We have a lot of exciting events coming up and we hope you will be able to take part in some or all of them, helping to fundraise for the school.
Next week, on Wednesday 27th March, the children can go to the Mother’s Day Pop-up Shop to select a present for their mum, grandmother or any other special person in their lives. There is a form to fill in by Monday 25th March. You can find it in this newsletter and a copy of it will have gone home with your children on last week, on Friday.
Before we break up for Easter, the children will also have the opportunity to take part in the Great Eggstravaganza 2019.
We are asking the children to design and make an egg in a box. We recommend a shoe box, a large cereal box or a smallish cardboard box. Then, it needs an interesting theme. If possible, the title should have a play on the word “egg” but you really can do anything you like.
The egg will need to be hard boiled and then cooled down before it is painted/coloured. You may want to use more than one. Please ensure your child does not boil the egg without strict supervision. Plastic or polystyrene eggs could also be used. It really is entirely up to you – use whatever you need to make your creation eggsiting.
Entries should be brought into the school hall early morning on Thursday 4th April. Please also bring 50p per entry which will help to support the PTA with their vital fundraising for the school.
There will be four winners – one from Early Years, one from KS1, one from lower KS2 and one from upper KS2.
Entries will be displayed in the hall and parents will have the opportunity to view them that afternoon after the children have been dismissed from class.
After Easter, we have several exciting events in May.
On Friday 10th May, the Superstars of Wrestling are returning to Chilton School! This night of live entertainment was a big hit last year so make sure you get your tickets as soon as possible. Doors open at 5.30pm, starts at 6pm. Tickets are £5 and can be bought from the school office and on the night on the door. See www.welshwrestling.com for more information about this fun family event!

The following weekend, on Friday 17th May, the PTA is hosting a Brush Party, a fantastically fun evening of painting where you will be able to take home your own masterpiece. If you think you can’t paint, think again! You will be amazed what you create as you are guided through the process by Brush Party’s artist. Tickets are £30 and can be purchased online from https://brushparty.co.uk/ or from the school office. Refreshments will be available to purchase but please bring your own alcohol.
We can also now reveal that our big summer event will be held on Saturday 15th June. The circus is coming to Chilton! Roll up, roll up for the big top of the Pop Up Circus.
