The PTFA met last week to discuss the upcoming events for the year.
Unfortunately the bingo night and school disco have had to be cancelled this year but we still have other ideas which we feel will really benefit the children.
We have decided to fund birthday afternoons for the pupils in school. These will happen on the last afternoon of each month where birthday celebrations will take place for those who have had a birthday that month. A special party lunch will take place in the hall and also in class. We are conscious that so many children will miss the opportunity to have a birthday party but this is something we can accommodate within the children’s class bubbles. Please do not however send in any cakes or sweets to give out as this cannot happen unfortunately.
We will also be fundraising for a school reading app which will replace reading books in class. This app will act like a virtual library and we are keen to support all children with their reading.
We will be fundraising through different ways:
- Football cards. These are on sale now with 1 card per class. The price is £2 a team with the winner of each card winning £20. The other £60 comes straight back to school. Please send any money in a named envelope with your top 3 teams. Teams will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Newcastle Utd—Aston Villa—Manchester Utd—Liverpool—Leeds Utd—Arsenal—Middlesborough
Notts. Forest—Tottenham—Chelsea—Wimbledon—QPR—Sheffield Wednesday—Blackburn
Everton—West Ham—Southampton—Coventry—Bolton—Man City—Burnley—Blackpool– Wolves
Wigan—Rangers—Preston—Swansea—Crystal Palace—Sheffield Utd— Aberdeen—Hibernian
- Non-uniform days. Please look out for our next one taking place on 9th October 2020.
- Competitions. We are looking to hold competitions throughout the year. We will keep you informed of these as they happen.
- Christmas Gifts—Instead of the Christmas Craft Fair. The children will be designing their own Christmas cards, gifts and tea towels which you can purchase as gifts.
- The School Lottery—Unfortunately the numbers of people taking part in our lottery has dropped significantly. Please if you can sign up as we can make a lot from it and you have the chance to win back.
- The Giving Machine— This is money for school for nothing. Please use the giving machine to go through for all your purchases!
