Christmas Fete Friday 13th December 2-4 pm

Dear parents

I am really pleased to invite you to join us at Birchfield on Friday 13th of December from 2pm until 4pm for our Christmas Fete. This is such an exciting school event where staff, children and their families can come together to enjoy an afternoon’s fun and celebrate the end of a successful term.  It will be very busy – amongst other things, there will be games, raffles, yummy food and Christmas crafts and stalls for all ages. 

In order for us to set up the fete, there will be no clubs in the afternoon. All children will need to be collected by parents at 12:15 or 1:15. School will then be closed temporarily while staff set up in the school and then the gates will be opened at 2pm to invite you in. As school staff will be running the event, all parents will be responsible for the supervision of their children during the afternoon. 

We would love your support with this event and if you are interested in getting involved further or donating prizes, please could you come and see me or a member of SLT. I am sure this will be a hugely successful event for our school and look forward to seeing you all there. 

Thanks for your continued support.

Thank you to all the parents who attended the phonic workshops which were a great success! It was so lovely to see so many of you there, supporting your children in their learning. We have attached the phonics booklet which was provided on the day for future reference.
