Friends of Twin Sails Infant School & Nursery

What do we do?

The PTA organises activities to enrich the children's school experiences and raise money for the school. Everything we raise goes towards helping the children in some way. Here are some of the things that we were involved with in the 2017/2018 academic year...

 

  • Helped to send out 'first week of school' photos to all Reception children in September
  • Put together the writing packs for new reception children
  • Sold High Vis jackets for donations 
  • Ran uniform sales (plus uniform was available to buy at the Summer Fayre)
  • Helped to organise and run Santas Grotto for all children to attend during the school day
  • Organised personalised Christmas cards and gifts for parents to purchase
  • Ran a Regifting Raffle for those Christmas gifts you don't need
  • Ran an Easter Egg Hunt during the school day with the Easter Bunny making a special appearance!
  • Organised and ran the very successful Summer Fayre
  • Organised personalised year group tea towels for parents to buy as keepsakes or gifts
  • Paid for and helped with the Year 2 Leavers day activities. We provided craft activities, a disco, a small gift as a keepsake of their time at Twin Sails and a water balloon fight!

Christmas Grotto

On the 19th December Santa will be visiting our school.  The PTA work hard to make this extra special, decorating the studio to look like a winter wonderland (see last years photos below).  Each child will meet Santa and come home with a small gift and hopefully warm memories.

This week a small slip and envelope will be coming home in book bags asking for a £2.50 donation towards this grotto.  Please return to the office, thank you

Book Donations

The school is looking for more reading material for our children, so we've been tasked with sourcing some.  Last year we received some lovely donations from various publishers and book suppliers, this year we're asking parents to help. 

If you have any good quality reading books you no longer want, please pop them along to the school office.  These will be sorted and those suitable for school put into circulation.  Those not quite making the cut will be added to the PTA's book stall at the summer fayre.

Uniform Sale

Our uniform sales this year have raised over £110 for the school.  We will run more "preloved sales" later on in the year. Please keep your donations coming if you have any good quality uniform that you no longer need.

If you have a specific need outside of the uniform sale dates, contact Natalie Wines through the school office, office@twinsailsinfant.co.uk, and she will see if we have anything suitable.

Classroom Readers

The school are looking for more parents readers.  These parents give up a small amount of their spare time (perhaps a morning or afternoon a week) and will sit with a select number of children, reading with them on a one-to-one basis.  There is no teaching requirement, you don't even have to understand phonics to do this, they just need people to listen to them read.  If they encounter a word they can't sound out (and you can't either!) just tell them the word and move on.

If you would like to do this contact the school office for more details, office@twinsailsinfant.co.uk

Summer Fayre 2018

Including £1000 matched funding from Barclays we raised a whopping record-breaking £4277.88 - well done everyone!

 

A big thank you must go to Papa Johns for donating 300 pizzas to us, Sainsburys for donating 100 bottles of water and Tesco for running a strawberries and cream stall and donating the monies raised to us. THANK YOU!!

 

Book Review

We were very lucky to receive some new books from a publishing company. We were asked to review them so that the publisher could include the reviews on the website.

 

Imogen Stanning in Jellyfish read the book over the Easter holiday. See what she has to say about the book... maybe you would like to read it too.

Thank you so much to Specsavers in Poole for donating 200 high vis jackets to our school.

The PTA created the most amazing grotto for the children. It was so magical and wonderful to see all the children's faces as they entered the grotto.
