The Weekly Newsletter of Tockington Manor School 7th November 2014 TOCKINGTON TRACKERTOCKINGTON TRACKERTOCKINGTON TRACKERTOCKINGTON TRACKER Verity Smith We had a wonderful assembly on our first day back after half term. Verity and her guide dog Uffa kept us enthralled. The children got a chance to meet Uffa who loved the attention. We learnt that it costs £50,000 to train a guide dog. Verity inspired us all with her positivity and warmth. She is training for the 2016 Olympics in Rio as a dressage competitor. She is also a singer/songwriter and has just appeared as Marilyn Monroe in the theatre. Verity has been nominated into the final for the Inspirational Guide Dog Owners of the Year Awards in London. Verity has agreed to come back and tell us about her many and varied achievements and will also sing for us! Good Intention and Politeness Award Congratulations to the following children who have been nominated for the Good Intention and Politeness Award: Oliver Shutt, Henry Allan-Jones, Mathis Bellino, Harry Huby, Dallis Jones, Otis Walker, Ben Jacobi and Katie Woodhouse. The award for the second quarter goes to Henry Allan-Jones for ‘being reliable and having a good attitude’. English Department Scholastic Book Club Great news! We're running a Scholastic Book Club to earn free books for our school. We'll be sending the Book Club leaflets home so that you and your child can choose from the latest exciting selection of books. Please place your order online at http://schools.scholastic.co.uk/tockington-manor by November 21st, 2014 to ensure that you get your books in time for Christmas. Online ordering is really simple. You will buy books for Tockington Manor School Book Club and they will be delivered to school. Many of the books are discounted and you can view them online. Books which are no longer available are : Pocket Manual for Football Stars; Tell the Time Book and The Day the Crayons Quit. This book club replaces the Puffin Book Club which is no longer operational. I have just been able to spend over £250 on books for the school, paid for by rewards earned through orders made by yourselves. On top of this we have spent our Readathon rewards and our commission from the Travelling Book Fair, so your children will see lots of new books appearing in the library in the very near future. We will also be bringing you news about our Reading Challenge and the very exciting new Junior Librarian software, which will allow all of our children to browse books in our library from the comfort of their own homes! Watch this space for more information on this great new service! Do please take a look at the catalogue and order online to help us to keep expanding our library stock! Christmas Crafts We have many fantastic crafts lined up for the Christmas Fayre - simple and effective things that the children can make for Christmas. I have set myself a massive task to collect about 100 Robertson's style 1lb jam jars with lids on for one of the crafts. Please could you tink of us next time you throw out a jam jar? All donations gratefully received. I will put a box out in the back lobby for all donations. Then hopefully, the next time you see your jam  jars, they will look completely different! Monmouth Prep Schools Challenge This Sunday four of our Year 8s will be off to Monmouth School to test out their General Knowledge against many other prep schools from the region.

The Weekly Newsletter of Tockington Manor School 7th November 2014 TOCKINGTON TRACKERTOCKINGTON TRACKERTOCKINGTON TRACKERTOCKINGTON TRACKER Bonfire Night FOTM are really looking forward to welcoming you and your children to bonfire night next Friday. Here are some reminders about the timings and some things to note. Nursery and Lower School will finish at normal time and then parents and children can arrive at 4.30 pm for food and disco and sweets, glow sticks and face painting. The bonfire will be lit at 6.10 pm when they may leave or are welcome to stay on for longer. Please be aware, however, that this is when the Upper School will be ready to have their fun and so there will be many more and much bigger children around, especially in the disco, so please keep a close eye on smaller children. At all times, unless your child has been booked in to aftercare or to board for the night they remain the responsibility of parents and not the school, teachers or members of FOTM . This includes supervising them on the walk up to and down from the bonfire, in the disco and when playing outside. Upper School children must be collected by 6.00 pm unless boarding, but please send them in with a change of clothes (probably warm ones! as they will have supervised changing at 5.45 pm to enable them to be ready and waiting for you at 6.00 pm. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible and thank you in advance for coming to support the event and the school. Have fun everyone! Leanne Edwards
