Witches' and Wizards' Writing Day

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Wednesday 22nd October we are having a Spooktacular witches and wizards writing day.

As writing is very important to us at The Ferns we like to give our children as many different experiences and exciting opportunities. Children will enjoy lots of activities based around literature of witches and wizards and will visit our very own Ferns Magical Castle, where they can take part in apple bobbing, pumpkin carving, drama and video making and other magical treats.

We would like to invite children to dress up as a witch or wizard as part of the fun, although this is not compulsory. It is not a non uniform day, so if children are not in fancy dress they need to be in school uniform. There is no donation for this event. Can we please ask that children in year 4 are able to change easily into their swimming outfits and face paint be avoided.

We hope the children have a Spooktacular day and we would like to thank you in advance for your hard work and support in your childrens education.
