Monday 4th November – Friday 8th November

Message from the Friends:  

The Second Hand Shop will be open on Tuesday 5 November at 8.40 am. 

The Bags2School collection will be on the morning of Friday 15 November.  This makes a significant contribution to our funds raising nearly £150 each term.  If you have already filled your blue bag, use a normal black bin liner. 

Our big event this term is fast approaching.  The Christmas Fair will be held on Saturday 30 November at 11 am.  It should be a fun packed morning with Christmas gifts to purchase, a Santa’s Grotto, a Christmas cake raffle, refreshments (accompanied by buskers) and the usual array of children’s stalls.  We are hoping to make this another record breaking event so please give generously.  The hamper requests will be on the board two weeks before the event and our star prize will be a Kindle HD.  If you are interested in having a stall, please contact friends@chardschool.co.uk or one of the Committee.

Music Lessons:  If your child is unwell or otherwise absent from School, please inform the music teacher involved and not the School Office.  This is clearly stated in the music contract – your contract is with the music teacher and not with the School.  Thank you. 

School Calendar:  The Calendar has been updated.  Please note change of dates for the Infant Production. 

Life Education:  We are looking forward to having the Life Education caravan with us for two days.  Parents have also been invited to visit the caravan and to find out more about their work on Tuesday 5th November 2.50pm – 3.20pm.

NSPCC Sponsor Forms:  I hope your children have enjoyed finding sponsors for the NSPCC Spelling Test!  Please could all sponsor money be returned to school by 9.am on Tuesday 5th November? 

Games Information: The After School Games Clubs this half of term will be:

  • ·         Monday              Hockey Club
