Winning house for Term 5: Poplar – Non uniform for Poplar on Friday 10th June Strawberry Fair Golden Ticket:  – Carys M Sasha K was recently one of only 12 U 11’s chosen to represent the South West England chess team in a match against Wales. The tournament was recently held in Monmouthshire and Sasha won one game and lost one. It was a fantastic experience for Sasha in his first international match and his family are very proud of him. Well done Sasha!




Inset Day: – Please be reminded that school is closed to children on Monday 13th June. There was an error in the link book which showed the inset day as 20th June. A communication was sent out earlier last term confirming that the inset day was 13th June and NOT 20th June. Children therefore are expected in to school on 20th June.



Sports t- shirts – Miss Blake requires any sports t-shirts lent out in previous tournaments to be returned, washed immediately please There is a cricket tournament next week and she is short of returned t-shirts!!

Poplar non uniform day – All Poplar house are allowed to come to school tomorrow (10th June) in non- uniform as they were the winning house for Term 5.

Plea from Fitz Friends – More jumble jars are desperately needed for the Strawberry Fair tombola style stall. Please fill clean jars with treats and knick-knacks such as small action figures, rubbers, toys, stickers, hair accessories, puzzles, bouncy balls and wrapped sweets (no nuts please) – anything fun that will fit – and leave filled jars in the box in school reception. Thanks!
