Children’s Book Fair – The Travelling Book Fair will be in school next Monday 10th February until Friday 14th February from 3.15pm until 3.45pm.  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.  You will already have received a leaflet showing a small selection of the titles available.


Willow Class Assembly – This class assembly will take place next Wednesday 12th February starting at 9.10am and parents are welcome to attend.


Barnardo’s Egg-citing Challenge – Today your child will bring home a leaflet about this fundraising challenge where they take care of a hard-boiled egg for a week, decorating it and giving it a name.  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 – Thank you for your responses to our questionnaire.  By popular demand we are going with Fencing for KS2 at 8am – 8.40am each week starting Tuesday 4thMarch 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 will be 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.
