It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas…

You still have time to order your Christmas Tree, Goody bags, Family Cookbooks and Christmas Production DVD.  You can order them all from the PTFA website by clicking here

The beautiful Nordmann fir Christmas Trees come in three sizes – 4-5ft £28.00, 5-6ft £32.00 and 6-7ft £36.00 and will be ready for collection from the staff car park on Saturday 5th December from 10am to midday.  Deadline to place your order is Sunday 22nd November at 8.00pm.

The Goody Bags, which are being put together by some super Year 1 mums, will be distributed to the children on 4th December at the end of the school day.  There are two options – one for Infants and one for Juniors – and they contain some lovely Christmassy treats.  They cost £6 each and must be ordered by Monday 23rd November at 5.30pm.

Production on the super Family Cookbook is underway.  With over 70 mouthwateringly good recipes and some gorgeous pictures, this would not only be great for your family, but also make a super gift for grandparents, aunts, uncles, and family friends.  You can pre-order yours for only £10 by clicking on this link. Orders placed by 8th December will be fulfilled before the Christmas break.

With COVID restrictions in place it is not going to be possible to invite families in to watch the Christmas productions this year.  But don’t worry, you’ll still get the opportunity to see your KS1 children performing in Hey Ewe!, your Year 5 and 6 children in Bah! Humbug! and years R, 3 and 4 in a special individual class performance.  We have arranged for both plays and individual class performances to be filmed and put together on a Christmas Production DVD for you.  We will be opening the orders for these early in December - we will keep you posted!

And finally, next Tuesday (24th) the children may all come into school in their home clothes in exchange for an item for one of our Christmas Raffle Hampers.  We would love to receive...

  • non-perishable food items - this could be anything from delicious biscuits to yummy jam, mouthwatering chocolates to tangy chutney, sweet treats to crunchy crackers - and everything in between
  • pamper items - bath salts, hand cream, bubble bath, smelly candles - anything to help you relax at the end of a long day
  • bottles - wine, beer, fizz, mixers - anything in a bottle!
  • kid's gifts - toys, games, craft things - and sweets and chocolate, of course!

...and anything else you can think of which you would like to open if you won a hamper!

We will be selling tickets before the end of the month and the winning tickets will be drawn in December.  Just in time for you to take your fabulous hamper home to enjoy over the festive period.

Please remember, every goody bag, Christmas tree, cookbook and DVD you buy, every donation you make for the hamper and every raffle ticket you buy will help us reach our PTFA target for the year.  Every penny we make goes pays for something for our children.  Thank you for your support!
