Friday 07 June – Pyjamarama Mufti

Dear Parents/Carers


On Friday 7th June we are inviting everybody to come to school dressed in their pyjamas and make a voluntary donation of £1 in order to support Pyjamarama and Book Trust.

A Message from BookTrust

 At Book Trust we want every child to experience the warmth, joy and comfort of reading/sharing stories at bedtime. We don’t want a single child to miss out. But many children never experience the joy of a bedtime story. BookTrust is determined to reach them all to give them the very best start.

 There’s nothing better than spending the day in PJs so give BookTrust your full support on Friday 7 June and we’ll make sure no child misses out on the magic pf bedtime stories.

Kind regards

Deputy Head

Fete Poster

On Friday 14th June we will hold a mufti to support our fundraising.  We are asking that for mufti each pupil brings in something for our tombola or something we can use as a raffle prize.

We would be grateful to receive bottles, chocolate and toiletries, party bag toys or sweets, or small prizes for the games.

We will be having a cake stall and would appreciate donations of cakes on the fete day.

Grand prize tickets will be sent home with your child in the near future. If you wish to purchase or sell these, please send in the stubs and money. If you do not wish to have these – there is no obligation – please send them back to school.

It would be really great if you come to support us on Friday 21 – it is a fun night which raises money for the school.

In addition, if parents/carers are able to help run a stall on the night – please get in touch – 01933 304970.
