The Reception parents are manning the games this year, so come and find them by the Year 6 block, where they will be running the Hook a Pirate Boat, Tin Can Alley and Dig for Pirate Treasure, to name but a few. There will also be a small bouncy castle for the little ones in this area. (It's for the infants and their younger siblings only, and is FREE).

And if you fancy a cup of tea and a slice of cake, these can be found in the cafe in front of the Year 1 classrooms. (please don't forget to donate your cakes for the cafe either on Friday or first thing on Sunday morning) of you can. Gluten Free Options will be available.

Our Inflatable Fun Run will be in the Junior playground ( you won't be able to miss it) so come and see how fast you can run from one end to the other. £1 for 2 goes is a bargain!  And if you like Nerf battles, you can try your luck on the  Nerf Shoot Out Game.

Please can you bring them to the fair first thing on Sunday ( or if shop bought, you can leave them in the PTA area on Friday). Thank you. 


Finally, please look out for our Honesty Table, by the PTA area ( opposite the Yr 3 Classrooms). Feel free to browse the toys and games on this stall. If there is something that you'd like, please make a fair donation into the PTA box and enjoy!


We hope you have a wonderful day at the Fair and would like to thank you for all you hard work and support. We cannot do it without you!


We have a special request for anyone that can braid hair (the Yr 1 mums need your help here on the Face Painting Stall) and if you have a spare gazebo that we can borrow, please do let the PTA know. Thank you The Class Reps will be asking you to donate an hour of your time on various stalls. Please please do volunteer. We can only make a success of these events with your help! Thank you.

SUMMER PARTY - Saturday 7th July at Woodcote Golf Club
Tickets are selling fast for this fabulous evening. Please put your ticket requests (and food orders) in the PTA box at your earliest convenience. This year we are lucky to have a famous magician who will be working the room, and performing up close magic, so prepare to be amazed! There are on the spot prizes, raffle prizes and a silent auction and if that's not enough, you'll have a great meal and DJ and can dance the night away. A really super end to the year! 


Thank you to everyone who kindly donated towards this collection. Thanks to your generosity, we raised a staggering £252! Thank you so much. This collection, together with the previous one in November, has raised a total of £ 512, which is fantastic! 

Hopefully by now, the children in the Infant block will have told you about their new learning area. The PTA ladies ( Nicki , Christine and Louise) spent the weekend in school recently and hopefully changed a white area into a colourful, vibrant, learning zone, complete with a Giant coming out of the ceiling!. The teachers and children seem to be very happy with it, and so are we. We have our sights set on a few other areas in the school, so if anyone is arty or handy with a paintbrush (or just fancies making tea!,) we would love to hear from you. In a few short hours over a weekend, we can transform learning areas around the school. If you are able to offer any help, please do let us know. Thank you. 

We have e-mailed the whole school with details of these parties, which will take place on Saturday 30th June. The Reception Party will be from 1.30pm to 2.30pm, the Year 1 and 2 Party will be from 3.30 -5pm and the Junior Youth Club will run from 6.30pm until 8pm!. Ticket requests are on parent mail and spare copies are in the PTA area. Can we politely ask that you put your ticket requests in as early as you can to help us with planning and catering? Thank you.
