Welcome to our Weekly Newsletter where we share relevant information with you about what has been happening here at Bracken Leas and events planned in future weeks.

It has been a very busy start to the summer term. There are lots of events planned, starting with Warrior Challenge next Friday. Parents and Carers should have received a detailed letter via Arbor this week from FOBL. Here is a brief reminder of what children need to bring with them on the day.

Children are invited to attend school ‘Warrior Ready’. This should include trainers that you and your child do not mind getting wet and muddy.

Please ensure that your child has the following to change into:

  • School uniform, including underwear and school shoes
  • Towel – to dry themselves off with
  • Water Bottle
  • Healthy Snack to eat after completion of the challenge
  • Sun hat, Sun cream (Fingers crossed for sun)
  • Year 6 only – if your child has been asked to help on the day, they will need an extra set of ‘Warrior Ready’ clothing as they will get wet for a second time.

Parents may come and spectate and should enter school via the school gates. There will be no access to the area via the school office.

Brackley Carnival Success!

A big thank you to FOBL and all of the children from Bracken Leas who took part in the carnival last weekend. We are thrilled to have been announced as the winning entry in the parade.
