Family BBQ evening - Friday 17th June 2016

 


 This Friday (17th June) sees the return of the Family BBQ.
It was very popular last year and everyone had a great night.  Everyone loved toasting their marshmallows on the campfire.

If you would like to come this year, tickets are available in the office.  Price of entry is £2 for adults and 50p for children.

You can bring your own drink but there will be hot and soft drinks available.

Everyone is welcome!!

Den building, Reading area, fire building area

The Friends of Roydon Primary School bought us these three places to have fun in.😄



So far Me and Adam and Finlay have only used the reading area and have thought its a good place to get fresh air whilst reading the top 50 Roydon Books. Also different teachers have read us different books like The Whale in the River Thames.

Happy New Year from FoRPS

We hope you've all had a restful and happy new year.  We'd like to take this opportunity to update you all on what's going on with the FoRPS this year.

The new committee consists as follows :

Chairperson - Vicki McClure
Vice Chairpersons - Steph Self and Emma Cooper-Green
Secretary - Andie Childs
Treasurer - Louise Nevard
Publicity officer - Vanessa Pochin
The rest of the committee is made up of fab parents.

So far we have organised the Holly Fayre which was a great success. Visits from Santa and his reindeer brought in visitors from far and wide and we managed to make over £2049!


The committee meets on a regular basis to plan events, organise fundraising and eat cake.  If you would like to join us you would be very welcome.  There are notice boards in the playground and on the school advertising the meeting dates. There is also a Facebook page.

Where the money goes!!



The Friends have had a fantastic year of fundraising.  The support of parents and families is, of course,  vital for not only raising the money but also running the events.   I thought it might be nice for you to see what type of things all that money is spent on in school and how all those events really do benefit every child.

The FoRPS generously support educational visits for every class.


The Hedgehogs and Woodpeckers visited
Lopham Fen.


                                                                                       
                                                                                                      The Rabbits and Foxes visted Kentwell Hall dressed
                                                                                                  as tudors as part of their topic work.

The Badgers and Squirrels visited the Norfolk Show
The Otters, Owls and Deers saw Goiodnight Mr Tom at the
Theatre Royal in Norwich.




The Friends helped Mrs Clarke to organise and run the Golden Jubilee celebrations
and presented each pupil with a celebratory mug.
The Friends paid for a resident artist to work with all the children during Art Week



Following the delivery of our new ipads the Friends have been very supportive in
providing a Mini Mac and whiteboard link cables to make sure we can get the best use
of them.
The Friends have just agreed to fund almost a £1000 of new music equipment
for use with every class.  Watch this space for the delivery!!

This is just a small insight into the support given by the FoRPS to the school.  They have provided many, many more resources over the years and have contributed to visits and outside visitors to enhance the learning in school.
