Penny for the Guy

To celebrate Bonfire night in style we are holding a 'Guy' building competition. 

To celebrate Bonfire night in style we are holding a 'Guy' building competition. The aim of the competition is to have some fun building guys and maybe win a prize! Those of you who would like to enter have the half term holiday to make your entry.

Please follow these simple guidelines:

  • Each guy should be created of legally combustible material, i.e. we don’t want anything that may cause a health hazard, such as bicycle tyres or fireworks hidden inside!
  • Completed guys, of whatever size and shape, should be delivered to school on the 31st October and placed under the outside classroom
  • Ensure your name and class is clearly displayed on your guy
  • Please notify Miss Lewis if you DO NOT want your guy burnt on the bonfire!

The guys will be displayed for the week with a collection tin in front of them.  We would be grateful if parents and children would pop some pennies (or more!) into the collection boxes. The guy collecting the most money will be named as the winner!

All money collected will be added to the PTA fund and used to enrich the learning of our children. 

The guys, with the permission of the designers, will be burnt on the top of the bonfire on Friday 4th November.
