WELLBEING...

ALDI Get Set to Eat Fresh - Kits for Schools; A massive thank-you to our Crestwood Park children and families who kindly provided us with the Aldi "Kit for Schools" stickers - we completed 2 posters, which we have sent away for entry in to the competition - fingers crossed we will be amongst the winners...look out for updates.

Pudsey Pyjama Day for Children In Need...

Our Crestwood Park children looked fantastic in their pyjama's and our staff were all decked out in Pudsey "spotty" attire too.  Children were able to wear their pyjama's for a £1 donation and purchase raffle tickets...details of the winners will be revealed soon.  We had lots of Pudsey related activities happening throughout the day and we will inform you of the final amount raised soon.  Thank-you to everyone who supported our Children In Need day.

Football After-school club - postponed 20th November...

Please note that Mr Barnett's after-school Football club will not be taking place on Wednesday 20th November due to a football match - we will let you know the result soon, thank-you.

Breakfast with Santa...

Once again, instead of a Christmas Fare, staff at school and Parent Voice would like to invite all children to come and have a special Christmas Breakfast during the week beginning 2nd December.  There will be 5 sessions, all starting at 8:00am and children will be offered an extensive breakfast. During breakfast, the children will have a special visitor, who will of course be bringing a sack full of goodies. Please refer to the green letter sent out via the children this week; the completed forms need to returned to school, along with payment, by Friday 22nd November. ** Please note that each morning is limited to 40 places - first come, first served - thank-you **.  We will also be selling tickets for our usual Christmas Hamper and name our Pug competition so please keep your eyes peeled for further information.

Christmas Lunch...

Our wonderful traditional Christmas lunch will be served on Wednesday 18th December. There will be a fixed menu on this day and no other food (i.e. sandwiches, jacket potatoes etc.) will be available.  All children are welcome to stay - please refer to the letter sent out this week via the children for further information, thank-you.

Swimming for Year 3 and Year 4...

Just to give you a quick heads-up, the last swimming date for Year 3 Children will be Tuesday 3rd December 2019.  Our children in year 4 will commence their swimming lessons at Crestwood School on Tuesday 14th January 2020 - we will of course send further details in due course. Many thanks.

Call out for plastic milk bottles...

Our wonderfully creative team in Reception class are seeking your help...could you please send in empty, clean plastic milk bottles (not glass or cartons) as they have a little building surprise in store .  Could you please take to Reception classroom when either dropping off or collecting - thank-you...all will be revealed in due course as to what is being made.
