Mayhem & Madness

Anti-bullying Week – FuNky HAIR & Pudsey’s Children in Need

Thank you all for your generosity and support with funky hair and CiN last Friday – what an amazing effort and turn out.  Once the money raised has been counted we will let you know the totals. Below are just a few snapshots of the day.

Remembrance & Recycled Tree

As mentioned in my previous Blog, we made our Christmas tree from cardboard boxes this year. Having just carried out our Remembrance assembly, and wanting to display the beautiful array of poppies, that had been made by the children, what better way to ensure a longer use, and a beautiful display of their poppies than to decorate the tree! Further decorations, that are traditionally more for Christmas, will be added as the weeks go by. Don’t forget to make one so that it can adorn our tree.

Christmas is a Busy Time of Year – please check through the dates below so you do not miss out on events. (There is a brief table overview below.)

 

Food donations

Thank you to those who have started to bring in food donations, as per my Blog 28.10.19 (Click here for ideas). We would like to collect all remaining food donations, for Harvest & Christmas this week, in the lead up to the KS1 Christingle service this coming Friday 22nd November 1.30pm at St.Werburgh’s. Please hand in to the school office or your child’s class teacher. Thank you.

 

Performances  

This year we are spreading performances out again, over the year.

The KS1/EYFS Christmas performance of the Bossy King will take place on Tuesday 17th December at 9.30am and 4.00pm. (You will be notified when you are able to book tickets.)

 

KS2 will be holding a Christmas Sing-A-Long, in the school hall, on Thursday 19th December, from 2.00pm where teas & mince pies will also be on sale. Parents and family members welcome.  

 

Years 3, 4 & 5 will provide a performance around Easter and Year 6 in the summer. Obviously throughout the year there will be a number of other opportunities where parents will be invited in to share and celebrate in their child’s learning. 

The next of those is this Thursday 21st November, during our International Week.

F/KS1 open morning @ 9.30am-10.00am

KS2 open morning @ 10.00am-10.30am

 

Robin Hood/Medieval Mufti Theme

Wembury Drama Group support the school annually, and specifically FroWS, with takings from their show on Friday 6th December. The pantomime this year is Robin Hood and we would like to get into the spirit of things by holding a mufti day of Robin Hood & Medieval theme on that day. (Children can then wear their costume to the performance in the evening, if going.)

Tickets are available to purchase from Knighton Stores at £6.00 per adult & £3.00 per child. Our support will ensure this continues to be a spectacular and fun evening out! CLICK HERE for more details.

Village Hall Tree Lighting

Each year Terry Clarke organises the Christmas Carol Concert in the Village Hall on Wednesday 4th December.  We hope that you are to support this event and if possible bring a gift for Santa's empty sack. This year Santa will deliver all gifts to the 'Little Harbour' Children's Hospice. Their residents’ age range can be anything up to age 22 years, so your gift may be suited for a child or an adult. However, we have to avoid introducing infection, therefore all gifts must be new and unused.

Details of the event will appear in the Wembury Review or can be seen in posters circulated.

New Year’s Day Swim

Again another event organised by Terry Clarke, our resident caretaker, who celebrates his 85th birthday this weekend! Parking will be FREE.  The event starts at 1pm for social interaction, entertainment and competitions etc. and will be a good way to burn off some of those Christmas calories!

There will be a Fancy Dress competition for adults, and under 12 yrs, so dress up in your most outrageous costume, 'Group' entries more than welcome.

Remember there will be collection buckets at the ready for your donations. This year all donations will help support the 'Tiny Babies Ward’ (Neo-natal ward) at Derriford Hospital who need to replace some outdated equipment.

The 'prizes' are exceptional and well worth winning, so make every effort to Dress Up....even if you are not taking the plunge! This will take place at about 2pm when spectators will give a count down.  (Inclement weather may prevail so make sure you are prepared.)

Rucksack Plea

Many 'Homeless' people, sleeping rough, carry all their possessions in a variety of plastic bags because they have nothing else to use. To avoid this indignity the 'Shekinah Mission' is hoping to give each client

a Rucksack for Christmas. If you have a Rucksack that is no longer wanted and you would like to donate it to 'Shekinah' please pass it into Reception where Terry will collect it. Any size will do but the larger the better. 

Thank you - Terry
