The staff and governors would like to wish all pupils, parents and friends of Aldington Primary a very enjoyable and relaxing summer break. We look forward to welcoming all pupils back to school on Wednesday 3rd September.
Summer Reading Challenge
Don't forget to pop into your local library over the summer to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge! The Summer Reading Challenge inspires children to read in the long summer break when their reading skills can decline without the regular reading activity at school. This years theme is Mythical Maze and children aged 4-11 are invited to explore the maze and meet some weird and wonderful creatures from myths and legends along the way.
When children sign up to the Challenge, they receive a Mythical Maze poster. They then proceed to read six books over the holidays, collecting the ever-popular smelly stickers along the way, and ultimately winning a gold medal and certificate. Visit your local library or click on the Mythical Maze image above for more information.
Many of you will be aware that you have been able to raise money for the School just by doing your online shopping through the Spend and Raise website. This site has recently changed its name to Easy Fundraising and can be accessed through the link below.
Easy Fundraising will still offer the same wide range of online retailers with various levels of commission available to the School. Please pass this information on to friends and family so they can also use the site to do any online shopping which will give us the opportunity to use any commission raised to purchase new school equipment. Happy Shopping!
Power up to Recycle Challenge
Help us to win rewards for our School by recycling as many batteries as possible. This initiative will run from 3rd September 2014 to 30th January 2015. The school that collects the most batteries will win £500 to spend on school supplies, with second and third place winning £100. Please bring in any batteries you have and we will see how many we can collect!
