Book Week

We will be celebrating World Book Day on 7th March by holding a week of reading and book-themed activities, these will include a surprise guest as well as adults and pupils sharing their favourite books. We will not be dressing up. This week, a set of Book Week Challenges is coming home with every child, this includes a mixture of written, practical and fun activities for the children to have a go at over half term and the following week. Included are two competitions they can choose to take part in – Extreme Reading and turning a vegetable into a book character! Children are then invited to bring any completed challenges in to school at the start of Book Week, to share with their class.

Rags2Riches clothing collection

Your child will have brought home a bag for collection of unwanted clothing, shoes, jewellery, belts and handbags.   Collection day is 11th March.  Please do not send in bags prior to this, as we have nowhere to store them.  They can be dropped at school on 11th March when you bring your child to school.   Thank you.

Summer Fair – Sunday 12th May

As the PTA starts preparing for the summer fair, please can we ask for support gathering donations of the following items:

Tombola Prizes – e.g. bottles, biscuits, new/un-used good quality items for both adults and children

Water or wine stall – bottles of wine

Teddy tombola – Any good quality clean soft toys

All of the above can be dropped off at school, ideally after the Easter holidays, but by Friday 3rd May.

We are also looking for donations of plants for our plant stall, so calling any budding gardeners who would be willing to start growing plants in readiness!  Plants to be dropped off on Friday 10th May.

Thank you.
