Alexandra School’s Christmas Charity:
Suzy and the School Council met earlier this term to discuss which charity we would support this year. Once every class had voted, the popular choice was Text Santa. Text Santa raises money and awareness for six UK based charities: Age UK, Barnado’s, BeatBullying, British Heart Foundation, CLIC Sargent, and Help the Hospices. Please contribute at least £2 for each ticket.
we sell a new school mug. This year has been a period
of some considerable change for Alexandra, becoming
an academy and changing heads! So our mug design was
inspired by the phrase that sums up Alexandra, regardless
of any changes: Learning Together. The winning design
was by Ahmed Mustafa Maihanwal. The Mugs cost £4.50.
All proceeds go to our Christmas Charity.
generous in your contribution to the appeal and buy
one or more school mugs—they will make lovely Christmas
presents. This year we have also chosen to put Ahmed’s
design on a travel card wallet, perfect for holding
your Oyster card. Travel card wallets are just £1.00.
Message from Head of School
we welcomed 17 new children and several new members of
staff. We also became an academy and joined the Eden Academy
Trust. Lots of changes but still, at heart, the same Alexandra
School! Now we can look back over a busy but successful
autumn term. It already feels as if our new children and
staff have always been part of our school.
We are all looking forward to coming together for the
Christmas Show on Wednesday and then our yummy Christmas
Lunch on Friday!
On behalf of all the staff at Alexandra, I would like
to wish our children and families a very Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year.
We will see you all again on Monday 6th January!
Parent and Family News
It has been great to see so many parents visiting school this term, for a wide range of events. Parents have been invited in for class assemblies (which you can still watch on Fronter) and for class cookery activities early in the term. The cookery theme continued with Family Learning, which ran for five weeks. If you have the opportunity to sign up for Family Learning next term—do! Families who take part are always very positive about the sessions.
various Gate Gossip afternoons and workshops this term,
discussing topics like home school communication, transition
to high school, Signalong and reading. Last week saw our
wonderful Table Top Sale, organised by Jan and her band
of parent helpers.
We are currently
planning our parent and family events for next term, so if
you have any ideas or requests, do let Jan know. We have a
request for you!
As has now become
tradition, we would like to serve some mince pies and mulled
wine (or fruit juice) before the Christmas Show on Wednesday
18th December. The school will provide the drinks, but we
would like your help with the mince pies. We have provided
a link to a simple mince pie recipe. If you have time, it
would be great if you and your child could make some mince
pies, then send them in to school by Wednesday 18th (in a
box with your child’s name on). Baking is a lovely activity
to do together! If you would prefer to bake something else
festive-gingerbread biscuits perhaps - then that would be

We hope that you
have all got into the habit of checking Fronter regularly
this term, to read the weekly class newsflashes, watch any
assembly videos and find out what is for lunch! If you’ve
been away from Fronter for a bit, do check it out. If you
have any questions or suggestions about Fronter, send Georgie
an email at email@example.com
