Everything you wanted to know, let’s start at the beginning
Reception, KS1 and KS2
…are not a new kind of super heroes, Reception is the first year group at school, KS1 is Key Stage 1, meaning classes of Year 1 and Year 2 and the playground on Sheen Road and KS2 is, but I bet you got it by now Key Stage 2 and refers to Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 and the playground on Queens Road.
…Each month, two years (one in KS1 and one in KS2 are in charge of holding a bake sale. Bake sales are always held on a Friday after pick up. You will usually be reminded a bit before by your class reps if it’s your turn. On your year’s bake sale Friday, you bring cakes (you bake, you buy…no difference for us, only no nuts please!) in the morning. Please take them to the cookery room (just past the office). Your class rep may ask you to come and help with setting up the table and selling the cakes Bake sales last around half an hour, are very hectic and the kids love it.
We also have a Cake Raffle on the same day. Someone from your class bakes a beautiful cake (presented with a bit of cellophane and a ribbon) that is raffled off. Raffle tickets are sold by the class reps in charge of the Bake Sale (or any volunteer for the class)for several days before the bake sale and generate a healthy profit. Raffle cakes need to be brought to school first thing on Friday morning so that it can be on display for those selling tickets.
For the Summer Fair, all classes are bringing cakes to be sold on the day.
…for a start, anyone with a decent explanation about the origin of this word, please enlighten. Well, I don’t know what it means but now I know it works On a said Friday, pupils receive the authorisation not to wear school uniform and they have to pay a little “fee” in exchange : any bottle, chocolates…depending on what the PSA is cooking!
