Report by Louis Bage Year 6:
I really enjoyed the Christmas Bazaar this year, for the first time I
helped out on a stall in the Year 6 Games Room.
It was fun being able to wander around and see all the people you
know. There was a good atmosphere in the school because everyone
was excited about Christmas.
I enjoyed the chocolate tombola as I love chocolate and seeing Santa
was really fun. When we told him what we are doing for Christmas, his
hat fell off in shock!
The cakes and mince pies were very enjoyable, and I taste tested quite
a few.
I can't wait for next year's Christmas Bazaar, even though I won't be in
the school any more. Merry Christmas everyone.
Report by Evie Bage Year 5:
There was a lot to do in every classroom, and in the hall even more. Everyone at the stalls
were very happy and enthusiastic.
In the Year Six classroom there were all sorts of games to play, like Play your cards right,
Speed stacks and Roll the dice. Also some of the Year Six's and Year Five's were helping out
at the stalls. My friends and I had a go at running a stall, it was great fun.
The Year Four classroom had exciting crafts, from decorating little boxes to making
Christmas bells.
In the Year Three classroom there was a selection of things to do like face painting, glitter
tattoos and children’s tombola.
Lastly in the hall there were stalls like the chocolate tombola (YUM!), name a teddy bear
and lots more. One of my favourite things was Santa’s Grotto. Santa was so shocked when
we told him we were going to New Zealand, his hat fell off.
I hope that next year's Bazaar is as successful as this years. Hope you have a Merry
Well done to Oscar Bell in Y1 who
guessed the correct name of Thurlby
School’s bear which was Sam. Sam is
made out of two old school jumpers!
Thank you to everyone’s contributions however big or small. They all
helped to make the Christmas Bazaar a success and helped the HSA to
raise money to hopefully enable us to buy 3 more laptops for our
children, to add to the 6 we have already provided this term.
Lets keep fundraising as more laptops are needed due to class sizes
and computer breakdowns!

Report by Jack Andersen Y4 & Charlie Wise Y4:
At the Christmas craft club we made Christmas tags, reindeer dust
made with oats, coloured rice and glitter, Christmas cards, wrapping
paper, clay reindeers and 3D paper snowflakes. Our favourite part was
the 3D paper snowflakes because it was fun and detailed. Also we sold
some of the things that we made at the Christmas Bazaar.

Miss Fytche, once again, organised the
‘Christmas Tree Appeal’ in school (area
coordination being undertaken by the
Rotary Club of Stamford St Martins).
This project supports families in difficult
circumstances in our local community by
providing gifts at Christmas for their
children, many of whom would otherwise
receive nothing.
98 gifts were generously donated by
Scarlett Rowson from Y4 won 1st prize for
her poem.
Joint 2nd prize went to Jenson Moss Y1
and Isabella Thomas Y1.
Well done to all entrants, it was a tough
decision to choose the winners.
The Harvest Festival Assembly took place on 3rd October. Children
attended school in non-uniform and paid a voluntary £1 donation in
addition to providing and selling cakes with recipes after school.
Mary’s Meals Charity ensure that 93% of the donated funds are used
to provide life changing meals for the world’s poorest countries.
A very impressive total of £419.85 was raised.
All the children really enjoyed getting dressed up and raised an
impressive £275.29.
Years 1- 6 have been enjoying work relating to computer programming. The school
works closely with ‘Enriched IT’, a company based in Market Deeping. Y1 use
‘people programming’ to develop a set of instructions to achieve a simple practical
task and this is further developed through the use of software for developing
routines for ‘on-screen’ robots. The work encourages problem solving and logic for
solving simple problems. It is the school’s intention to extend Information and
Communication Technology studies in all year groups during the coming months.
The photograph shows Year 5 enjoying some work on computer programming.
Lincolnshire PCSO’s visited school on 29 September to talk to
children in assembly about the Junior Police Cadet School
Officer scheme.
Chloe Price and Bradley Cooper from Y5 and Alfie Woodward
and Lauren Toynton from Y6 were elected.
They will retain their roles for the full academic year.
14 & 15 October after school.
