Newsletter 13.2.14

Children’s Book Fair – The last day for The Travelling Book Fair will be Friday 14th February from 3.15pm until 3.45pm so please call in to see what is available if you have not already done so.  The commission from sales at the fair allows us to buy books for the classroom and library so every book you buy helps us to get new books for the school.


Barnardo’s Egg-citing Challenge –If you would like your child to take part in this, we suggest this is done over half term with any donations received put into the envelope provided and brought into school during the week after half term.  The names of all children who take part will be entered into a draw with the prize of a Barnardo’s bear.


Early Morning Activities – Please return the permission slip if you would like your child to take part in either of these activities.  There will be Fencing for KS2 at 8am – 8.40am each week starting Tuesday 4th March until Tuesday 1st April and Multisports (a combination in mini form of all the activities available) for KS1 at 8am – 8.40am each week starting Wednesday 5th March until Wednesday 2nd April. Leaflets have been given out concerning these sessions for you to request a place.  The cost of these sessions will be £20 per child (5 weeks at £4 per session) with cheques payable to Oxfordshire County Council.


Wildlife Area – Working party day, Sunday 16th Feb 2014, 10 am – 4pm

Please do provide your support if you can – even for just an hour or two – send the men and the children out while Sunday lunch is being cooked!

Wellies are a must, gloves recommended and wheelbarrows / shovels would be great.  We have made excellent progress so far with great support from parents.  Please help us finish the job ready for Spring.  If you can, let Helena know if you will be able to help at or on 07798 702041.  Thank you!


Lunchtime Supervisors – There is still a vacancy for a Lunchtime Supervisor 12.00 to 1.00pm after half term. Please ask in the school office for more details and an application form if you are interested in this position.


Sainsbury’s Active Kids – We are again collecting these vouchers and would be very grateful if you could send them in so that we can claim free resources for the school.


Half Term – I hope you all have a good half term break and that the weather enables you to get out and about.  School starts again on Monday 24th February.
