Fenstanton and Hilton Primary School - Spring
Our School Vision
Children only have one childhood.
Being part of a community of children is unique within life's experience.
In this school we value every child and strive to enrich the whole person.
We believe that learning should be vivid and real: a joy in itself.
We nurture adaptable and flexible learners who are passionate about learning and have the skills to confidently embrace every challenge and opportunity.
School Council Non Uniform Day
Friday 4th April 2014 for TOFS Charity
As you are aware we will be having a Non Uniform Day on the last day of term, Friday 4th April. We will be fundraising for TOFS Charity (www.tofs.org.uk).
TOFS is a registered, UK-based charity dedicated to providing support and information to families of children born with Tracheo-Oesophageal Fistula (TOF) and Oesophageal Atresia (OA). These are rare congenital conditions of the oesophagus (food pipe) and/or trachea (airway) that affect one in every 3,500 babies. Babies born with TOF/OA need to have intensive neo-natal care prior to corrective surgery, normally within days of birth and some children have to undergo additional surgical interventions later on in their lives. Children born with TOF/OA can also experience difficulties with swallowing and digesting food, reflux and respiratory problems.

Reception Mediaeval Castle Day
Friday 28th March 2014
On Friday 28th March the Reception children in Ash and Pine classes will be spending the day doing activities based around the theme of 'Life in a Mediaeval Castle'. We will be covering some historical skills, finding out how people ate in mediaeval times and making lavender bags.
Mr Hall will be coming to join us in the morning to practice horse riding and jousting.
We would like the children to come to school dressed appropriately for the day, perhaps as a knight, prince or princess. They will need to wear their school shoes and wear a costume that will keep them warm, as playtimes will take place as usual. We will be eating peas, leeks, onions, apples, pears and brown bread, please let us know if there is anything you would not like your child to eat.
We would like to ask for a contribution of £2.50 per child. Contributions are voluntary, but if sufficient contributions are not received the special day may have to be cancelled. Please return the slip on the letter sent home with your contribution of £2.50 in an envelope with your child's name and class teacher.
PTA Mothers Day Present Room
The PTA will be running the ever popular 'Mothers Day Present Room' this year.
This is your child/rens opportunity to come and choose a lovely gift which they can personally wrap for their Mum or Carer.

- JUNIORS on Thursday 27th March between 12.30 and 1.10pm in one of the spare classrooms
The present, including wrapping, will cost £2 per gift.
