St Matthew's Primary School & Nursery



We will be hosting our Virtual Christmas Market on Friday 11th December, Christmas lunch day and Christmas Jumper Day.


Each class has been busy making beautiful Christmas craft items and will be selling these directly from their class bubble at £2 per item. Photos of these items will be posted on google classroom and class pages of the school website early next week. Please can children bring the exact money into the class on Friday 11th December, then they will come home with their amazing creations.


We have four jars on show in the office window - two jars with chocolates, one with sweets and one with lego bricks. The child whose guess is the closest to the actual number of items, will win the full jar! Entries cost just £1 per guess.


We have two lovely toys kindly knitted by Mrs Rider - a snowman and a reindeer that require a name. Please submit your name suggestions and the lucky winners who are drawn will win the toys. Each entry is £1 per name.



We are very fortunate to have an amazing list of Raffle Prizes (please see the list below). Tickets are £1 each. For each ticket purchased we will write the child's name and class on the back of the ticket and put it in a box. On the day, we will pull out names from the box and assign prizes in the order they are drawn.

As well as the tickets that have been sent home, extra tickets can be purchased from Wednesday at drop off at the Early Years entrance, the black gates in St Ann's Lane and at the red doors in Old Pye Street, as well as in Breakfast and After School Club with Fit for Sport. Please can we ask for exact money, as no change will be given.

 For cashless payments, we have created a payment item in Arbor so that you can make your payments online. Please log into your child's account and you will be able to find the entry under Activities/Trips. Please could you simply follow up your payment with a brief email stating how your money should be allocated - whether it is to buy tickets for the raffle, guess the number of chocolates/sweets or lego bricks in the jar or naming the snowman or reindeer.  Entry to all the games will be subject to us receiving a payment.

 All draws for prizes will take place on Friday 11th December. The film will be made available to parents in the afternoon and the winners will given their prizes on the day or notified the following Monday.

Please feel free to email the school office if you have any questions.  ​Thank you to all our families for your support and generosity towards this festive fundraising event.
