Friday 18th March is SPORT RELIEF day. We will be having a special sporty day at school with a variety of activities. Children may wear their favourite sports clothes to school in exchange for a donation to Sports relief. We now have sports relief wrist bands and softballs for sale at £1 each.

Easter is fast approaching!! We have some great Easter fun and games planned but we need your help. We would like you to send into school one medium and one small Easter Egg. There is no need to name the eggs unless your child has a specific dietary requirement. All the eggs are pooled and then used for our Easter Egg hunts and for prizes.

kendra-fundraiserThis lovely young lady is Kendra Betchley, the daughter of one of our teaching assistants. Kendra decided to sell some of her old books and toys to raise money for Manor Green Primary School. Kendra was helped along by a relative who agreed to match her total. Between them, and with a bit of rounding up, they raised £1,000 for the school!!! So well done Kendra, and thank you very much. There is a letter from Kendra in reception for you to read if you would like to know more.

Friday 4th March is World Book Day – we would like the children to come to school in their pyjamas with their favourite bedtime story to share.

You can now find the Calculation Policy on the school website. If you do not have access to the internet and would like a paper copy of the policy please let the office know and one will be sent home to you.

Manor Green College has asked for our help. They need as many of us as possible to vote for them in the Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme. They are hoping to win a grant to install an outside gym. Voting takes place in-store between 27th Feb and 6th March. As many of our children transfer to the college this amazing facility would be available for them to use should the college win the grant.
