Learn to read books
As we near the end of the school year there are always timetable changes to accommodate sports days, transition times etc.  With this in mind our timetable for learning to read books coming home to celebrate reading needs to alter slightly from the norm.

Thank you for your understanding.

News from the Wider Community…
Message from Friends
The friends of Kirkby Malzeard School have organised a sponsored fun run on Thursday 27th June 2024 and would love it if as many pupils as possible can take part.
Parents can collect their children from school at normal time, in time for a 3.45PM start on the school field. The children will have 30 minutes to run, jog, walk or skip as many laps of the field as they can until 4.15PM.
Hot dogs and soft drinks will then be available for children, siblings and parents at £1.50 per person. Pre-orders would be ideal and can be ordered through your class rep or via email to friendskmschool@gmail.com, although some will be available to purchase on the day. The event should be finished by 5PM at the latest.
Please add the date to your diary for this fun event and look out for the sponsorship forms which will be sent home with your child shortly.
Autism Central
Just a reminder that the Autism Central team have been running a series of coffee mornings in Ripon for parents and carers of children who display traits associated with, or have a diagnosis of, a neurodevelopmental condition including: autism, sensory processing, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). A diagnosis is not needed.
There is one more session before the end of term: this coming Monday 17 June
These free drop-in sessions provide a safe space for parents and carers to meet others in a similar situation and enable parents to support each other, share experiences and ideas, facilitated by a member of the Autism Central team.
