The Friends of Spittal will also be running an Easter Bonnet competition for children and families to take part in, with the winner being announced here. Entries should be handed in to breakfast club by Tuesday 28th March. Good luck!
Red Nose Day (added 14/3/17) NEW!
This year, Red Nose Day will take place on Friday 24th March. Children are invited to wear red to school that day with a donation of £1 going towards the charity. There will be lots of activities going on around the school, planned by our charity committee, so make sure you gather up your loose change for a good cause!
Parents Night/Travelling Book Fair (added 14/3/17) NEW!
Our travelling book fair will be visiting Spittal this week, where children will have the opportunity to browse through the books before getting the chance to purchase these with an adult on Wednesday evening at Parents Night (15/3/17) or the next day in school. Each purchase helps raise money for the school to buy new books for our library, so make sure you help support us!
Literacy Week/World Book Day (updated 22/2/17) NEW!
Our literacy week is coming up and our overall aim is to create a whole school children's book for the nursery. We also have lots of exciting activities for the children planned. On Monday and Wednesday at 2.40pm we have invited parents of P1-3 children in to share a book with their child, and Debbie from the Library will be providing workshops throughout the week. Nursery and P1 have a joint 'Getting Ready to Read' workshop on Tuesday 28th Feb at 9.15pm and parents are invited to attend. On Thursday 2nd March it is World Book Day, and children are invited to dress as their favourite book character. Please don't rush out to buy costumes - some items from around the house can make a fantastic costume!
Playtime Snacks (added 8/2/17) NEW!
It has become apparent to us that some children are bringing in excessive amounts of sugary snacks and fizzy juice for their playtime snacks. These can have a physical effect on children which has a negative impact on their learning. So, in line with work on Health and Wellbeing, we encourage the children to bring one healthy snack for playtime, such as a piece of fruit or yogurt, and a small drink. They have access to cool drinking water throughout the day. Thank you for your support.
