As you are aware, the Felling Food Network based at Felling Community Centre, supports local families by providing food, toiletries, clothes, books and toys. The foodbank is open every Wednesday and people using the service are greeted with a warm welcome and hot snacks. The Felling food network can be accessed by any adult needing support.
A group of volunteers run the network and they rely totally on donations of food, toiletries, books and toys from the public. We would therefore ask that if you have any good quality clothes, books or toys that you no longer use, the Felling Food Network would love to give them a new home. If you can bring donations into school, Kerry Bell, Family Support Worker will deliver them to the community centre. Thank you for your ongoing support.
We are looking forward to welcoming you into school for the Christmas plays. Tickets are £1.00 and will go on sale on Monday 25 November in the school office.
We will be having our usual Easter Egg competition where children will use their creativity to decorate a hard boiled egg. Children will need to bring a hard boiled egg into school on Monday 1 April. It might be handy for them to bring a spare too – they have been known to roll off the table! Parents/carers are welcome to join in the Easter fun too! If you would like to decorate an egg and enter the competition, please send your creations into school by Wednesday 3 April. Prizes will be awarded in achievement assembly on Friday 5 April.
We hope the children (and you) are enjoying the Easter Egg Challenge and are finding different things to put in your egg. We are really looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Even the school staff are having a go! There will be an Easter chocolate hamper for the person who has the most different things in the egg and also for the person who raises the most money. Please send the egg, list and sponsorship form with money to school by Friday 29 March 2019. Thank you for your continued support. Good luck everyone.
Thank you to everyone who supported our non -uniform day and sent in a donation for Red Nose Day. We raised £168 for Comic Relief. We also sold 320 red noses. A big well done to you all.
The children, staff and volunteers had a brilliant time at the pantomime and it was great to see them laughing and enjoying themselves. The children were so well behaved and represented our school brilliantly. We had lots of compliments from members of the public. We were very proud of the children.
Well done to the Year 5A Giraffes (Miss Atkinson’s class) who had the best attendance in the Autumn Term. They celebrated at the end of term with a pizza party and film afternoon. A huge well done to them. The race is now on for the Spring Term!
