Space Chase is Go!

23 Jul

Join the Summer Reading Challenge

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is an out of this world adventure inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

Children taking part will help our super space family, the Rockets, as they track down books nabbed by mischievous aliens!  Sign up at your local library.

We’ve also lots of space themed activities taking place all summer.

Next week you can build a rocket, make a dreamcatcher, learn circus skills, create alien masks, enjoy family table top gaming and lots more – it’s all happening at Sheffield Libraries!

Is your child school ready?

11 Apr

In 2018, there were over 900 laboratory-confirmed measles cases in England.

Measles is a highly infectious viral illness that can be very unpleasant and can lead to serious health complications and in rare cases can be fatal.

We want to make sure that all pre-school children are protected from Measles, Mumps and Rubella and are fully vaccinated before they start school this September.

We are urging parents and guardians of all pre-school children to check with their GP that they are fully up to date with the 2 doses of the MMR vaccine.

Let this be one less thing you have to worry about before they start school.
