We have had a much quieter time in school this week after all the visitors we had in school last week. As you know we had a very exciting end to last week with a lot of children coming to school in their pyjamas for ‘Children in Need’. I am pleased to inform you that we raised £219.20 to donate to this cause so thank you to everyone who contributed.
We did have some visitors in school this week from Chancellors School and they included some former pupils. They had put together a performance of the pantomime ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and they presented it to our Year1 and Year 2 children who thoroughly enjoyed it –even if it was a little bit different to the original story.
Next week we are having a ‘Mufti Day’ on Friday for our Christmas Fayre. This time the children can come to school in non-uniform if you donate some chocolate or a bottle of wine to be used on one of the tombola stalls at the Christmas Fayre. The PTA will be collecting the donations at the school gate. They are also looking for donations of 2nd hand toys or books so this would be a good time to sort out your children’s toys so you can get rid of any old ones before Father Christmas delivers a whole batch of new ones.
You will also need to get your hamper donation sent into class by next week so that all the hampers for the raffle can be put together in time for the Fayre. I know we appear to be asking you for a lot but the PTA do put in a lot of hard work into making the event a success and all the profit from the fayre goes into buying resources in the school that benefit all the children. Only recently the PTA has purchased iPads which are being used in all the classrooms and extra books to help extend the selection in the reading scheme. We are also having new curtains delivered next week to be hung in the hall which the PTA has paid for as well.
