Christmas events update from the PTA
15 November 2019 (by ccps-admin)
We are well aware of how packed the Christmas calendar is and hope that having all the information in one place proves helpful!
NEW FOR 2019: Christmas Grotto & Market - Thursday 12th December 5.00pm to 7.00pm
In a break from tradition and to reflect the growth of the school we have this year decided to hold an evening event. Hopefully, this will ensure there is the opportunity for all to attend in a family friendly and festive environment without the mayhem of an after school fayre. More details will be sent out shortly, including how to pre-book a visit to Santa’s Grotto. You can also expect stalls, tombolas, hamper raffle, Christmas raffle, Santa’s Christmas stocking game, hot and cold drinks and cakes, all accompanied by festive songs from our wonderful school choir.
Our Christmas raffle has now been launched and tickets sent home with each child to sell. Please return tickets stubs and money by 12th December, prior to the draw on the 13th December. Prizes include a £225 Family Fortnum and Mason Hamper kindly donated by Coleshill Mortgages and many more to be announced. If you would like more tickets please ask at the school office.
Create a Christmas Decoration Competition - bring in by Tuesday 3rd December
Get into the festive spirit and make a Christmas tree decoration to hang on the school tree. Your decoration must be approximately 10cm in length and not too heavy. Use string or a paper clip so it can hang easily on the tree. You can use any materials you want. Please remember to label the decoration with your name and class. It must be all your own work!!! There will be a winner for each class. The decorations will be hung on the school tree ready for all to see at the Christmas Grotto and Market.
KS1 Infant Christmas Pantomime - Thursday 5th December
This will be a very special Christmas surprise funded by the PTA. It will be held in school during the day. We are really excited to bring this event to you.
White Elephant - Friday 6th December
We ask that children bring in items which can be used to raise funds at the Christmas Grotto and Market - toys, books, DVDs (age appropriate) unwanted gifts (e.g. toiletry sets), unopened boxes of chocolates/biscuits, bottles of wine etc. These are to be bought in on Friday 6th December and taken to your classroom. As a thank you children can come in own clothes on this day.
KS2 Junior Pantomime Trip - Tuesday 10th December
The PTA have funded the coaches for the KS2 pantomime trip. We hope all the children have a brilliant time!
Christmas Jam Jar Competition - bring in by Tuesday 10th December
Children are invited to bring in a jar filled with sweets decorated for Christmas. The jars will be sold at the Christmas Grotto and Market. There is a prize for the best jar in each class.
Cake Donations - Thursday 12th December
Please bring in any homemade or shop bought cakes on this day to be sold at the Christmas Grotto and Market.
Junior Christmas Disco - Wednesday 18th December 6.30pm to 8.00pm
£3.00 per child payable on the door. Refreshments are provided and there is no need for children to bring any spending money.
The PTA would like to thank all parents for their ongoing support. All money raised goes directly back in to the school to help enhance your child’s learning journey. We would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas.
