November Newsletter 2013

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Welcome back to everyone after half term, and we are back to one of the busier half terms, on the lead up to Christmas.

We have several events coming up over the next half term, including the Ladies’ Evening, the Christmas Nativity and the Carol Concert, led by our Junior children, and the Dance Festival.


Thank you to all the grandparents who attended the event last month, and thank you to the adults who helped with the event.  A special thank you to the children who organised and ran the whole event.  They showed great endeavour and initiative throughout the afternoon.


We will be joining other schools and community groups from Thornton for the annual parade to the war memorial, meeting at Thornton Library car park at 10.30am on Sunday 11th November.


On Wednesday 13th November, the classrooms will be open for parents to see their child’s work, from 3pm onwards.


We are hosting a Ladies’ Evening on Thursday 14th November, at which there will be a Noosa fashion show, stalls for jewellery including Stella and Dot jewellery, candles, cakes and handbags and many other gift ideas.

Ladies can also treat themselves to beauty and therapy treatments at vastly reduced prices!

Tickets are available from school, at £7.50 each or £13 for two, and this also includes a choice of fresh poached salmon or quiches with salad, and a glass of bubbly! And free gift bag!

As Wyre Sport school of the year, we were invited to the Lancashire Sports awards.  We finished third in the category of school of the year, which we are very proud of achieving, considering there are 641 schools in Lancashire!

Thank you to the children, staff and parents for your contributions to participation in sport.


The children via the School Council would like to support Children In Need this year, and in order to do this, we have agreed to raise funds for the charity by letting children come to school in their pyjamas (or onesie, or dressing gown etc), in exchange for a minimum donation of £1.

Children can bring their uniform (and coats) in case of wet weather.
