The Chris Evans Breakfast Show’s 500 Words story-writing competition returns to Radio 2 for a fifth year in 2015. The competition has two age categories: 5 – 9 year olds and 10 – 13 year olds.
Entrants write a fictional short story (no more than 500 words in length) and submit it via an online entry form at bbc.co.uk/500words. Entries are judged on: originality, plot, characterisation, language and enjoyment! Lots of prizes to be won. If your child would like to enter the competition, more details can be found on the BBC Radio 2 website. Good luck!!!
‘Active Kids’ is back with Sainsbury’s!!! Please can everybody start collecting the vouchers and pop them in the box situated in the main Reception area. Ask friends, family, neighbours and anyone in Sainsbury’s who turns the vouchers down!!! The more we collect, the more we can purchase!!!
Just a reminder, if we do experience snow and have to close the school please check the school’s website and Central Bedfordshire’s School Closure List, which can be found at: www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/webAPPS/SOS.
Both sites will be updated accordingly.
Badgers Class – Space Week
Next week, as part of our school wide space week, Badgers Class will be taking part in some challenges. For one of the challenges we need to collect the following items:
Small cardboard boxes, small plastic containers (eg ones holding tomatoes/grapes), bubble wrap (definitely need this!), kitchen roll tubes, tissue paper (for packing boxes etc)
If you can help with any of these items, please send them in with your child as soon as possible. We need them by Friday 30th January. Thank you.
You may remember form last year that Badgers class successfully decorated old shoes for the open gardens. This year we would like to ‘upcycle’ old chairs. In order to do this we will need to start collecting old chairs. They can be wooden or plastic but not fabric as they will have to be in the school garden outside! They can be either small children’s chairs or normal sized chairs. Please can we ask that you start keeping an eye out for any chairs that may be suitable. Obviously storage will be an issue so we ask that you keep hold of them if at all possible but let Mrs Inkson if you have something suitable so she can keep a running total of how many we have. Thank you.
