Dear Parents/carers

Big Question:

Why do you think Jesus had to die on the cross?

Each week we focus on a Big Question in school. This forms the focus of worship and discussions. We thought we would share this each week on the newsletter so that you can chat about it at home.

Non-uniform for Eli:

Thank you very much for all your generous donations on Monday. We were able to give Eli’s parents £482.42.

On top of this a group of kind parents have got together to hold a tuck shop on Friday 8th April to raise more funds. On this tuck shop there will be:

  • bags of sweets 50p – £1.00
  • cartons of pop 50p
  • popcorn 50p
  • homemade varieties of fudge at £2.50 per bag

This will take place after school at 3pm under the canopy near the main entrance.

Thank you very much for your support.

Easter scene competition:

After years of brilliant entries, we are running our Easter egg competition again. This involves you creating a design using hard boiled/blown eggs. The theme this year is ‘Best of British’ to tie in with celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee. Ideas can incorporate landmarks, food, famous people, transport, basically anything linked to Britain. Please bring your entries into school on Monday 4th April where they will be judged, and a prize will be awarded for the winner from each class.

Easter Egg raffle:

We are having an Easter Egg raffle on Thursday 7th April. Each child will be given a raffle ticket and then we will draw the winning tickets in the hall at Worship. There is no charge for the tickets, but if you would like to donate any eggs please drop them off at school before the big event. SMASH are going to provide a fabulous first prize too!

Tea-Time Club:

Easter 🐣 Fun: Tuesday 5th – Friday 8th April

Let’s get ready for the excitement of Easter by making and creating. 

Crafts, games, fun and laughter.

Places fill up fast, so please book in advance.

To book your child’s place, call or email the school office. 

Thank you! Mrs Wharton and Miss Hacking 

SMASH:

SMASH make a real difference to our school. They run activities that the children really love and raise important funds for our school which pay for special extra pieces of equipment! SMASH are looking for someone to take over. If you think you could be the right person, please get in touch to discuss what the role entails.

Playtime contributions:

If you are having a clear out over the Easter holidays, we are on the lookout for items we can add to our playground class kits. I will add more details next week.

SMASH Film Night on Wednesday 4th May.

Come and watch Encanto!

Our last Film Night was cancelled due to COVID restrictions. If you bought a ticket for that event this will be automatically transferred over to this Film Night unless you let us know otherwise. If you would like your child to attend this event, but have not bought a ticket before, you will have the opportunity to purchase one when the £3.00 ticket price is added to ParentPay.

Training Days 21/22 reminder:

Here are the training days for the next school year:

Thursday 5th May 2022  
Monday 25th July 2022  
Tuesday 26th July 2022  

Please don’t forget that school will be closed for Jubilee Day on Friday 27th May.

Yours sincerely, Miss J. Barker
