'Success for all, in all we do'

Summer Term - Y3 Learning from Home Activities - Week beginning 13th July 2020

Dear Juniper and Kapok families,

As surreal as it is, we have now reached the final week of term! We cannot believe how quickly this term as gone. Although we were not able to reunited, we wanted to let you know how proud we are of all of you. The dedication you have shown has been admirable so you should also be proud of yourselves.

We have included a picture from everyone who has sent us a photo this week so have a look at the slideshow and see if you can spot your work!

Later on this week, there will be two separate blogs (one for each class) so we can say farewell to you all!

In the meantime (as we aren't finished yet), you will find your final lot of work and all the resources you may need.

Missing you all,

Miss Alabi and Miss Battagello

Virtual Summer Fair Campaign- Message from the PTA

The Virtual Summer Fair Campaign kicked off last Wednesday with various events taking place over the weekend.  Thank you to everyone for holding and attending these events and for so many generous donations.   We've loved seeing the photos of the fun you've been having! We are blown away to have received a phenomenal £3,081 in donations so far, meaning we are already 60% of the way to our £5,000 target! How amazing our Fircroft Family and Friends are! 

Events are still in the pipeline and you can let us know your plans/activities on

Coming up next is a Bake Sale on Friday 10th July, 2-4pm on Chetwode Road. Brownies, cake, veggie rolls and more!! 

We'd love to acknowledge your children's enthusiasm and participation. Let us know here how they have participated so we can thank them. 

You can also donate books, CDs and DVDs via the link on individual fundraisers pages.  For ease of reference you can read more about the campaign here -  It’s truly remarkable what we have already achieved so far by coming together.  How amazing it would be if we can push through and race past the £5,000 target! As ever, thank you for your continued support.

Friends of Fircroft PTA
