The Mix – Wednesday 28th June – Class 3

Thank you to the parents who have already made payment and returned permission slips for this trip; if you have not yet paid, please log on to www.schoolmoney.co.uk and make payment (due today, 23/6/17). If we do not receive 90% , then the trip will not go ahead. This is in line with school policy. Thanks to FoSH who are subsidising this trip by paying for the coach.


Message from the Village Hall Trustees

Many of you will have seen the new outdoor table tennis table; unfortunately, we have lost 5 balls in the last 3 weeks and we are reluctant to keep replacing them. If your child uses the table, please ask that they treat the bats with respect and ensure balls are returned at the end of their game.

As we have some extra funds available, we will be purchasing metal goal posts to be fixed in the ground at both ends of the field.


Music Concert Friday 7th July.

There will be a Music Concert held in the Village Hall after school for anyone who would like to attend or participate. 4pm – 5/5.30pm

Please let me know if you would like to perform by 30th June so that I can get a programme together and liase with the performers.

Please let me know if you are able to help set up or serve refreshments on the day from 3pm onwards. The School Office can supply my contact details.

Entrance will be by donation.

Thank you,

Bekah Tanton
