Letter sent home in School bags re Children in Need as follows:-


“This year’s BBC Children in Need is on Friday 17th November. The theme this time is “Do Your Thing”. We would like to support this in school by encouraging the children to dress as “their thing”. Whether it is dancing, football or a favourite book, please send your children to school dressed as whatever “their thing” may be. As we are supporting the charity, we would welcome a donation if your child chooses to dress up.

As always in school, football colours should not be worn.”
