This month we will be looking at the following values:
- Good to be me
The children had a fantastic week this week and they especially enjoyed doing science experiments during Science Week. There were some very messy play, in particular with cornflour and water! I am not sure what the cleaning company thought about the white powder everywhere...
Few more scientific experiments went on in the classrooms this week, the children really enjoyed the hands-on experience.
Our attendance this week is 96.43%. Well done!
Just a reminder that we will celebrate Mothers' Day on 29th March, the service at St Mary's Church is at 11 am followed by lunch at noon. The adult lunch is £3.60. Please do let the office know your choice of menu as soon as you can and please can we have your payment in a named enveloppe. Thank you.
Please don't forget to send your forms back to your child's teacher if you want an appointment on Parents' evening.
Year 3/4 still have a plea for 500ml plastic drinks bottles (not 100 ml as previously mentioned) and egg boxes please to help them get creative with their Egyptian topic. Thank you!
Oxfordshire Music Service
Contacting the office
Please note that for all matters relating to the children (absence, pick up, clubs, etc...), parents need to use the parents' email address (email@example.com) as it is the only one that is manned every single day either by Mrs Lambert or Mrs Towler. Thank you.
Rags 2 Riches
Thank you very much to all parents who emptied their drawers and cupboards for the occasion, we had a lot of bags in Percy Collett and the children in Yr1/2 were only too pleased to give a hand to the driver!!
Thanks to everyone for supporting the Rags to Riches bag collection. We had over 60 bags and the provisional amount raised is £138.55. The company will check the bags so the amount we finally receive maybe adjusted if there are any stray items found, but I think you’ll agree it’s a fantastic amount. We will be holding another collection in the Autumn term.
At the parent’s consultations next week, the PTA will be selling “pre-loved” uniform. We have lots of logo jumpers, pinafore and summer dresses. So, come and grab a bargain.
The PTA will also have a display of some of the items that have been bought over the last school year for you to see where the money you have so generously given through supporting different events has been spent. We are a very small committee and would love some more members to join, there will be a sign-up sheet for anyone that would like to be part of the committee or would be happy to be contacted to help at events.
It’s “Mufti-day” on Friday 22nd March, in return for no school uniform we’re asking for an item of chocolate for the Chocolate Tombola at the Easter Event.
Don’t forget it’s Bingo tonight from 5.30pm, come and join in the fun! As well as the bingo there will be a licensed bar and raffle.
If you are unable to come to an event but would like to donate to the PTA, please do this through the office, cash or cheques made payable to Charlton on Otmoor School Association.
If you have ideas or suggestions for raising money or would like to join the PTA committee please let us know via the playground, office, email firstname.lastname@example.org or Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/149362305695629/
