This week the children have been enjoying the new
Medlock Meals! The children sit in their houses to eat
and the tidiest houses will win points towards the
end of year prize. Each week the tidiest house will
also enjoy the treat of juice on a Friday and the
names of that house will be entered into a Medlock
Meals raffle. The raffle will be held in assembly on a
Monday and prizes include tickets to attractions and
the cinema.
Medlock Meals also has a new queuing system,

choices appearing on See-Saw soon too!

Rusty's Train Ride
by Heather Amery (Author) and Stephen Cartwright
This book is from a series of books called Usborne Farmyard
Tales. They are brilliant for sharing with younger children, as
it has simple text for them to read and parts for you to read
to them. The books are all about two children called
Poppy and Sam and their exciting adventures around the
farm. In Rusty's Train Ride, Poppy and Sam visit the steam
train and Rusty, their dog, jumps on to the train. Is he being
naughty or was there something wrong?
Look out for this book in our library, it is particularly good for
nursery, reception or Y1 children.
