Orchard Playground Appeal Fundraiser
We are very excited to invite you to attend our Handmade Christmas Workshops at Orchard Primary School, 16th November at 7pm. 
You will have the opportunity to learn how to make beautiful handmade greeting cards or create a traditional Christmas wreath whilst enjoying a festive drink or two and nibbles. 
As well as being a lovely festive evening with friends, by getting crafty you'll also be helping us to raise money for our playground appeal. 

All materials and guidance will be provided and includes a glass of wine or soft drink on arrival and nibbles to enjoy whilst creating your masterpieces. There will also be a bar available on the night to purchase drinks. 

We are holding a Harvest Creativity Competition to help raise funds for the kS1 playground. 
If you would like your child to enter, please send in their Harvest themed artwork with a £1 entry fee to their class teacher by Monday September 27th. 
Mrs Heathcote will be judging the entries and the winners will be announced the following week. 
There will be a prize for the winner of each class and the overall lucky winner will receive an amazing sleepover tepee package including midnight feasts! 
You can be as creative as you like, drawing, painting, collage, poems, prayers, sculpture....... good luck and we look forward to seeing your master pieces!
