'Success for all, in all we do'

Reception Learning from Home Activities - Week beginning 13th July

Hello everyone,


It seems strange to think that this week is the last week of term! We will be writing one more blog next Friday so look out for it!


Many of you have visited school recently to meet your new teacher and we know you are really excited to join them in September!


Last week we enjoyed reading the Tiger Who Came for Tea and using this to lead our learning. The children in school particularly enjoyed learning about tigers. 


For our final week, we will be looking at the traditional tale: Goldilocks and the Three Bears. At the end of the week we will be celebrating the children's success and the children will either virtually receive a graduation certificate via Tapestry or receive it in person, if they are in school. 


We have been impressed by the creativity of Fircroft children and parents in organising a virtual Summer Fair! It has been lovely to see the virtual fair pictures and the amount of money raised! Thank you so much. Below is a short message from the PTA.



Enjoy the home learning and stay safe and well. â€‹

Virtual Summer Fair Campaign

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.
