Full CalendarSchool Events

This event will take place between 2:30pm and 4:00pm on 06/12/2019.

With great excitement, we would like to invite you to our Christmas Bazaar. This year we are doing things slightly differently in response to children’s and parents’ comments from previous years:

On the day of the Bazaar, children can wear their own clothes to school in exchange for either a chocolate prize for the tombola (for Reception to Year 3 children), or cakes for our refreshments stall (for Years 4,5, and 6).

For children in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2:

You are welcome to collect your child a little earlier than normal, at 2.30pm, to enjoy a less congested walk around the Bazaar.  If it’s more convenient to collect your child at 3.00pm as normal, then he/she will stay in class until you arrive.

Children in Years 3 to 6

Children will be dismissed from class at 3.00pm as normal and will enter the hall from the outside door once accompanied by an adult.

Kidz Biz attendees of all ages will also have an opportunity to visit the hall at 2.30pm accompanied by staff. Please provide them with a sensible amount of spending money, which can be kept securely during the day by Kidz Biz staff.

The Bazaar will have all the usual wonderful treats for you to enjoy: crafts, games, chocolate tombola, refreshments and, assuming everyone has been good, Father Christmas will be visiting to make sure he has all the children’s wishes in time for the big day.

For the first time we will have a Bring and Buy stall with all the goods you kindly donated on Children in Need day. This will be a great opportunity to get a few well-priced toys and treats for Christmas and support a super charity at the same time.

A luxury hamper and a cash prize will be on offer in the raffle; you will be able to buy tickets in advance from the office or on the day.

Finally, your child will be making Christmas crafts to sell at the Bazaar. For the first time, you are invited to reserve your child’s craft to buy at the Bazaar as we know they hold particular importance to you. Please let us know by returning the Parent Mail Form, which will be sent out to your nearer the time if you want to reserve your child’s creation. Plenty more crafts will be made for all to buy!
