This year at Shaw Wood, one of our priorities is to promote reading for enjoyment. We would like our children to have a real interest in books and develop a love for reading.
Over the past few months, we have purchased many new reading books and have some books that will no longer be used in our reading scheme. We would like to give the children an opportunity to purchase these books, so they are given a good home.
We are holding a small book sale in school on Thursday 31st January. The children can bring 20p into school and will have the opportunity to choose a book from the stall. There is a limited amount so to start with, we will offer one book per child.
During the visit by the British Council, we have had many high quality professional photographs taken of the school and of the children during lessons.
A huge thanks to those of you that donated to and/or attended the Cake Bake sale on Friday last week. I am sure, like me, many of you were overwhelmed and quite emotional at the incredible response we received from the community.
Thanks to the generosity of families, both to the non-uniform event and to the Cake Bake sale, we were able to raise a massive £1362.90. Armthorpe Academy have already contributed a further £350 which brings the overall total for the family to £1,712.90.
Thank you too to parents and staff who donated hamper items for the family and to Morrisons Supermarket who continue to support Shaw Wood with generous donations.
My sincerest thanks again.
