Air, Earth, Fire & Water

16 06 2014

Greek philosophers such as Aristotle believed that the natural world was made up of four elements: air, earth,  fire and water.  Aristotle believed that most materials were not necessarily made up of  just one element but of a combination of these elements.  Science has since moved on and it’s been discovered that there are in fact over a hundred chemical elements. The  basic principle though can also be used to describe St. Leonard’s Primary School; four houses comprised of many individuals.

On Monday 16th & Wednesday 18th June (weather permitting) these individuals will represent their houses by taking part in Sports Day.   KS1 pupils will have their Sports Day on Monday afternoon with KS2′s Sports Day taking place on the Wednesday afternoon.

Good luck to all.

FOSLS, our PTA Committee, will be having a Bag2School collection on Tuesday 11th November 2014. This initiative allows schools to raise money by collecting unwanted goods for which the school gets paid by weight.   If you have any items of good quality second-hand clothing, bedding, curtains, soft toys, shoes, belts and handbags to donate to this scheme they would be much appreciated.  Blue collection bags are available from the school office or you can use any bag from home including black bin liners. All money raised will benefit the children of St. Leonard’s.

Please ensure bags are delivered to school by 9.00am on Tuesday 11th November 2014.

Unfortunately due to lack of storage space we are unable to accept bags prior to the collection date.

Thank you for your support.
