Easter Egg Hunt  2020  

 When the Easter Bunny called the Friends of Finchale PTA and asked them to find a way to make sure the annual Easter Hunt still took place........ well we had to find a way!

The hunt took place in the morning of the last day of term, and the rain just about stayed away for us. The children had a great time running around looking for the hidden "eggs" (even the big children!) in their class bubbles, and all received an Easter Treat at the end.

Our Valentine trail winners were the Moore family, well done to them! Here are a few picture from the trail, including one of the the winner's prize... Valentine cupcakes! We raised £104 from the trail, for our funds, so thank you to all that took part.

Valentine Trail

In the spirit of keeping PTA events going, and staying right within the current guidelines, we have organised our own Friends of Finchale Valentine's Trail!  It's really simple to take part. heart


Between 10th and 14th February, across areas of Newton Hall, some of our fabulous friends will be displaying character "love" posters in their windows!  Each poster will have a picture of a well-known character..... maybe from a Disney film, from a book, or from a TV show.  All you have to do, is during your permitted daily exercise/walk (only within your own support bubble!), locate our characters and then match them with their Valentine. So, if you see a poster with Mickey Mouse, you would write down his Valentine Minnie Mouse.


Across Newton Hall there are 28 Valentines to be found, grouped into 6 different small locations. You could choose to go out and find them all in one walk, or spread it out over a few days - whichever suits you the best.


To receive your map, please just send a £2 donation on Parent Pay to the PTA Valentine's Trail and we'll email you your copy of the map. Once it's filled in with as many as you can find, simply take a photo / scan your sheet and email it back to us. There will be a prize chosen at random from those with the most correctly matched Valentines.heart


Enjoy, have a little fun, and most importantly stay safe and look after each other.

Visit from Santa

Even in these strange times, it was great that Santa could still make his yearly visit to Finchale. He sanitised his hands, and stayed social distanced from the children in his outdoor grotto. Thank you to the Kemp family for decorating his lovely grotto! As an extra bonus, every child in school received a little present.

Friends of Finchale once again gave us a day to remember on Thursday 29th March 2018 by providing the prizes for our Egg Decorating Competition and putting on an amazing Egg Hunt. Every child in school participated in the search for eggs and had huge fun! They all received a treat as an entrant or winner. Thank you to all of the parents who came along and ran the event.
