Please see attached. We hope this is something you might be able to support!
Please see attached. Stamped ballot sheets have been sent home with children.
Please be aware of an error in the Parent Questionnaire that was sent out on Friday. Where there is reference to funding accessed by the school this reads as £16000 per pupil, which of course would exceed £5,000,000! This should have read as a £16000 lumpsum plus a £10 per pupil top up. Sorry for any confusion!
This week we continued our World War Two theme. Year 4 used clay to mould something to help them survive. There was an array of plates, bowls, jugs, cups and even vases. The second challenge was to develop their natural air raid shelters to make them more comfortable and camouflaged. 4G were very lucky to be able to use some freshly cut branches too. There was lots of active learning, collaboration and communication this week from both classes. Well done Year 4!
Next week we are learning about Remembrance Day, this is a great time for families, through the generations, to share memories of loved ones lost at war and different roles people took in the war. If you would like to send in any photographs or memorabilia with your child next week we would love to share it in class.

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.
