Children in Need - Friday 18th November  

 

On Friday 18th November, we ask that children and staff wear something spotty to celebrate Children in Need. Your donations can help children and young people all over the UK who need it most. If you would like to complete your own fundraising challenges, please follow this link for some ideas - https://www.bbcchildreninneed.co.uk/fundraising/ten-on-the-spot-fundraising-challenges/

We would love to hear about any fundraising challenges you and your family take part in! Thank you for your support.  

Winter

Now that we are heading towards winter, please ensure your children brings a coat each day.

We recommend bringing a spare pair of sock as some children are getting quite soggy feet during PE.

We are beginning to collect items for sculpture week.

Each child will need a plastic 2l bottle. Please bring more than one if you can.

We are also collecting newspapers.

Please bring them in by Friday 21st October.
