FATFIELD BOOK DAY
Thank you to everyone who came to our day, supported the school for this day to happen or provided the wonderful costumes that everyone was wearing. We have had so many lovely comments from you all about what a success the day was and how amazing our story-teller, Chris Bostock, was in the story telling sessions. We loved seeing so many people in school celebrating the fantastic world of stories and books. All of our children took home a special self-made story writing book at the end of the day and we hope our children continue enjoying stories at home by writing their own in this very special journal. Thank you everyone!

It was our first Invitation Afternoon of the year this week. We had a fantastic turnout of people from home.

MacMillan Coffee Morning
Thank you to everyone who attended our Macmillan Coffee Morning or donated any goodies and cakes towards this amazing event. Together, we managed to raise a staggering £464.52 to go towards this great cause.
Parent Reading Workshop – Y1, 2 & 3
Due to Parent Feedback last term on how parents could help with Home Reading, we held a morning reading event at school. Parents found out how they can help at home to develop their children’s reading skills using their home reader. Staff were on hand with helpful hints and ideas for questions that can help children progress in reading. We finished off the morning by reading together with snuggly blankets and cushions. Thank you to all the parents who attended.
On Friday, we opened our doors to people from home for our termly Invitation Afternoon. It was wonderful to see so many people looking at the fabulous work, displays and achievements that our children have completed this term. Thank you to everyone who came and well done to all of our fantastic children who have worked so hard this term.

We are over the moon with our new computing suite of 33 computers! Year 6 loved creating their 3D Mayan Maze games when they used the suite for the first time today.
Christmas Reading Day
What a brilliant day we had today! Everyone came to school in snuggly pyjamas to share stories underneath our Christmas tree. As a special surprise, every pupil received a brand new book from the school staff and sipped delicious hot chocolate.
