Christmas Fair 2014

The Christmas Fair will start at 2.30pm on Friday 12th December. This year we are trying to ease congestion and therefore we will be having the same stalls in both the Infant and Junior halls.  All the usual games can be found at either school, as will our special visitor in a red suit!  Cakes and tea will be served in the Year 6 wing, and the raffle will be drawn in the Old hall at 4pm.

Raffle tickets can be purchased from the office during the week commencing Monday 8th December or from the school hall during the fair.  Tickets cost £1 a strip.

Children may bring a small amount of money to spend.  Charges for activities range from 10p to £1.

If you wish to, please make arrangements with your child as to where you want to meet them, e.g. New Hall/Old Hall. Children will not be able to leave before the end of the school day unless accompanied by an adult.

Christmas Fair

Christmas Fair – Friday 12th December 2.30 p.m.  

Lucky Bag stall – Could you help donate goodies to put in our ‘lucky bags’? Little treats such as sweets, crayons, homemade cookies, hair clips, marbles etc. (in fact anything that appeals to children and fits in our bags!) can be put in the white paper bags which will be sent home with your child this week. Please could you decorate/colour your bag to make it look nice, then bring them into school as soon as possible.

Water to Wine – We need wine bottle bags, empty (screw top) wine bottles and full wine bottles for our ‘Water to Wine’ stall. If you have any empty wine bottles, please could you deliver them to the school office – please do not send them in with your child.

Cake stall – Please send in any donations of cakes (homemade or bought) to the school office on the morning of the Christmas Fair (Friday 12th December).

Puzzle Day

The Happy Puzzle Company is coming to Signhills. On Wednesday 26th November and Thursday 27th November the children will take part in a 90 minute workshop where they will be able to solve puzzles as part of a group.

There will also be the opportunity for parents to visit the Happy Puzzle Company shop at the end of school, on both days, where the games and puzzles will be on sale.

In addition we are also offering a ‘Parents and Family Programme’ after school. Here the children will be able to demonstrate what they have learnt during the day, whilst adding new challenges for the whole family to solve together. It’s a thoroughly valuable and fun activity which also gives parents an insight into understanding how their children think and learn.

If you would like to attend the family session after school on Wednesday 26th November please call the office as soon as possible as places are limited. The workshop will start at 4pm and finish at 5:30pm. Refreshments will be available for parents and children before the session in the Broadway Café.
