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 countdown!

It’s Wednesday 21st December, so it’s our last day of school and it’s only 3 days until Christmas Day!

This morning, Mr Moore drew the winners of the iPad and Kindle offered as prizes for completing the Free School Meal Parental Consent form sent out to all parents a few weeks ago. The winners are:

The family of Muddah in RHL has won the iPad Air 2

The family of Zain in 1L has won the Kindle Touch

Congratulations! Please come to see Mr Moore in the Junior building at the end of the school day to collect your prizes!

Today we have Pyramid Productions in school with their pantomime “Peter Pan”, which looks like a lot of fun.

School ends at 3:15pm on Wednesday 21st December 2016. We have a teacher training day in January so school starts for pupils on Wednesday 4th January 2017 at 8:50am.

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!

Countdown to Christmas!

It’s Tuesday 20th December, so we have 1 more school day until the Christmas holidays and it’s only 4 until Christmas Day!

This morning we’ll be celebrating all the children who have been Green All Term with a fun reward session.

Children are also welcome to wear Christmas jumpers or other festive clothes today.

We have a festive craft morning for parents of Year 1 – 6 from 9:15am to 10:15am in classrooms today, so please pop in to that if you get the chance. If your child has won the Green All Term award, they may be attending the reward event instead, in which case you are very welcome to join them there.

We’re also looking forward to Christmas Dinner today, and then the children will have parties in classrooms in the afternoon. We are going to have so much fun today!

On Wednesday 21st December, we’re wearing uniform as usual, and will be welcoming Pyramid Productions to school with their pantomime “Peter Pan”. All children in school will be watching the show.

Today is quite quiet on the celebration front, we’ll be festive again tomorrow. This afternoon, our learning mentor Mrs Kelly will be tallying the figures and letting the classes know who’s been Green All Term as those children will have their Good To Be Green reward session tomorrow morning.

If your child would like to come to school in a Christmas jumper or other festive clothes, they’re very welcome to on Tuesday 20th December.

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.

Timetable for classes to come 2016

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.
