Codsall Christmas Fair
Codsall residents once again extend a warm welcome to our neighbouring villages for an evening of seasonal festivities on Friday 1st December.
Codsall Christmas Fair is back again this year, bigger and better than ever. This great community event, organised by volunteers, is now double the size – meaning double the fun. With a lot more stalls, there is certainly something for everyone – ranging from arts, crafts, gifts, food and much more. You will not have to worry about those last-minute gifts.
For those that will be feeling peckish, we have even more hot food & drink stalls this year. Indulge yourself into the festive spirit with mulled wine, prosecco, and roasted chestnuts. We also have hot pork sandwiches, jacket potatoes, German style bratwurst, pizza, and plenty more, allowing all the grown-ups to take a night off from cooking.
There will be many activities to keep the little ones busy including fairground rides, kiddie’s roundabout, a bouncy castle and, of course, Santa will be in his grotto, granting everyone’s Christmas wishes.
Live music will come from the Sunhoney, Sam Draisey, Alexandra Jayne, a Ukulele Band and the Salvation Army Band with Steve Kaos performing amazing feats in the streets. We also have an appearance from everybody’s favourite football mascot, Wolfie, accompanied by Wendy.
Our traditional “Carols around the Christmas Tree” will then draw this wonderful evening to a close but our village pubs and clubs will continue the festivities into the evening.
You are all invited to come along, bring your friends and family, and celebrate this special event.
For more information, please visit our website: www.codsallchristmasfair.co.uk
Don’t forget our PTFA Film Night on Monday. We hope the children who have booked their places look forward to coming along!
Our Fireworks Night will take place on Friday 3rd November and details on how to buy tickets will be coming home to you soon. This event is open to the public so do bring along other family and friends. As always it will be cheaper to buy your tickets in advance rather than on the gate so do look out for the letter.
Our Christmas Card team have already been into school to get the children creating pictures for their Christmas Cards. Proof cards will be coming home before half term. We realise this is very early to be thinking about Christmas, but the sooner we get the orders in the more money the cards make for school.
After a successful trial last year, we are pleased to be hosting another Tea and cake with Santa on Saturday 9th December. This will be a ticketed event and the price will include a visit to Santa in his grotto, hot drinks and a slice of cake. We would be very grateful for some extra Elves to help us at this event, if you are available please do let us know. Thank you for your continued support with our fundraising.

Year 4 began learning survival skills this week and related this to their classroom learning about World War ll. They worked in teams to put up tarpaulin shelters, making sure they were secure and waterproof and using the resources they were given. The shelters were fantastic! The children also developed their communication, leadership and teamwork - well done Year 4!
Please see attached, which gives the information required by Year 2 parents for the term.
This weekend we have truly seen autumn come to life. Over the coming weeks why not enjoy an autumn walk, look and talk about the changes in the environment, collect autumn treasures and listen to the crunch of crispy autumn leaves under foot. Reception and nursery children would like to use the autumn treasures to enhance their learning, make observations and ask questions. We would love some crispy autumn leaves, conkers, pine cones, acorns and any other autumn treasure that you might find along the way, please pass them to any member of staff who will direct them to Nursery and Reception . Thank you for helping us make learning come to life.
Please see attached which shares important information sharing the changes that will come into effect from January 2018.
Please see attached, paper copies have been sent home also.
Can we ask that children bring an empty 1 or 2 litre plastic water bottle in to school to make their rain guage by Thursday of next week please. If any families have more than one, please send them in for anyone who may forget!
Tickets for this event are selling fast, please click here to book yours online...don't miss out!

Parents reminded to park responsibly outside schools
With children back to school for the new term, parents are being urged to put safety first by parking responsibly during drop-off and pick-up times.
The Staffordshire County Council campaign is calling on people to park considerately and reminding drivers that Civil Enforcement Officers will be visiting roads near schools right across the county. Any vehicle observed parked on yellow lines or in a restricted area could be issued with a penalty notice, if not observed picking up or dropping off a passenger.
The campaign is also reminding drivers to switch off their engines when parked up, which is good for the environment and people’s health, and helps reduce pollution.
It is hoped that the campaign will also urge parents to consider alternative modes of transport such as walking, cycling, scooting ‘park and stride’ or a walking bus. These all help to reduce congestion and pollution outside schools which is good for the environment, good for parents pockets, and helps keep people active.
