Dear parents and carers
I hope you all enjoyed our Christmas Fair last night – what a fabulous way to start the festive season! Thank you to the PSFA for their determination to put on a great event, and thank you to Father Christmas for paying us a special visit.
The next two weeks in school are extremely busy, and hopefully very enjoyable for everyone. We have Christmas lunch on Wednesday next week – children can wear a Christmas jumper or a Christmas accessory with their school uniform for this. It would be great to have as many children as possible having school lunch; the options will be roast turkey and trimmings, vegetarian Christmas Wreath, followed by white chocolate snowball cookies or chocolate rice-crispy Christmas pudding. It sounds delicious!

A reninder that over the festive period we are asking for donations toward the local Baby Bank, to enable them to make up packages for Christmas. It would be fabulous if you were able to bring in any of the items below either on your way into a Christmas performance or any day during December.
