Easter Egg Raffle
Everyone was very excited to see if they had won an delicious Easter Egg in our raffle! We had lots of donations and therefore lots of winners!
We would like to say a huge "thank you" to everyone for donating and taking part. The event raised a lot of money for the school.
Whole School Disco
Thank you to everyone who organised another very successful disco!. This fun event was enjoyed by children and adults alike with everyone dancing to the latest tunes and some of them winning prizes for their amazing moves!
Marvelous Movie Night
Once again we had a very successful Movie Night! The children changed into their pyjamas, enjoyed popcorn, a cookie made by our kitchen staff, and a refreshing drink, and settled down to watch their favourite movie.
Thank You to Our Wonderful PTA
Since September, our wonderful PTA has raised an amazing £4,500 which has benefitted the children through the purchase of new books in the class book corners, and will also go towards the school’s new Wellbeing Garden.
They have organised some amazing events especially at such a busy time of the year.
Carols on the Common was a great success and brought together both Riverhead and Amherst parents, as well as local residents. The Advent Calendar and Hamper Raffle raised lots of money and well done to all the winners.
Advent Calendar Raffle
Our PTA Christmas events started with our amazing Advent Calendar Raffle. We had some fantastic calendars including a "fidget calendar", chocolate calendars and traditional paper calendars and the event raised £850. for the school.
The endless commitment and enthusiasm of our wonderful PTA meant that were able to purchase 30 new iPads for the children to use. There will always be an important place in the classroom for pen and paper, but it is reassuring to know that Riverhead Infants' is keeping up to date with the latest technology giving the children a wonderful start to a “well rounded” education.
The Riverhead Carnival
Thank you to everyone who helped at the Riverhead Carnival. The combined Riverhead and Amherst stall raised an amazing £687 which was shared between both schools.
Nearly New Uniform Sales
A big "thank you" to Mrs Holden, Mrs Miles and Mrs Tonge for organising our Nearly New Sale. The last sale raised nearly £80.
Our Wonderful PTA
Thank you to our wonderful PTA who purchased a license for every child in the school to access the Collins Big Cat E-books online library during lockdown. Class teachers allocated two books each week according to the child's colour band. The resource was a great addition to the home learning and benefitted the children enormously.
The PTA also donated money for the new books in the classrooms. Again, every child benefitted from these lovely books.
Bangers and Bingo!
A huge “thank you” goes to Miss Pegg, Mrs Joyce and their team of volunteers for organising another amazing PTA event which raised £450 for the school. The Year One and Two really enjoyed the Bangers and Bingo with everyone enthusiastically taking part in the fun and very lively rounds! Thanks also go to our chef Mrs. Cunniliffe who cooked the delicious bangers for the event and well done to all the winners.
PTA QUIZ NIGHT
Congratulations to the “Sizzlers”, who were the winning team at this year’s PTA Quiz! This year’s quiz was led by Mr and Mrs Osborne and was a great success with everyone having fun and using their brainpower! The event raised a fantastic £1,870, well done everyone!
New Computer Suite
We would like to say a very big thank to everyone who has supported the PTA and the school by giving their time, suggestions, organisational skills and money to raise funds for our wonderful new computer suite. The suite has enhanced our computer curriculum by providing each child with their own computer in a bright and cheerful space which enthuses them to participate in their lessons.
You may have noticed the fantastic work going on in the Early Year's outside classroom. We now have learning zone sheds, new planters, climbing apparatus and mark making boards. We are very excited with this new equipment and would like to say a huge thank you to the PTA for giving us the funds to buy it!
Brilliant Boat and Terrific Train!
The children were delighted to play on our new boat and train! These are a wonderful focus in the playground and have already had a lot of use along with the three new picnic benches. All of our new equipment has been made using recycled bottles which encompasses our Eco School status. A very big thank you goes to the PTA for funding the new equipment.
New Class Furniture
The Year 1 and 2 children are enjoying their new classrooms which have been totally refitted thanks to the generosity of the PTA. The staff worked extremely hard over the summer to ensure that the new beech wood furniture and class colour schemes look perfect.
