Newsletter 02 Dec 2022

2nd December 2022
Thank you for all your lovely chocolate donations. All the chocolate has been ticketed ready for the chocolate tombola tomorrow at the HSCA Christmas Fair. We look forward to seeing you there.
The School Council have had a fabulous time decorating our beautiful school Christmas tree which was kindly donated by Mole Country Stores. It is completely adorned with every decoration possible and looks absolutely fantastic. In each class children have had a time for turning on their own class tree lights and have been learning about the awe and wonder of Christmas.
Mr West has run another very successful Wilder School Flash Mob kindly helped by our corporate volunteer Mrs Prosser
The children have really enjoyed planting peas and beans as well as digging out the weeds and holding the wiggly worms.

Year R request please
We are looking at birthdays and how we celebrate when babies are born next week. Could you bring any copies of baby photos you have, these may not be returned. We would also like to make a display of anything your baby was given to celebrate their birth. If you have any items like cards, gifts, clothes that are not too precious. These will be returned after being put on a look at only display.
If you have had a baby recently, who is under one, we would love a visit. Let us know if you would be happy to bring your baby into class and chat about anything special you did to celebrate when they were born. The children would like to ask you a few questions. We would like to do this visit on Wednesday 7th December. Please speak to your class teacher.
Thank you in advance.
