Horse racing and fish & chips night! Friday 28th April 7pm. Bring your own booze! So much fun! It is a giant interactive board game in the hall. 8 children can participate in each round 6 jockey behind the horses and 2 controlling the dices 1 coloured to indicate which horse to move and one numbered to see how many steps. We usually have time for 7 rounds so everyone who wants to can participate, each round is more fun as we go along, hurdles, horse auctions etc. Children and parents can bet on a horse or on multiple horses at the start of each race, during the race school staff will work out the "odds" half the money from ticket sales in each race goes to the PTFA fund to support the school the other half is divided equally between all the winners in that round who bought a ticket in the winning horse's colour. Each round the stake gets higher so are the winnings, should you bring enough cash and win the auction as the highest bidder you could be the proud owner of a horse for a duration of a race and oh boy if your horse wins you win big! Letters/emails regarding prices and order forms for the fish & chips dinner will go out nearer the time, tickets will be sold in the office and are on a first come first serve basis, we can accommodate about 100 people. Soft drinks, sweets, chocolates will be sold in the hall along with some raffle tickets to win small prizes such as wine, cosmetics, candles etc. Looking forward to seeing you there. PTFA


Our first event will be a CAKE RAFFLE starting on the 21st April and will continue every following Friday for the rest of the year.
Each week parents can sign up to volunteer to bake a cake, if you have a date in mind please let us know here. Cakes, cupcakes, brownies etc. all much appreciated and it will support the school, if you need a cake box to present your bakes in they are available in the office please remember to pick one up a few days before the raffle if needed. Cakes to be dropped off Friday morning on the playground. We will have 1 cake every Friday to be won by one of the children, raffle tickets will be 20p each and available to buy from PTFA members on the school playground only on Fridays at drop off time between 8:20-8:50am for that day's raffle only. The raffle is drawn by school staff during the day and the winner will be notified before the end of the day to collect their cake from the office at 3pm. Let the bake off begin!
