End of School Time Change
The Infant day will finish at 3.15 in line with the juniors from now on.
Badminton and Football Club Dates
All three clubs will recommence week beginning 15th January.
The Friday after school football club will recommence on Friday 19th January.
The club will not run in the Spring Term until the field dries out as our runners are ending up with very muddy trainers and wet socks! We will notify parents when the club starts up again.
Diary Date-Wear it Wild Day, Tuesday 20th March
A Wear it Wild event is a dress-up day with a difference; children can wear animal themed clothes or stripes and spots. A donation of £1 from every family in the school is requested for the World Wildlife Fund.
The PTA quiz is taking place on Saturday 24th February at 7.30pm. If you would like to book, please either drop your money into the school office in an envelope detailing your name, email address and team name or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your table details. The cost is £5 per person.
Teams can be made up from between 6 and 8 people. We can help organise a table for you – just let us know your details.
A bar will be available on the night, open from 7.15. We really appreciate you buying alcohol from the bar; please do not bring your own, as it helps us to raise more money for our children. Please bring along your own snacks and nibbles.
Please do ask if anything in the newsletter is unclear.
