    MATHS WEEK

    Hopefully your children have shown you this note sent home today? This is just a reminder...
    Next week is ‘Maths Week’ and every year we always take part in it by getting the children to come to school dressed in ‘maths’ clothes and
    have extra fun maths activities planned for each class through the week.
    Our aim is to highlight that maths can be fun so next Wednesday (20th) we’d like all children to come dressed once again in appropriate ‘maths’ gear for the whole school day and they’ll be different activities going on in their classes through next week.
    These clothes can have a number somewhere on them, shapes, patterns, stripes, whatever.. as long as it’s maths related.
    Thank you

    Christmas Cards

    Dear all,

    It’s hard to believe we are into October. We hope everyone has settled back into school and normal routine!

    As has been the tradition in recent years, children will soon have the opportunity to design Christmas Cards. These cards and accessories can then be purchased, with a percentage of the money raised going to our school funds. This always proves to be a very successful fundraiser for our school.

    After a 3 year wait, we are now in the process of registering our PTA as a charity. This has taken a long time to come through, but our office bearers and teaching staff are now finalising the documentation to submit our application.

    Covid still remains an issue this academic year, so as with last year, we will have to keep this all in mind with fundraising ideas.


    We look forward to the year ahead, and will value your support.

    Ampertaine PTA
