Year 1 Art Exhibition, Thursday 13 February, 2.15pm
Oak and Beech classes are holding an art exhibition on Thursday and parents are invited to pop in any time between 2.15 and 3.00pm to look at the children’s artwork. If you are not able to come perhaps you could ask a friend’s mum to look round with your child.

Parents’ Consultations, 5 & 6 March
Please remember to return your completed form by Monday 10 February.

This week we are focussing on the spirit of Joy and will be concentrating on cheerful greetings to our friends as well as the adults around us.

We will be saying a sad farewell at half term to Lorraine, who works in Hazel Class, and Anika (Oak Class) who are leaving to pursue new ventures. They will both be missed by staff and children alike.

Eco Team Book Swap
Thank you to everyone for getting involved in the Book Swap. We hope you enjoy your new book over the weekend.

School Council
This week the School Council went to Waterstones and bought new sports books for the library with some of the money we have received for sports funding.

HTPD Prayer Group
The date of the next meeting is Tuesday 11 February, at 12 noon, at Elaine Fitzwater’s house. We meet for lunch (provided) and all are welcome! Contact Emma Laporte for details – emmalaporte@hotmail.com.

Please email Sian (sians@holytrinity.surrey.sch.uk) if you would like to look after the two Year R rabbits over half term. They come with a holiday cage so you will need a shed/garage/utility room or something similar to keep them in. If you can help, please let us know by next Tuesday11 February.


FOPS Meeting - Monday 24 February
The next FOPS meeting will be on Monday 24 February at 8pm in the staff room. Richard and Mel will be coming along to talk to us about the IT requirements for the school and we will also be discussing summer term events. Everyone is very welcome.

Mad March Ball - Saturday 8 March
The Mad March Ball may be sold out but we are pleased to announce that 50 "after dinner" tickets (10pm to 1.00pm) have been released on a first come first served basis. If you would like to come along and enjoy the live music and disco and have a few drinks, the tickets are £10 (including a glass of bubbly). Please fill in an application form and return it to the school office.

Cake Sale - Friday 14 February
Don't forgot to bring a few pennies next Friday for the playground cake sale, organised by Willow class. A homemade cup cake is the perfect Valentine's gift!

What are your plans for half term? If you use the easyfundraising.org.uk website to access retailers and select Friends of Pewley Down Infant School as your chosen cause you could raise funds for the school too. Lovefilm.com are offering a donation of £6 when you start a 30 day free trial and Domino's Pizza a donation of 1.5% - a good wet weather option. If you are going out and about, the National Trust are offering a 5% donation when you take out a membership and LEGOLAND Holidays are offering a 4% donation. Many of the sports and outdoor retailers are also offering donations - SportsDirect, Blacks, Evans Cycles etc. It is really simple to use and could make a huge difference to the funds we raise.

Year 1 Coffee Morning, Friday 14 February
At Jo McGee’s (Mum to Josh, Oak) at 21 Pewley Bank from 9.00-11.00am. Bring a love-themed cake if you wish!
