Welcome to our weekly newsletter where we share relevant information with you about what has been happening here at Bracken Leas and events planned in future weeks.

Colours of Autumn Photographic Competition

Children in Need 2020

Juniper House are asking if the local Brackley and surrounding community could help residents to create a remembrance memorial display at Juniper House Care Home. Filling the home and exterior with poppies made by our community. These can be painted, sewn or made from recycled bottles! We don’t mind how you choose to make them, let your creativity run wild. Please drop any poppy donations to our reception foyer as soon as you’ve finished them so we can start creating the display. Thank you.

Waterbottles, PE Kits & Lunches

As the number of Covid cases is unfortunately on the rise, we need to minimise the contact our staff in the school office have with items belonging to the children.

Please can you ensure that packed lunches, PE bags, water bottles etc come to school with your child/children. Christmas card templates should also be sent in to school this way too unless you have a child in Year 1. For Year 1 only, please drop your completed templates into the school office. Your support on this is greatly appreciated.

Brackley Elves

Please join Brackley Elves Facebook Group. The elves are putting on all sorts of activities and events for children in and around Brackley over the next two months. Bracken Leas will be taking part in some of these and there are others which you can take part in together.
