A free breakfast for the whole school in January.

Dear Parents/Carers


This year the Orchard Vale School Council are thinking big and our first event will be a Bonfire Night on Friday 2nd November from 5pm-7:30pm. Tickets can be purchased up until the day of the Bonfire and will cost £1 for adults, £1.50 for children, prices will include one free drink per person and there will be lots of free activities for the children to enjoy.


There will be hot food on sale; pizza slices at 50p a slice, hotdogs at £1 each and extra drinks at 50p each. The activities will include making chocolate sparklers and a treasure trail in the forest school, as well as a few more! Activities will stop at 6:30 and our Bonfire will be lit; adults and children can watch from the field (remember to wear your wellies!).


If you would like to join us, please fill in the slip attached to the letter and bring your cash to the KS2 library area on Tuesday or Thursday mornings between 8:30 and 9am where tickets will be issued.


We look forward to seeing you soon
