Year 5&6

Christmas Lunch Menu

Our talented, lovely kitchen team are planning a special festive lunch on Thursday, 17th December!

There will be a choice of Roast Turkey or a vegetarian Festive Veggie Loaf, both served with the usual Christmas trimmings. This will be served to the children in their bubbles. Please note that this will be in place of the usual menu on 17/12/20 and there will be no other school dinner choices on this day.

Please check your email for a message from the office with a link where you can book a Christmas dinner for your child, which will be sent out via ParentPay.

Spooktacular Pumpkin Designs!

What a very creative lot you all are – we are very impressed with all the entries so far to this year’s Pumpkin competition! Some of the email communication about the Pumpkin Competition was incorrect. Please can you send your entry to this email: friendsoffishergateschool@gmail.com if you haven’t already done so and we will add them to the galleries. Thanks so much.

Boo!

It’s that time of year. Time to get your pumpkin carving skills going. This year we can’t do a spooky pumpkin parade, but we can do an online competition! So carve a pumpkin at home and send a photo of it (along with the child’s name and year group – *no children in the photos please*) to friendsoffishergateschool@gmail.com and make a donation via https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/fishergate-pumpkins

The photos will all be displayed here on the school website and our fantastic school volunteer Mr Bartlett will pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners from EYU / KS1 and from KS2. Winners will receive a beautiful certificate and a spooky prize. And all funds raised go to the fabulous charity https://www.carecent.org.uk/our-purpose/
