Makaton are now doing ‘sign of the week’ on their website, Facebook and Instagram pages. You can subscribe via the website (www.makaton.org) to receive it every week via an email. Lots of free downloads are also available as well as some with a small charge such as signs and symbols for several books including Gruffalo and Room on the Broom.

The School Christmas Fair will be on Saturday 3rd December from 12 noon. Please do come along to support the Friends of Manor Green. The school fairs are the biggest fundraising activity for both the schools. So that we have plenty of items to sell at the fair we will be collecting on the following dates in exchange for your child not having to wear school uniform:

  • Friday 25th November—Bottles, Toiletries and unwanted gifts
  • Friday 2nd December—Chocolate (for the Chocolate tombola) and CAKES!!!

In addition please can you make up some jars of sweets and send them in at any
time before the fair. Thank you.

The school photographer was here on Wednesday and photos will be sent home shortly. Please follow the instructions on the pack to place an order and make a payment. We send off the orders still sealed up so are unable to give change. Don’t forget they make lovely Christmas presents.

We have a large amount of lost property, including coats. If your child has lost anything do come in and have a rummage. We do try to re-unite the lost items with the child but can only do this if they are named.
