PTFA

Welcome to Winwick PTFA Page
As parents and friends of our school you are automatically a member of this group. You can get involved as much or as little as you would like. The committee is a friendly bunch and we are all in it for the love of the school and for the benefit of all our children.
Our main communication methods are via our PTFA Facebook page:
https://facebook.com/groups/559063700952054  
(For the safety of all in our community, this is a private group so you will need authorisation from the administrators once a friend request has been sent) 
We will also ensure that events are on the calendar on the school website and PING as well as send reminders periodically via the school newsletters each Friday. 
 
See our most recent newsletter below with all the exciting events we have planned and what our hopes and wishes are for this year...
 
 
We have all had an amazing few days in school THANK YOU PTFA! 
Wednesday was PARTY day with us all in our party clothes, playing fun games together, having mini discos and enjoying the sweet cones provided. Then on Thursday it was time to welcome Father Christmas and some snow to Winwick! We has such a super time and want to thank everyone involved for such a special time. Thank you also for our presents from Father Christmas. 

RAINBOW CHRISTMAS TREE

Children have brought in a bauble to decorate our beautiful Christmas Tree. Each class used a specific colour to decorate the tree:

Rec: RED/ Year 1: GOLD/ Year 2: SILVER/ Year 3: GREEN/ Year 4: BLUE/ Year  5: PURPLE/   Year 6: PINK

We would like to thank Cop Holt Farm for their generous donation, to all our families for bringing in their decorations and to Mrs Swift and Mrs Foster for decorating it. The tree is beautiful and has definitely helped us get into the Christmas spirit. 

WINWICK TO LAPLAND
2215 MILES...
 
The aim if for us as a community to walk, jog, cycle, scoot our way to reach Lapland in time for the 16th December.This sponsored event will run from the 6th November and everyone is invited to take part.
Families are to log their weekly miles via the PING survey which will be sent to them each Monday. We can then track our journey and see how far we are to reaching our target. 
 
To sponsor the children (and adults) on their journey please visit our Go Fund Me page;

If we make it there will be a surprise Grand Finale for all the children on the school playground on the 16th December. 
 
Wow everyone.... WE MADE IT!!!!! 
But we seem to have missed Father Christmas and his elves and his reindeer. Because of the virus he has set off on his deliveries a little early this year. Can we retrace our steps and see if we can catch him up? When you send in your mileage in the last week please add all the families miles, not just the children please. Get these back to us by Wednesday 16th December. 
 
 
SMARTIES/ PASTILLE CHALLENGE 
 
Well done everyone who handed back their tubes and pots filled with pennies and pounds. Together you have raised an amazing.....£821.13
A huge thank you to Christine and Bill for their kind donation of the original smarties tubes, it was incredibly generous and the whole school are extremely appreciative.  
We do have some Committee vacancies for 2020-2021 if anyone is interested please contact school and your name will be passed on to Sarah Browning. 
 
REMEMBRANCE POPPY PEBBLES...
The children will bring home a pebble on Friday 6th November which we are asking if they can decorate at home and place in the Church grounds on the Green opposite The Swan pub. These need to be in place by Remembrance Day 11th November 2020. 
It is a community event with other groups in Winwick also taking part. Let us join in and honour our fallen soldiers and armed forces on this special 75th anniversary year of VE Day.
