Classes and teachers for next year

A letter is being sent home with the children today to let everyone know about the teaching arrangements for the next academic year.

Poetry competition

Well done to all pupils who entered our ‘World’/Football poetry competition. The grand final was held today in a special assembly. Congratulations to all pupils who represented their class in today’s grand final and to those who won best listening awards. Special mention to Isabelle Clark in Y1 and Charlie Holding in Y3 who won the competition.

Sports update

To confirm, KS1 sports day is on Monday 18th June at 1.30pm and KS2’s is Wednesday 20th June at 1.30pm. Sorry for any confusion.

Good luck to Y5/6 cricketers who are playing in the FAVSP ‘Kwik Cricket’ competition this Tuesday at Frodsham Cricket club.

History Day!

Don’t forget it’s our London History Day on. Further to their Houses of Parliament visit, the school council have planned a ‘Helsby Hillside general election’. Today, three parties will present their ‘manifesto’ to the school. They will be campaigning throughout the week and every child will get to vote on Friday.


We hope that everyone is looking forward to a good half-term holiday next week. School closes on Friday 25th May at 3.15pm and re-opens at 8.55am on Monday 4th June.

Cinema Night

A reminder, if you wish your child to attend the cinema night on Thursday 14th June: please book by making payment via Parentpay by Friday 25th May at the latest.

Art Jam Club

Art Jam will be continuing their after school club again after half-term, 11th June-16th July. See notice boards and attached for further details.

Lunch Account

Please ensure your child’s lunch account is in credit or has a £0 balance and any arrears are cleared on ParentPay before we break for half-term this week on Friday 25th May.


Frodsham Cricket Club are looking for new players to start outdoor training on Friday 25th May 6.30pm - 7.30pm for years 4, 5, 6, girls and boys. For further information please contact

Tonight’s meeting has been cancelled and rearranged for Monday 11th June at School, 7pm. At this meet up, we will be finalising the Summer Fair.


It’s DISCO week! Come and join us at our last DISCO of the year, shake away those exams and relax with friends! KS1 is 6-7pm & KS2 is 7:15-8:15pm. Entrance is £2.50.


We are expecting our Clothes Aid Bags this week so that you can have them for half-term. Please have a look through your wardrobes and see which shoes, clothes and accessories such as hats, scarfs, gloves etc you no longer need and wish to donate.

Thanks to your donations, FOH receive 60p/kg and also gives you the chance to have a good sort out and de clutter.

Summer Fair

When we come back from half-term, it will be all systems go to make sure we give Hillside the BEST Summer Fair EVER!

Our usual Summer Fair Letter will go out soon and we would be very grateful if you could complete and return them ASAP. Thank you.
