Quiz Night

A big thank you to all the staff, parents & friends of the school who attended the quiz night last Friday.
We made an amazing £320.07 and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable night. Photos are on the Friends page of the school website.

2013 Summary

The Friends have had a fantastic year raising in excess of £3,800 for the school with the many events that have been organised throughout the academic year.

Along with funding carried over from last year, the Friends have purchased the Coomber equipment for Year 2, the sound system for the school and are also financing the purchase of a projector for the school.
The Friends have also financed the children’s Christmas party and the leaver’s party and contributed to the panto, summer term trips and the end of school trips.

Without the help of you, the parents, we would not be able to organise and fund the events that we do and contribute to the education of our children. We would love to see some new faces and hear new ideas in September. Details of our next meeting will be added to the calendar and the newsletter, so keep an eye out.

Thank you!

Christmas Week

Happy Christmas!

Our Christmas fun started on Tuesday. First we had our Christmas lunch and then we went to see Snow White at The Swan Theatre. It was really good and we sang, booed and laughed all the way through. Wednesday was Christmas party day. We visited Father Christmas in his grotto and we were all given a present. We must have been good this year! The Friends made us a delicious party lunch and then we played games. We played Pass the Parcel, Musical Statues and lots of other games.

We have had a lovely first term and are all looking forward to a well earned holiday.

Easter Celebrations

We had a very exciting end of term at Ombersley. On Tuesday The Friends put on an Easter Egg hunt for us. Then on the last day we all wore our Easter Bonnets and Easter Hats and went down to Ombersley Church for our Easter Service. As usual, it was wonderful and we were all very proud of the children’s performances ~ Year 1 sang ‘The Seed Song’ beautifully.

Take a look at the photographs, we all looked Absolutely Fabulous….

We hope you all have a Very Happy Easter, enjoy a good rest over the holidays ~ the children all definately deserve one, they have all worked extremely hard this term!

We look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 9th April for an exciting new term with a brand new topic.

Year 1 Bake off

Thank you to all those ‘Super Mums’ who stood in the freezing cold selling cakes and raffle tickets ~ you were wonderful. Thank you also to everyone who made and bought cakes. They were nearly all gone by the time we came out of school!

Miss Cartwright had the golden ticket and was thrilled with her gorgeous cup cake ~ she did share it with the rest of the staff!!
