Year 3 Christmas Fayre Appeal

In order to help fund our super trip next summer, Y3 are organising a Christmas Fayre which will take place in the afternoon on Tuesday 4th December.

We are calling on the generosity of our parents and community to support us with this. We are currently wanting;

  • teddies/soft toys in good condition for our teddy tombola
  • good quality toys, children's books and dressing up costumes
  • donations of sweets and chocolates
  • raffle prizes
  • parents who can spare a couple of hours to help our Y3 children run a stall at the Christmas Fayre.

If you can help in any way, please get in touch with a member of the Y3 team in school, and thank you in advance for your support.

Mrs Plant, Mrs Knight and Mr Reardon.

The Fab Year Fives

The Fab Year Fives are five year 5 pupils who have been chosen because of their excellent attitude to school to go and read, play games and talk to residents at a local care home.

Their first visit was on Wednesday 17th October; the residents thoroughly enjoyed the presence of the children and they all sang songs together.

We are hoping the children can visit fortnightly and build a bond with the residents who are suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

Christmas Shoeboxes

Y3JK/FR & Y5SC/LM need your help!

Both classes will be working with Manor Food Bank to collect empty shoe boxes to fill with treats for children who will receive limited presents over the Christmas period. We need the following items: unwanted and in good condition toys or new toys, sweets, books and food items, such as tin goods, pot noodles, pasta etc. If you can help please see Mrs Knight (Y3) or Mrs McGrath (Y5).

All items can be brought to the two classes before Wednesday 21st November 2018. Thank you for your support as always.
