SATs Breakfast café for Year 6 – During SATs week we will be running the SATs breakfast café in the hall. The café will open at 8.30am and will serve toast and a variety of cereals and fruit juices. If your child would like to attend, please ensure he/she arrives promptly at 8.30am and enters through the side hall door.


Puffin Class Cake Sale – Big thank you to all the parents who baked cakes, manned the stall and helped clear up. Special mention to Caroline Lock for the ‘choccy bonanza’ raffle cake, and congratulations to Scarlett’s mum for winning it! We made a fabulous £172 which will go towards our end of term trip.

Gym Leotards – Please can you return any Gym Leotards which you still have at home to Miss Blake ASAP. We still have 6 which have not been returned!!


Athletics Club – There will be no athletics club on Monday 18th May due to Quad Kids competition.


FSA News

Fitz Big Odd Ride Friday 15 May 5 – 8pm, Odd Down Cycle Circuit (exclusively booked for Fitz!)

You and your family bring bikes, trikes, scooters, ride-ons (& HELMETS…part of the agreement with the track), we chill out and chat, we ride around the fabulous track as and when we feel like it (also a BMX track available), we have silly grins! If you don’t have a bike or can’t get yours there, there’s a selection of tandems, recumbents, road bikes, mountain bikes, children’s and single speeds available to borrow for free! No excuses!

Cost is £5 for a family ticket (please do not bring pets)

Bring a picnic and a rug (no BBQ’s please). We may sell ice lollies if it gets hot again!

Please send your £5 (cash or cheque payable to ‘Fitzmaurice School Association’) into the office in an envelope labelled ‘Big Odd Ride’ with your child’s name, class and a contact number on it ASAP.


Strawberry Fair (Sat 20 June 11am – 3pm) HELP!!

We have brilliant new (and familiar!) attractions booked but now it’s time to get the money raising stalls sorted too.

We’re looking for individuals, friends, teams (anyone with a pulse basically!) to do an hour’s stint on a stall to make sure everything runs smoothly. There’s plenty of choice available from Fitz Fashion Finds to Coconuts, Jumble Jars to Inflatable Football, Cafe Yum Yum to Angry Birds!

** If anyone has an idea for a new stall they’d like to run then we’d love new ideas to refresh too!**


Other Fair appeals at this stage:

·         Plants: we’ll be lacking Post Office Bill & Jill’s amazing donations this year so anything anyone can cultivate (legally!) over the next few weeks to donate on the day would be much appreciated.

·         Jumble Jars:  please start collecting empty lidded jars and fill them with tiny toys, sweets or similar (no nuts please). We’ll let you know when we need them.

·         Bunting:  we make every child’s strawberry picture into bunting for Cafe Yum Yum. Anyone up for sitting in front of their TV creating this fab feature over a few nights?


Please contact Sarah Mawdsley on: to volunteer your services and sign up to something that appeals to you. It’s really not scary I promise, it’s actually great fun!


Thank you very much

Julia Savage, FSA
