Bedtime for Monsters

Today, we introduced our new topic by reading the story ‘Bedtime for Monsters’. In the story monster goes on an adventurous journey. As part of our topic lessons next week, we would like the children to talk about what a monster might look like, places it may go and things it could do. Therefore we have sent a ‘monster’ home to go on an ‘adventure’ with the children. Please can the children bring in their ideas on Monday – see letter below for information

Raffle Tickets

This year, Woodthorpe Friends are asking our families to help sell raffle tickets. Today your child will have brought home a book of 5 raffle tickets, in an envelope, to sell to family, neighbours and/or friends. Each ticket is £1 and a book is £5.

Once sold, the money and completed ticket stubs must be returned together to class teachers. Please return them in the envelope provided, with your child’s name and class on the front, that way we can keep track of the highest sellers. The highest seller in each class will receive a prize. A voucher for a Family Splash session at Cocks Moor Wood Leisure Centre will be given for the most sold in the school.

If you are unable to sell the tickets for any reason, please return them to your child’s class teacher, so they can be redistributed. If you wish to sell more than one book, you can email and we will get them to your child. Alternatively, where possible, a Woodthorpe Volunteer will also be available at the end of the school day to hand out extra books.

To be entered into the draw, all raffle ticket stubs and money will need to be returned by Monday 12th December.

Rock Up – Monday 18th – Update

As a result of the extreme weather conditions, children no longer need to wear long sleeves and trousers for our trip to Rock Up (and Bowling) tomorrow as previously requested. They must however wear suitable, safe clothing to climb in such as sports shorts and t-shirts – no vests/ strappy/ cropped tops etc as they will need material under where the harness will be as opposed to it touching their skin. Socks and trainers must also still be worn.

Please pass this message on to other parents as I am aware not everyone will see this post.

Thanks, Miss Edwards 🙂
