We are starting to make great progress on painting the classrooms and nurture room. A big thank you to all the amazing volunteers and the Year 3 dad who has kindly re-plastered most of the walls in Year 1. More volunteers are coming into school over the next few days. Thank you everyone for your support, whether through time, paint, donations etc, we couldn’t do it without you all # # #

⭐️Second hand uniform sale raised just over £70. Although it doesn’t seem much, it soon adds up and that is about equivalent to 10 new books for the library! 📚

🎨 First of two paint parties happened last night…..we’ll leave you with a little ‘before and after’ sneak peak!

Thank you all for your support! Have a lovely half term.

Thank you for the feedback received regarding stationery top ups!

We’ve come up with a plan with the teachers; these tubs will be heading into school tomorrow and the teachers will be able to top up the odd pencil, eraser, glue stick (I’m still suprised how many glue sticks our children get through! 🤯😂) etc. when required, for the children on the ‘stationery pack list’.

The Friends will then top up all stationery packs, of children signed up to the scheme, at the end of each term. So please ensure your child leaves their pencil cases at school at the end of term.

Thanks again for the feedback, that’s the only way we know if it’s not quite right and can action accordingly 👍🏻

📚🌟 Hi all, as you know the library needs an overhaul and the Friends are supporting the initiative to make this a dream library for our children! We have already started looking at ideas and ways in which you can get involved will be coming out next week. In the meantime we do need support with 'mocking up' the space available; such as CAD drawings, so we have a plan. If anyone has a link to someone who can do this for us please can you reach out via FB messenger or emailing [email protected] Thank you! The Friends x

🧠 *Quiz night 13 October *🧠
Our first fundraiser of the term, always a fun event and also a fantastic opportunity for parents old and new to get together!

Do you like quizzing? Have a few ideas up your sleeve as to how you can run it? We are looking for someone (or a few people together) to lead on organising the quiz night! You will have full support of the Friends Committee for getting out on the Friends social, posters if required and any other support you require. If you are interested please contact your class rep and we can go from there! The Friends
