What have I missed?


Smarties Fundraising Project - In progress!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to eat all the Smarties in your tube over the Easter Holidays and then fill the empty tube with as many 20p coins as you can! Bring back your tube of money to donate to Pre-School to help provide new learning resources. 

Bring your filled tube back to Pre school by Friday 26th April and we will use the money towards some lovely new equipment for the pre school! 

If you missed receiving a tube this week Kerry will be handing them out the first week back so get saving ready!
