Open afternoons for Reception admissions in 2022
We are holding two open afternoons for prospective parents to come in and visit our Reception class and meet Mrs Horton. We have produced some flyers advertising these afternoon’s which we want to distribute to all the local nurseries and pre-schools. If anyone is able to volunteer to distribute these flyers for us, please come and see Mrs Thirlaway in the office. Thank you.
We are holding a Harvest Festival in school just for the children next week. Please could you send in a donation of tinned or dried goods that we can then donate to the Stratford Food Bank. Please bring items in on Thursday 14 October. Thank you
Supervising children in the Morning
Please can you ensure your child stands with you in the queue while waiting for the school to open in the morning and discourage them from climbing on the railings or playing in the area in front of the vehicle access gates.
We have two plastic outdoor sheds which we no longer require and are offering them free to anyone that would like them. A photograph is attached.
Forthcoming PTA events
100 Club – Would you like to be in with a chance of winning a monthly cash prize of up to £25? Wolverton School PTA is excited to launch its new 100 club! The numbers 1-100 are available to buy, and each number will cost £1 per month which can be paid via PayPal (for this school year, a one-off payment of £10 per number can be made to cover the months of October to July), and one number will be drawn to receive the cash prize each month! If you would like a number please email email@example.com or message Sarah Davies directly to choose your preferred number. You can of course buy more than one number to improve your chances of winning, and friends and family are welcome to buy numbers too! Good luck everyone!
Hallowe’en film night – once again instead of our usual Hallowe’en disco the PTA are organising a film night after school on Thursday 21 October. The children can come to school dressed in costumes, but no scary masks or separate accessories like wands or brooms will be allowed. More information on how to buy tickets will be available next week.
Christmas card fundraiser – children should have started to bring home their Christmas Card artwork for you to see. If you would like to see this artwork made in to a Christmas card or wrapping paper, orders need to be placed by 18 October.
Comic relief – We are holding a dress down day for Comic relief on Friday 12 November. A Just Giving Page will be set up for donations in exchange for wearing non-uniform.
Christmas event – As we cannot hold our normal Christmas fayre again this year the PTA will be organising a Christmas event on 3 December for the children. Further details will be available soon.
We are still looking for some more children to take up guitar lessons. If any children from Year 2 upwards are interested in learning the guitar, please speak to Mrs Thirlaway in the office for further information.
Walk to School Month
October is International Walk to School Month and Living Streets are asking all primary schools to get involved with their fantastic campaign. Living Streets are asking children to think of an animal or natural habitat endangered due to climate change and walk, wheel, scoot, cycle or Park and Stride to school through the month of October to protect it. Children can decorate their bags, scooters or bikes as their chosen animal to help spread awareness.
By being active on our journeys to school, we reduce our carbon emissions, supporting natural habitats and animals across the globe.
For more information about how to get involved simply follow this link https://www.livingstreets.org.uk/get-involved/campaign-with-us/international-walk-to-school-month
