It is that time of year and by now the children are revving up for their performances. Here's a double check for you:
F/KS1 – performances on Monday 10th @ 4.00pm and Tuesday 11th @ 9.30am
KS2 performances on Monday 10th @ 6.00pm and Tuesday 11th @ 2.00pm
A reminder that it is ONLY two tickets per family, per KS performance, NOT two overall or for each of the four performances. Therefore if you have children in both F/KS1 and KS2 you are able to purchase two tickets for the KS1 and two for the KS2. Thank you to those parents who have only purchased as requested and we will ensure that all parents get opportunity to see their child.
The majority of schools operate this allocation system and have done for many years, it is not just a Wembury thing. It is unfortunate that our system will not currently limit the number of tickets per person. It is also unfortunate that some families have purchased more that the requested two. Therefore we will need to reconsider a future system, to guarantee fairness and equality for all. Please be patient whilst we reassign tickets. If you have been unable to purchase tickets or if you have purchased more than two, the school will be in contact soon.
A warning - be prepared for some Camel Funk and/or lively singing!
Whilst on the topic of booking online, we have a growing number of children attending Breakfast and Activity Club, without prior booking. Please ensure this is done in advance, as a register is printed, ensuring staff can cater for the number attending. It also ensures we have an adequate ratio of staff in attendance. Your co-operation is gratefully appreciated.
You may have noticed in the news that we were invaded last week?! These cunning and vicious Vikings arrived in their long boats and took over Year 4. They brought with them fabulous wares, new ideas and crafts never seen before. However they also learnt new skills, and tried and traded new food produce. Take a look at the brilliant day they had through the following links;
The Festive Season, Christmas and many other things!
We have some super raffle prizes that will be drawn at the end of the KS2 2.00pm performance. Tickets are £1.00 each, and are on sale now, from the office, and will also be sold at each performance. So come on in and get your ticket now - you never know, you could be the lucky winner!
Don’t forget this Wednesday 5th @ 5.45pm we have the Festival of Light at the Village Hall. This will be an opportunity to get those voices tuned up for Festive singing, as well as nibbles, mulled wine and of course the important band and school choir to entertain us. We look forward to seeing you there as well as being ready and awaiting Santa’s visit to collect gifts for the less fortunate.
Christmas lunch is fast approaching - Wednesday 12th December. Don’t forget to book your child’s lunch, where they will get a scrumptious Christmas meal as well as party hats, sweets and crackers, courtesy of FroWS.
Pennywell & Auntie!
This week sees our Foundation Stage and Year 1 classes go to Pennywell, on Tuesday 4th December, where they will join in with the animal festivities. Be sure to wrap up warm and wear wellies as there will be plenty of outside activities, as well as those in the barns.
Year 2 and KS2 are off to the Theatre Royal to see Awful Auntie, by David Walliams, on Thursday 6th December. They will be required to wear school uniform and ensure they have a coat as they will need to walk from coach to theatre and back again. They are leaving after lunch and are due to arrive back around the end of the school day. We will keep you notified by text should there be a delay.
Get out those Festive Jumpers and Sparkle for our Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 14th December. Donations will go, as usual, to Save the Children. We request that children wear their jumper/top instead of their school sweatshirt, along with their usual school uniform please. We look forward to a day full of sparkle and fun!
