Hidden on the High Street 2016

As you know, the theme for village day this year is Roald Dahl This year, the Codicote pixies & fairies have hidden a number of magical items around the village and we need your help to find them. We know where they are but we don’t know what they have hidden. Can you help to tell us? The items will be hidden in the windows or another location you can see from the street. In some places there may be more than one item – so write down all the things you see (or how many of the same thing).
As a thank you for your help, the children who correctly list the most items will win some amazing prizes.
You just need to fill in the table downloadable below telling us what you can see in each place and hand it back to the school office by Monday 25
th July. The winner will be notified at the start of next term.

Greetings to one and all, as once again we prepare ourselves for one of the busiest days of the year, yes, it’s Village Day 2016!

The theme this year will be “ROALD DAHL”, a subject that i'm know will be well recieved and I am sure participating floats and walkers will reflect this in the Village Day parade.

Attractions this year include, an Animal Corner, Dance and Gymnastic displays, the local Pony Club, BMX stunt team, a major incident in the arena? and traditional favourites such as the Codicote School Maypole Dancers along with some new attractions AND MUCH MUCH MORE.

As usual, the fun starts at 13.00 pm with our Village Day Parade arriving at the field for the traditional “Best Float” competition and the Grand Opening.

Once again, on behalf of Codicote I would like to thank the Village Day committee and all the volunteers, whose outstanding efforts make this day so special.

All that remains for me to do is wish you all a very Happy Village Day 2016.
