Christmas at East Wichel School
Christmas is fast approaching and as a school we have been considering the implications that current restrictions will have on the season for us this year.
Unfortunately, this year, children will be unable to exchange cards or presents at school and as staff, we will also be unable to accept any personal gifts. We are asking instead that anybody who wishes to buy a gift, does so for their child’s class in the form of a book. Please don’t feel that this is expected (we are well aware of the current financial climate for many people) it’s simply an option should you feel you wish to pass on a gift.
With this in mind, and to ensure no duplicate copies of books are bought, each class teacher has a wish list of possible books to give you some ideas, which they will post on Class Dojo by the end of this week. Should you wish to purchase a book, please contact the class teacher direct on Class Dojo to let them know which one you have chosen and they will remove it from the list.
Any donated books will be given a label to say it has been donated by an East Wichel School family Christmas 2020.
Books can be ordered to be delivered direct to the school or should you wish can be placed in the drop box outside the school office. All books will be quarantined for 72 hours, to ensure they are safe for the class.
We love reading here at East Wichel and any books that we could share as a class would be greatly appreciated by the children (and staff!).
You may have also seen our messages about an East Wichel Christmas Hamper Collection. This year has been a tough year for everyone so East Wichel School would like to spread a little Christmas joy. We need your help you do this. We are collecting items to create Christmas hampers for our vulnerable families.
Donations include: non-perishable food, beauty products, toys/games and anything you see that may make a difference this Christmas.
Please place donations in the labelled box by the front entrance. We will be collecting until Thursday 10th December.
Christmas productions this year will be virtual, we will be sending further details about these out in due course.
Christmas dinner for all children is on Wednesday 16th December. Further details can be found here https://www.eastwichel.swindon.sch.uk/lunch-menus/
Thank you for your continued support
