BOOKS AND ROSES
Another spectacular Books and Roses day last Friday with a whole host of knights, brownies, beavers and a sea of red and white. Lots of flowers given too, which was really lovely to see. Thank you all for taking part, for your book reviews and for the wonderful Shakespeare portraits!
WORLD BOOK DAY
Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate World Book Day last Thursday by dressing up as book characters. Everyone looked great!
FAIRTRADE THEME WEEK CELEBRATION
Wow, what a wonderful week! Thank you to everyone who visited on Friday to share pupil’s work and buy from our Fairtrade market. We made a total of £210.82 for the Fairtrade Foundation – thank you!!
WORLD WILDLIFE FUND FUNDRAISING DAY
Thank you to everyone who dressed up in animal costume, animal print or in clothes with pictures of animals on, during our non-uniform day last Friday, to raise money for the WWF. We had an amazing range of creatures come to school and is was lovely to see so many pupils had really thought about their costumes and made a real effort.
Thank you to Heather in Year 4 for organising the fundraising day. She did an excellent job telling everyone about the event in assembly and putting up posters around school to publicise the day.
We are pleased to confirm we have raised £302.50 for the WWF. This is fantastic – thank you all for your contributions – your support is greatly appreciated.
JUNIOR CAROL CONCERT
Thank you to everyone who came to join us at Staple Hill Methodist Church on Tuesday. We had some really lovely comments from mums, dads and carers who enjoyed the evening. Thank you for your feedback and support.
CHILDREN IN NEED
Thank you to everyone who supported Children in Need last Friday, by wearing Pudsey accessories and buying the wonderful biscuits that our Reception classes had made. The Hedgehogs and Squirrels spent all of Thursday and Friday baking brilliantly, and a huge ‘Thank You’ must go to our EYFS team for all their hard work, and to mums, dads and all those who came to help out both in the kitchen and assisting in selling the biscuits. The biscuit sales raised £250 – an amazing amount, and the Pudsey accessories we sold came to another £108 so thank you for your support of this very worthy cause.
Tynings Got Talent
Our fantastic ‘Tynings Got Talent’ finalists, entertaining us with their brilliant performances on the last morning of term 1.
HARVEST THANK YOU
Thank you to everyone who supported the Resound food bank by bringing produce for our Harvest collection last Thursday. The children all made some lovely contributions in assembly and I know the donations will be greatly appreciated by those in need, so thank you for your kind support.
