Theme of the Month: Friendship

Dear Parents and Carers,

Christmas Post
The Christmas Post Office is open! If your child would like to send cards to their friends, there will be post boxes in each area where members of the school council will deliver them. Please remember to write full names and the class names to ensure that the cards arrive safely.

Class Assembly
We had two class assemblies this week. Well done to Oak and Elm for sharing all their fantastic work with parents this term. The Haka from Oak and the Continent song from Elm were particular highlights.

Letters to Father Christmas
The Reception children have written letters to Father Christmas and need help posting them at the Milton Post Office. If any parents are available to help walk the children to the post office first thing Monday morning, please see the teachers in Reception.

Boccia Ball
We sent two teams to take part in the West Oxfordshire Boccia Ball tournament yesterday and they did very well! Our A team played so well, qualifying for the Regional Finals and our B team finished second! Overall all the children had so much fun!

Christmas Choir Carol Concert
A letter went out to the children in choir regarding the Christmas Carol Concert on the 17th December. Just to clarify the concert will be held at Milton Church.

Learning Hero
Jess from Chestnut class is our Learning Hero this week. Jess has really pushed herself with her learning this week and being new to the school, has adapted to the “Wychwood Way” of learning. This means she is willing to challenge herself and land in the “pit” without giving up. Well done Jess!

Birthday Book Donations
We would like to wish Pheonix (Oak) a wonderful birthday. We hope you enjoyed your day. Thank you for donating a birthday book to your class.
If you would like to donate a book to your class, please collect a donation sticker from the school office to stick your name and a message to your class in the book.

Enjoy the Christmas Bazaar!

PTA Update

Firstly, a huge thank you goes to Sarah Wilton for our matched funding from Barclays of a fantastic £1,000 for our fireworks night. Thank you sooooooooo much for entering it and for getting it for us! That's another 4 chrome books for the school!! Whoop! Whoop!

The Cherry Class Bake Sale raised a fabulous £97.05 last Friday, well done, especially as the weather was so wet and horrid, so thank you to all bakers and to all you cake lovers, that's a few more books for Cherry Class.

Christmas Bazaar today
As you read this the Christmas Bazaar will almost be upon us and the doors are about to open.
Thank you so much for all your kind donations this morning, the children will have lots of fun choosing their presents for you and enjoying all the sweets on the Year 5 & 6 stalls too. We hope someone found a lovely home for that cute hippopotamus. Thank you in advance for all donations, helpers and bakers. This is a truly lovely, yet crazy, event and it will hopefully get us all into the Christmas spirit.

Chestnut Bake Sale is on Friday 13th December.

Many thanks as always from
Anna, Caroline & your PTA
