Dear Parents/carers

 

Children in Need

The School Council has decided that for Children in Need next Friday, 15th November, they would like children to come dressed in spots or wearing Children in Need items, and bring a £1 charity donation.

 

Also, the school council will be holding a Jumble Sale of old toys (not electrical) and books on Friday lunchtime.  Please send in donations of items for sale from Monday onwards.  They will be selling the toys and books for between 50p and £1.  On Friday 15th, if your child would like to visit the sale and possibly buy something, please send your child with a small amount of money in a sealed envelope with their name on it.  All proceeds will be going towards Children in Need.

 

Amazon Wish List

A big thank you to parents who have brought items from the Class wish lists, it is very much appreciated that you are supporting the school. The children will have a fabulous time using the items in class to support their learning.
