What an Appeal!

As you may have seen walking up the drive in the mornings and afternoons, a few of our brave Year 6's have been enduring the elements throughout November in order to take part in this year's Poppy Appeal...

Due to ever-shrinking budgets, we rely heavily on the hard work of our PTA to fund essential parts of the children's learning in school i.e. computers, reading resources and classroom equipment. Currently, the response to parents volunteering to help out at the Christmas Fair has been such that it won't be able to take place. Please, if you are able to help with the Christmas Fair on Saturday 10th December contact Nicki Palmer on 07854 685261.

Colour and cakes has been the theme so far this morning! A big thank you to all parents donating cakes to be sold for the CIN cause. We'll publish the total raised as soon as it is available.

Due to the generous supply of cakes we will be selling cakes at the end of the school day - so parents please bring your pennies!

Here's a few highlights from the morning's fundraising activities...

Key Stage 1 classes - Egypt, South Africa and Kenya - have started a new IPC topic on 'Food'. Having previously visited a cafe during their launch day, they noted all of the successful features of the establishment in order to set up a competitive venture for themselves - McQuigg's watch out!

Today, Key Stage 1 trekked off to Westonbirt Arboretum for their first school trip of 2011/12. The trip acts as a sensory stimulus for a series of writing projects to be followed up in school over the coming days and weeks, but also complements their IPC topic this term of Food (outside of the children's conventional understanding of it being purely a human need).
