Our best Winter Fair yet!

We want to say a huge thank you to all of our children and parents, and of course to Mrs Kabir and all of the parents in the Lowerplace Parent’s Forum, for making our Winter Fair such a massive success! We all had a fantastic day with the games, stalls and food, and it was wonderful to see Father Christmas too!

We have managed to raise an amazing sum:

Well done everyone and thank you again!

Winter Fair today!

It’s finally the day of the Winter Fair! Mrs Kabir and all of the incredible parents of the Lowerplace Parents Forum have been super busy for the last month, making sure everything is just right for the big day today!

Father Christmas is already here and is so happy to be seeing the children! He didn’t park his sleigh in the school car park, I’m pleased to say, but I’m sure I can see Rudolph munching some grass out on the school field.

There are so many stalls to visit, with games to play and things to buy, and the always-important food stalls, with everything homemade by our awesome Parents Forum!

Each class will visit at a set time during the day, and then children can come back at the end of the school day too. Parents are very welcome to come to the Fair while their children are attending, and of course at the end of the school day too.

Please see the document below for the timeslot that your child’s year group will visit the fair.

The Lowerplace Winter Fair – Friday 16th December 2016

We’re so excited for the Winter Fair! Mrs Kabir and all of the incredible parents of the Lowerplace Parents Forum have been super busy for the last month, making sure everything is just right for the big day this Friday.

Father Christmas will be arriving early on Friday morning – I wonder if he’ll park his sleigh in the school car park? We’ll have food, stalls and games for the children to visit, and we’ll be opening the doors to parents too so please do pop along, it’s always such a fun event!

Each class will visit at a set time during the day, and then children can come back at the end of the school day too. Please remember to send some money in with your child on Friday, and if they have sent back the reply slip to visit Santa, please also send in their £2 for that.

There will be a raffle at the Winter Fair, we are selling tickets for the draw in classrooms all this week, for 25p each or 5 for £1.

Please see the document below for the timeslot that your child’s year group will visit the fair.

Everything’s Christmassy at Lowerplace!

Well, we’re definitely on track for Christmas at Lowerplace. We had a hugely successful Alzheimer’s Society Elf Day last Friday (and the school elves are in the process of counting up the money – thank you so much for your generosity!) and the first performance of the Key Stage 2 show “Away With The Manger”.

We want to say a huge thank you to parents and other family members for their patience with the ticketing for the KS2 shows; as you know we have to limit the number of people in the Hall for fire safety, so ticketing the events is the only way we can be sure that we’re not over that limit.

Check below for the other exciting events at school over the next week and a half! We’re breaking up at 3:15pm on Wednesday 21st December 2016, and are back in at 8:50am on Wednesday 4th January 2017.

Business Enterprise Week

Business Enterprise Week BEW logo

From Monday 11th July to Friday 15th July, the whole school will be taking part in Business Enterprise Week (BEW). During Business Enterprise Week the children will be designing, creating, costing, and budgeting for a product, as well as generating posters, business plans and conducting market research. Each year group will either be creating a product to sell or a game, which will cost to play, based on their own chosen theme.

At the end of this aspirational week, we will be holding a Summer Fayre, where all the products made by the children will be on sale. The fayre is always a fantastic opportunity for the children to show their parents, carers, family and friends the fantastic products that they have created.

As a reward for generating the most profit, the year group who does achieve the most will be able to use the money to buy books for their year group.

The Summer Fayre will take place on Friday 15th July at 3.15pm in the Junior Hall. We would like to warmly invite all our families to come and join us to celebrate Business Enterprise Week!
