Children In Need 2015
On Friday 13th November it was ‘Children In Need’. As usual we asked children to bring in £1 which meant they could dress-up and have a Pudsey Bear biscuit kindly baked by Dawn, from the school kitchen. Children also brought in money to have a go at the different activities on offer.
This year we have managed to raise £514.58 for this worthwhile cause, a new Carr Hill record! Full article with photos and video available HERE
The Reading Lottery
This month we welcomed the Travelling Book Fair in school.
The children enjoyed visiting the fair with their classes and it was pleasing to see them enjoying some of the stories on offer. Sales from the book fair amounted to £910.44 which raised £468.26 commission for the school to spend on new books. Thank you for supporting school with this. Every single penny will be spent on providing even more books for the school library. You can find the Reading Lottery Winners HERE

Anti-Bullying Week 2015 - 16th to 20th November
This year the theme for ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ is:
‘Make a NOISE about bullying’

Open Morning 2015
Our annual Open Morning took place on Friday the 6th of November this year.
As usual, parents and friends had a chance to come into school to see the school working on a ‘normal’ day. Parents were able to see two lessons and a whole school assembly where we celebrated some of the good things that had happened during the week.
Approximately sixty parents attended for the morning and it was great to chat with them over refreshments at break-time to hear their impressions from their visit.
The majority of parents also completed evaluations of the event and I must say it was very rewarding to see the many positive comments provided. Two parents also requested that future events might be held in an afternoon to allow more people to attend and we will try to accommodate this wish next term.
