Year 4 and Year 6 School Councillors

School Councillors from Year 4 and Year 6 have brought home a letter today about a visit to a local care home next week with the charity Friend in Deed. Please check your child’s bag.

Mrs Seagrave

Cake sale tomorrow!

Please bring donations of cakes and biscuits to the lower quad cookery room tomorrow morning.

Please also remember that money should be brought in a named purse or envelope and should be small change (i.e. 5p, 10p, 20p coins). Cakes will cost between 20p and 50p.

Thank you in advance.

Teddies wanted!

Do you have any clean, unwanted cuddly toys that you could donate to our Teddy Tombola stall at the Firside Winter Market?

If the answer is yes, please bring any donations to the school office by Friday 22nd November.

Thank you for your support.

WNDSSP Girls’ Football Tournament

Well done to the Y3/4 and Y5/6 teams who played in the WNDSSP School Games Girls’ Football Tournament at GOALS today.

Due to the very wet weather the day was shortened and we only played our 3 group games. The Y5/6 team won all their games and the Y3/4 team won two and drew one. We expect both teams to be invited back to play the other group winners for a place in the County Finals.

Children In Need on Friday

A quick reminder that it is Children In Need on Friday and we are having a bake sale. Please, please help us by bringing in donations of cakes and biscuits to be sold. Home-made items should have a list of ingredients included (a reminder that there should be no nuts or nut products included). Contributions should be brought to the cookery room in the lower quad on Friday.

Please remember, if your child has a severe allergy and wants to take part in the bake sale, we strongly recommend that you provide items suitable for your child’s allergies in a named container and give them to your child’s class teacher.

The bake sale will be held at break time (run by the School Council). Children should bring their money for the bake sale in a named purse or envelope which should be kept in their classrooms. Cakes will cost between 20p and 50p depending on the type of biscuit/cake. Please only send small change rather than £1 or £2 coins as we do not have cash to give change in school.

Children may also come to school wearing sporty clothing (no football shirts) as they will all be taking part in a work out streamed live by Joe Wicks on the Children In Need website. There is no charge for coming to school in sporty clothing.

Children may also wear Children In Need accessories if they wish to (e.g. Pudsey ears).

Thank you for your support.

Poppy display

Hopefully you have seen our poppy display that was put up in time for Remembrance Day. The School Council worked hard to paint these poppies which have been made from used drinks bottles.

We hope you will agree that it is a beautiful way to show that Firside Junior School remembers those who have lost their lives in wars over the years. As you know we have also sold poppies and other Royal British Legion accessories to raise money for this important charity and the whole school stopped yesterday at 11am to stand in silence to remember.

The display will be on the front gates for a few days so make sure you go and see it!

Year 4 Cadbury World trip

Just a reminder that deposits need to be paid by Friday 15th November to secure a place on the trip to Cadbury World. If you would like your child to go but unable to get the £10 deposit to us by Friday, please let us know as soon as possible so their name is put on the list.

Books for Schools: The Sun

We will be collecting the Books for Schools tokens from The Sun and The Sun on Sunday available between Saturday November 23rd and Saturday January 18th.

If we collect 3,500 tokens the school will receive over 100 books worth over £600!

Please send tokens in to the school office.
