PTFA Newsletter - Term 4

St Ethelbert’s PTFA


Many thanks to the children of years 5 and 6 who did an amazing amount of good deeds and raised a fabulous £111.50 for our ‘Good Deeds for 20p’s’ event. Also to everyone who came along and supported us on movie night, which was a sold out event. We hope you all had fun.


Its time to get your bake on again!

Friday 26th November is year 4s turn to bring in their bakes and cakes. These will be sold after school at both the main Junior playground and outside the Lillian road entrance. Please remember to leave in original packaging or to add a list of ingredients with you items.


Christmas at St. Ethelbert’s.

We have lots of PTFA events organised in the run up to the big day. First up is our non-uniform day on December 3rd in exchange for items for our fair. A list of these are on the poster and the PTFA newsletter.


Next we have Elfridges! A chance for your little ones to pick and wrap a gift for a friend or family member with the help of our PTFA elves. Gifts are £2 each with a limit of 2 per child. Payment for this opens today on the schools Teacher2Parents app. and closes on December 1st.


Our big one is our Christmas Fair on the 10th December starting at 3.30. Stalls include tombola, pre loved toys, lucky bags, refreshments and lots lots more. Raffle tickets will be sold on the playground after school and on the day so look out for PTFA members selling them. We are also having a Bake Off competition!! Please refer to the poster for details of how to enter.


Coming soon......  the Junior Christmas Disco. Details for this and tickets will be available in the coming weeks.


If anyone has any spare wrapping paper that they would like to donate then please send it in on the non-uniform day (3rd December). It would be much appreciated.


Many Thanks for all your support. Remember, all funds raised go directly to enhancing your child’s experience at St. Ethelbert’s Catholic Primary School. With the help of this fund, already this academic year we have bought early years resources, books for the library and tickets for the children to see a pantomime.

New for 2021-


Good deeds for 20p’s


Start saving up your odd jobs and 20p’s for half term. We will be sending your children home with a treat of a tube of smarties. These are for them to enjoy. In return we would like them to complete good deeds in order to earn 20p’s to put back into their tube. We will be piloting this with years 5 and 6 and as an extra incentive we will be giving the class who earns the most, a non-uniform day in term 2!! A prize also goes to the best decorated tube within each class.


Remember, all funds raised go directly back to enhancing your child’s experience at St Ethelberts so get earning!!
