On Saturday 31st March the PTFA held a chocolate Bingo event for children and their families in the school hall. There were a huge number of prizes and most families managed to win something. Thank you to all for attending and providing cakes and chocolate for the event. A total of approximately £400 was raised which will provide an author visit for the school.
Forrest Schools Questionairre Oct 2015
"Newton Ferrers school is hoping to provide more outdoor activities for children in the local community. These might take the form of ' Forest School', which is learning which takes place in a woodland or natural environment to develop a relationship between children and the natural world. These activities will be provided in addition to the normal primary school curriculum.
In order to make sure that the right type of opportunities are provided and that all children are engaged we have developed the following very quick (and totally anonymous) survey. It is available on-line through Survey Monkey by double clicking this web link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NCCXS9Y or in paper form from the school office. The closing date for all surveys is Friday 16 October 2015.
Please can we encourage anyone looking after children in the local community - grandparents, carers, parents or teachers - to fill out the survey. There is an emphasis on children experiencing difficulties such as illness or family hardship but this just to make sure we get funding to provide extra support for these children and that their needs are met. The activities will be open to all children of primary school age (and possibly pre-school).
Thank you very much for taking the time to fill out the survey."
