December 2018

The weeks leading up to Christmas are always a busy time in school and this year is no exception.

Radio City - Mission Christmas
This year, we are a drop-off point for Radio City’s Christmas appeal to support local children. They are looking for new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0 to 18. If you are able to buy an extra present for a child in need, simply hand it in at FJS before the 17th December and we will make sure it gets to the right place. Thanks!

Christmas Bingo
Our Family Christmas Bingo Evening was a great success. Almost 200 people joined in the fun with Play Your Cards Right, Forefield Bingo Lingo as well as traditional games of bingo. 'Thank you' to everyone who made the evening run so smoothly. We are also extremely grateful to everyone who donated chocolates and toiletries so that we were able to make some lovely hampers as prizes. The event raised £850 and every penny will benefit our children in school.

Christmas Jumper Day
On Friday, 14th December, Mrs Brook’s Year 5 class will be presenting their class assembly – with a Christmas theme! She has invited all children (and any adults in the audience) to join in with the Christmas spirit by swapping their school jumper for a Christmas one on that day! 5M will also be collecting donations for ‘Save the Children’ if you can spare any change.

Children dressed in Christmas costumes.Christmas Production
Following weeks of rehearsals, during lunchtime and after school, our Lower Junior Drama Club will be giving two performances of this year's Christmas production, “Tinsel & Teatowels”. The first, at 1.30pm on Monday, 17th December, will be for a specially invited community audience. The children will then perform again for their family members on Tuesday, 18th December at 7:00pm.

Christmas PartyChristmas Parties
Our Christmas parties will be held on the afternoons of Wednesday 19th December, for Years 3 & 4, and Thursday 20th, for Years 5 & 6. On the day of their party, children may bring in party clothes in a separate bag, to get changed into after lunch. They may also bring in their own party food on an individual plate, covered with tinfoil and labelled with their name. While children may bring a drink of juice, please do not bring any fizzy drinks.

Christmas Holidays
School will close at 2.00pm on Friday 21st December for start of the Christmas holidays. Children return to school on Tuesday 8th January, following a staff training day on Monday 7th.

May we take this opportunity to wish all Forefield families and friends a very merry Christmas, and a happy and prosperous New Year in 2019.
