Dear Parents,

 

Thank you to everyone who came and supported the PTA AGM and Quiz Night last Friday.  We had a very entertaining evening followed by a marvellous curry provided by Chutneys Indian Restaurant in Wimbledon.  A particular thank you to the excellent quizmaster Mr. Morse (a school parent) for planning and delivering the challenging quiz for us – we hope you all enjoyed yourselves!

Easter Egg Raffle

The School Council will be holding an Easter Egg raffle on Thursday 4th April. Raffle tickets will be on sale for the children from Tuesday 19th March for 50p a ticket.   We would appreciate any donations of eggs, big or small, you may like to give.  Please could these be sent to the office by Thursday 28th March.  As this is a raffle, please be aware that not every child will win an egg. All proceeds will go to the School Council fund and the children will vote on what they would like the money to be spent on for the school. Thank you

PTA News - Spring Bop

Just a reminder that the Spring Bop is next Friday (22nd March).  Session 1 is from 3.30 - 4.30 for Years 1, 2 & 3 and tickets are £4. PLEASE NOTE: children for the first session have their dancing clothes in a separate bag - they will change in their classrooms before going to the dance! The children are to be picked up from their usual pick up points.  Session 2 for Years 4, 5 & 6 is from 4.45 - 5.45pm and tickets cost £2.50. Please bring money for the tuck shop! Children in session 2 can be collected from the new hall.  The last day to buy tickets is Wednesday 20th March! No tickets will be available at the dance. 

A Poplar Cook Book

We all enjoyed the variety of International food that was brought into school last Friday as part of our Book Week celebrations and are hoping to put together and sell a cook book with a selection of our favourite recipes from around the world. If you have a recipe to contribute, please email it to poplarprimarypta@gmail.com  Lastly, do you have any cutlery sets you no longer want? If so, we would love to receive them. Please place in the large bins outside the PTA cupboard. Thank you! 

Whole School Language Target

We would like to let you know about our Whole School Target which we are all working on this year.  A copy of our target has been sent with this Friday Flyer. We are aiming to increase the children’s vocabulary and understanding of knowledge of words.  The children and staff have identified what we are doing well and what we could do better.  We will share our progress with you during the year.

Eco News written by Eco Reps 

The Year 4 Eco Reps have been checking how many children are bringing non-reusable water bottles to school.  Well done to Purple, Orange, Red, Rowan, Oak, Beech, Indigo and Yellow classes for 100% use of multi-use bottles.  We would encourage all other classes to improve their results over the next month.
