World Book Day – Thursday 2nd March 2017

We’re looking forward to World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March, and are inviting children to come to school dressed as a character from their favourite book. It would also be nice for them to share their favourite books and stories with their class, so if they would like, they can bring a copy of their favourite book into school with them.

We will be doing lots of reading on the day and discussing our favourite stories. We will also be taking part in role-play and other fun actiuvities around stories. Don’t forget to look on our class blogs to see all the fun things we have done!

I can’t wait to see which characters come to school on Thursday 2nd March!

Mrs Pearson, Reading Co-ordinator

P.S. If you’d like a few ideas, check out the list below!

Stuck for ideas? Why not think about:

* one of David Walliams’ characters, like The Boy In The Dress, or Gangsta Granny?
* someone from Roald Dahl’s magical books, such as Matilda, The BFG, or one of The Twits?
* a classic fairy tale character like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood (or the Wolf!), the Little Mermaid, or the Snow Queen?
* Dennis the Menace or Where’s Wally could be a good choice if you have a stripey jumper on hand?
* any of the crazy characters from Dr Suess’s books – could you be the Lorax? Or perhaps Thing 1 and Thing 2 with your sibling or best friend?
* Tintin, Peter Pan and Angelina Ballerina could be fairly easy to put together from clothes already in your wardrobe!
* what if Lowerplace is really Hogwarts? It would be amazing to see Harry, Ron, Hermione and Hagrid – or maybe even Dolores Umbridge – around school.

Don’t forget, the staff will be taking part too – I wonder who we will all be? And will anyone actually be silly enough to be Captain Underpants?

Our best Winter Fair yet!

We want to say a huge thank you to all of our children and parents, and of course to Mrs Kabir and all of the parents in the Lowerplace Parent’s Forum, for making our Winter Fair such a massive success! We all had a fantastic day with the games, stalls and food, and it was wonderful to see Father Christmas too!

We have managed to raise an amazing sum:

Well done everyone and thank you again!

Christmas dinner gets crazy

Yesterday was a blur of festive fun, and also the most important date of the season – Christmas dinner day. We offered a choice of turkey or our famous cheese quiche with all the Christmas trimmings (including Brussels sprouts, yum!) and our kitchen crew gave us all a huge surprise…

Have you ever been served dinner by a Christmas cracker?

It was a fantastic meal, and we all enjoyed it very much. Thank you Miss Carroll and your elves! Thumbs up from the school staff!

The staff all enjoyed their Christmas dinner too!

Winter Fair today!

It’s finally the day of the Winter Fair! Mrs Kabir and all of the incredible parents of the Lowerplace Parents Forum have been super busy for the last month, making sure everything is just right for the big day today!

Father Christmas is already here and is so happy to be seeing the children! He didn’t park his sleigh in the school car park, I’m pleased to say, but I’m sure I can see Rudolph munching some grass out on the school field.

There are so many stalls to visit, with games to play and things to buy, and the always-important food stalls, with everything homemade by our awesome Parents Forum!

Each class will visit at a set time during the day, and then children can come back at the end of the school day too. Parents are very welcome to come to the Fair while their children are attending, and of course at the end of the school day too.

Please see the document below for the timeslot that your child’s year group will visit the fair.

The Lowerplace Winter Fair – Friday 16th December 2016

We’re so excited for the Winter Fair! Mrs Kabir and all of the incredible parents of the Lowerplace Parents Forum have been super busy for the last month, making sure everything is just right for the big day this Friday.

Father Christmas will be arriving early on Friday morning – I wonder if he’ll park his sleigh in the school car park? We’ll have food, stalls and games for the children to visit, and we’ll be opening the doors to parents too so please do pop along, it’s always such a fun event!

Each class will visit at a set time during the day, and then children can come back at the end of the school day too. Please remember to send some money in with your child on Friday, and if they have sent back the reply slip to visit Santa, please also send in their £2 for that.

There will be a raffle at the Winter Fair, we are selling tickets for the draw in classrooms all this week, for 25p each or 5 for £1.

Please see the document below for the timeslot that your child’s year group will visit the fair.

Everything’s Christmassy at Lowerplace!

Well, we’re definitely on track for Christmas at Lowerplace. We had a hugely successful Alzheimer’s Society Elf Day last Friday (and the school elves are in the process of counting up the money – thank you so much for your generosity!) and the first performance of the Key Stage 2 show “Away With The Manger”.

We want to say a huge thank you to parents and other family members for their patience with the ticketing for the KS2 shows; as you know we have to limit the number of people in the Hall for fire safety, so ticketing the events is the only way we can be sure that we’re not over that limit.

Check below for the other exciting events at school over the next week and a half! We’re breaking up at 3:15pm on Wednesday 21st December 2016, and are back in at 8:50am on Wednesday 4th January 2017.
