Puzzle Partners meet at least half termly with the aim of encouraging closer links between Home, School and our Community. We often support the school by helping to organise fundraising events, but we also have a useful social function too, many of our events give an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.
All parents/carers and teachers are welcome to attend our informal meetings which are usually held in the evening. We also host coffee mornings during the daytime thus enabling all parents the opportunity to become involved. We are always looking for new ideas and suggestions.
Last year we held a World Cup themed evening, where children were able to take part in a variety of sporting challenges ranging from football skills, a penalty shoot-out, blow football and a World Cup quiz to name but a few! We had a sponsored ‘Scootathon’ which supported the scootability training that had taken place in Year 2. Children were able to take part in a number of creative competitions such as ‘decorate an Easter Egg’.
Currently we are raising funds for new playground equipment to help engage the children in purposeful play. This will add to our range of equipment that encourages children to be creative and play cooperatively with each other.
There are many different ways you can help Puzzle Partners, whether you have lots of time to offer or not. Some of the roles are time-consuming, although also rewarding. If you can’t commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently (eg running a stall at the summer fair, baking for a cake sale), and you can always support our events by simply turning up! If you are interested in joining us please give your name at the school office or see Mrs Travis or Mrs Naffati.
