for your generosity
Children in Need
Guess who visited us at school? The children were all excited to meet Pudsey bear for Children in Need.
F2 and Eco Hedgehog Walk
Our wonderful reception classes will be taking part in The Wildlife Trusts ‘Big Wild Walk’ on Friday 20th October. They will be dressing up as hedgehogs and woodland animals for a Hedgehog Walk to raise awareness about wildlife protection and restoring nature.
It is a sponsored event and we are hoping to raise the minimum sponsorship amount of £30.00 for The Wildlife Trust. The school community has already been incredibly generous supporting Alder Hey last week so we are only asking for any spare coppers that you would like to donate.
Our hedgehog piggy bank will be outside of reception collecting donations on Friday 20.10.23.
Many thanks for your support,
Alder Hey PJ Day
On Friday 13th October we supported the Alder Hey PJ Day.
Everyone came to school in their pjs to join us in raising the fantastic total of £588.84 for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital!
