Theme of the Term: Resilience

Dear Parents and Carers,

Indoor Athletics
On Tuesday we took part in the Burford Partnership Indoor Athletics with some of the children in Year 5/6. In assembly on Wednesday with Vicar Geoffrey we were discussing resilience (which is our value for the term) and it was lovely to hear the children point out others who had demonstrated resilience during the competition. Overall, we finished second, more importantly the children had a great time!

Tag Rugby
Next week we are taking three teams to Burford for the partnership Year 5/6 tournament. Please look out for permission forms coming home today in book bags. Thank you.

Reception Pyjama Party
We are looking forward to the Reception children’s pyjama party on Friday at 5:00. Thank you to the Reception teachers and staff for staying behind and putting on this exciting event for our youngest children.

Learning Hero
Riley from Elm class has been chosen as our Learning Hero this week. Riley is ready to learn, willing to have a go and tries his best on a consistent basis which is fantastic for all of us to see. Well done Riley!

Choir – date for your diary
The choir will be attending the Chipping Norton Music Festival on Saturday 7th March – more details will follow.

PTA Update

Maple Class Bake Sale did brilliantly last Friday, raising a fantastic £110.45 for their class books. Well done and thank you to everyone who donated and bought all the yummy bakes.

Don't forget to come along to our very first SWISH event this Sunday 26th Jan, 11am-1pm in the school hall. Good quality clothes of all sizes and ages have been donated and are looking for new homes so please come along for a rummage and find something new. SCOOP will be there selling dried goods, such as pasta, rice, cereal so don't forget to bring your containers to stock up. We hope to see you there! All money raised will be going towards the eco council fund.

Elm Class Bake Sale is next Friday 31st Jan, Philippa Weaver will be in contact with Elm Class to co-ordinate.

As mentioned in last week's newsletter, our next School Disco is Friday 7th Feb.
As usual FSU will be having theirs during school hours with Dancing Sally, 2-2.45pm.
Years 1-3 will be from 5.30-6.15pm in the school hall and Years 4-6 will be from 6.30-7.30pm also in the school hall where DJ Matt will be providing the tunes. Wrist bands will be on sale in the playground or at the office the week before, £2 in advance or £2.50 on the night. We hope to see lots of children there for another evening of dancing and mayhem!

You will be delighted to hear that the majority of our funds raised so far have gone towards the Chromebooks the school have already bought, so we hope the children are enjoying using them.

Many thanks for your continued help and support.

Anna, Caroline & your PTA
