Friends of the School Christmas Raffle and Refreshments

A huge thank you to Friends of the School who organised our Christmas raffle and performance refreshments. Thank you also for the generous donations to the raffle and for supporting with buying tickets. We raised £600.  This money will be used to directly support and enhance learning for our children in school.

Giving to others at Christmas – Singing at Abbey Care Home

Thank you to a group of our Year 6 children who volunteered to sing carols on two occasions during this week and next at Abbey Care Home.

Christmas Parties next week

We ask that you help us with our parties (see dates below) by making a contribution of party food. Class 1 and 2 parents please sign the list in the office entrance area (or phone school) to indicate what you can bring.

Class 3 and 4 children please can boys bring some savoury food to share and girls bring sweet/dessert food to share.

You do not need to send large quantities of food as it is mid-afternoon party snack at about 2.30pm. Children will have lunch as normal at 12 noon.

Remember to name your boxes and tins if you would like them returning afterwards.

The children come to school in their uniform on the day of their party and bring some clothes to change into for their party in the afternoon.
