Christmas card competition


I know that it may be too early to be thinking about Christmas, but we have been invited to participate in a Christmas card competition by MP Victoria Prentis.

The theme for the Christmas card is ‘Nativity animals.’ The children can be as creative and adventurous as they want. They can make their design, no bigger than A4 size, on a piece of paper or card.

Schools across North Oxfordshire have all be invited to take part. There will be one winner and three runners up. The winner will have their design printed on the front of Victoria Prentis’s official Christmas cards, which are sent to over 500 people across North Oxfordshire and the country. They will also be invited to visit the House of Commons with their parents and a sibling or friend for a tour. They will also receive a small gift from the House of Commons shop as a prize. The three runners up will have their card designs printed together on the back of the Christmas card, and will also receive House of Commons colouring pencils.

All entries need to be brought into school on Monday 29th October, as they will be posted that evening. Please clearly label your work with your name and class.


I look forward to seeing your creative designs!

Reading Cafe

We had the first Reading Cafe on Wednesday 10th October and we will be holding the reading cafe every month in the hall, all the books are free to read or take home and we love donations of books!  Tea, coffee, squash and biscuits are available too!   The Reading Café will be open to all our families who would like to sit and read or share a story during that time.  Books will be provided from our Big Book Swap and there will also be a range of books for adults and topic books that can be read and/or taken free of charge.

The PTA will be selling refreshments – teas, coffees, squash and biscuits for 20p and you are welcome to enjoy the books in the hall or make your selection and take them home.

Also, on Wednesday 17th October we would like to invite families to share a story with us in the school hall from 3:05-3:30pm.  The story will be linked to our Citizens of the Week theme, “World Religions”.

If you would like to make donations of books to the Big Book Swap at any time this year please just bring your books to the Year 4 classroom!

We hope to see you there!
