During the last 9 years children and families attending Jo Jingles classes around the country have helped to raise over £650,000 for the charity!! Gaynor, is currently busy getting all the children and parents involved again. She and her teachers will be running a sponsored ‘singalong’ during all classes the week of Children In Need. ‘Jo Jingles had a Teddy’ is a special adaption of the song ‘Miss Polly had a dolly’ and the children will be learning all the actions with the help of ‘Jo’ and getting sponsored by family and friends to perform the song during that week!

Totally Scrum-ptious! escabeche sponsors West Bridgford Youth Rugby escabeche, West Bridgford’s freshly cooked tapas bar and restaurant, is proudly supporting local sport by agreeing an exciting sponsorship deal with West Bridgford Rugby Club’s Youth. The sponsorship will see the escabeche logo emblazoned across WBRFC’s website and pitchside hoardings, youth team shirts and balls. escabeche co-owner Jon Perkins enthused: “We’re an independent business based in West Bridgford, so supporting a local club makes perfect sense. Sincerely, it’s smashing to know that we are a part of a brilliant organisation that helps kids get out there and work up an appetite every Sunday morning, hopefully ahead of an hearty escabeche Sunday lunch!” West Bridgford Rugby Club Youth Team Coach Clive Hewitt added: “It was great when escabeche approached us about sponsoring youth rugby. At youth team level, every penny is needed for balls, equipment, ground upkeep etc., so it makes a real difference when a local business puts their hand in their pocket and supports our organisation. We’re extremely grateful and hope this can be a mutually beneficial, long term agreement.” As well as a financial contribution, escabeche is also offering members of West Bridgford Rugby Club a 10% reduction off their main menu between Monday and Thursday. About escabeche escabeche tapas bar and restaurant is open every day from 10am serving freshly cooked tapas dishes influenced by the flavours of the Mediterranean. On Sunday afternoon, escabeche serve traditional favourites with a Mediterranean twist and on Sunday evenings, there’s live acoustic music by Nottingham’s finest musicians.

Tax Credits... Explained!

If you’re responsible for at least one child or young person, you may qualify for Child Tax Credit. You don’t have to be working to claim Child Tax Credit. If you work, but are on a low income, you may also qualify for Working Tax Credit. Tax Credits are not taxable.

Child Tax Credits Child Tax Credit is paid to you if you are responsible for at least one child or young person who normally lives with you. You can usually claim Child Tax Credit for any child who lives with you until 31 August after their 16th birthday; and children under 20, if they’re in certain types of education or training.

Working Tax Credits If you’re responsible for children you need to be aged at least 16, and work the following hours to get Working Tax Credit: if you’re single, you need to do paid work of at least 16 hours a week; if you’re in a couple, your joint paid working hours need to be at least 24 a week, with one of you working at least 16 hours a week. If your joint working hours are less than 24 a week, you can still get Working Tax Credit if one of the following applies: one of you is aged 60 or over and working at least 16 hours a week; one of you is disabled and working at least 16 hours a week; one of you works at least 16 hours a week, and the other is entitled to Carer’s Allowance - even if they don’t get any payments because they receive other benefits instead, or one of you works at least 16 hours a week, and the other is ‘incapacitated’, an in-patient in hospital, or in prison (serving a custodial sentence, or remanded in custody awaiting trial or sentence).

Entitlement Child Tax Credit

Family element - the basic element Child element Disabled child element Severely disabled child element

Working Tax Credit

Basic element Couples/Lone parent 30 hour element Disability element Childcare element:

£545 £2,720 £3,015 £1,220

£545 £2,720 £3,015 £1,220

£1,920 £1,970 £ 790 £2,855 *

£1,920 £1,970 £ 790 £2,855 *

(*An extra payment if you pay registered or approved childcare. Up to 70% of your costs, subject to a maximum limit as follows: £175 per week if you’re paying for one child, £300 per week if you’re paying for two or more children.)

Income Taper If you are entitled to both types of Tax Credits there is a reduction in your entitlement once your income exceeds the threshold which is currently £6,420; if you are only entitled to child tax credit the threshold is currently £15,910. Your entitlement is reduced by 41% of the income which exceeds the threshold. For example Mary is a single mother; she works part time for 16 hours per week and she has 1 child aged 13. Her entitlement is as follows: Child tax credit: Family element £545, Child element £2,720 Total: £3,265 Working tax credit: Basic element £1,920, Lone parent £1,970, Total: £3,890 Total Tax Credit entitlement £7,155 Income for 16 hours per week (9.61/hr.=153.84/wk.) £8,000 The reduction is worked out as follows: Income is £8,000 minus threshold £6,420=£1580. 41% of £1580 is 647.80. Therefore the total tax credits payable is reduced by £647.80. Total Tax Credits payable (£7,155-£647.80) £6507.20 All information correct as of October 2013

Crafty Christmas Decorations!

Coteswood House School Government funded places available for 2-5year olds. Additional sessions on request at this well established kindergarten school

Christmas is a special time for families, and children love to be part of the preparations. Here are some great ideas for handmade decorations that can be adapted to suit all ages. You will need: coloured card & tissue paper, glue, paint/felt tips, tinsel, ribbons, decorative bits & beads (for over 3yrs), glitter, cotton wool, bells and whatever else you have! Visit ‘Activities’ on our website for a link to some great printable templates. Cut out a range of shapes from coloured card and let the children decorate with paint, felt tip pens, tissue paper, bits of tinsel, sequins, glitter, cotton wool etc. Once finished make a tree decoration by punching a hole at the top and threading ribbon through and tying to make a loop or stick the decorated shapes on to the front of folded card for Christmas cards. Let the children have their own special tree to decorate. Cut a triangular tree shape out of paper or card (lining wallpaper is good for this), and paint green using poster paints or emulsion tester pots. They can then stick on their card decorations and decorate their ‘wall tree’. Or collect one largeish branch, or a few small ones, spray white, silver or gold (adults only), and stand in a weighted container. The children can decorate with hanging decorations and their own creations. To make Christmas bells, cut out egg cartons and paint them or decorate with felt tips. Or spray gold (adults only), dab on PVA glue and sprinkle with glitter for a seasonal touch! Thread a needle with fine red ribbon and push the needle down through the top, through the loop of the bell and back up through the top. Tie into a loop. Bangles can be bought for pennies from charity shops and make brilliant bases for unusual tree decorations. Twist ribbons or tinsel around the bangle securing both ends with PVA glue. Stick on decorative bits and pieces round the bangle and/or tie a feature at the bottom using threaded beads, a ribbon bow with long ends, paper holly leaves with beads for berries...let your children’s imaginations run riot. Have an added feature at the top as well or perhaps a small mounted photo or decoration hanging in the centre. When done, tie a thread loop around the top and hang on the tree. Great gift idea! This stained glass lantern is both simple and effective. Remove the labels, wash and dry a jar. Cover the outside with PVA glue and apply either ripped or cut pieces of different coloured tissue paper using more glue to ensure there are no loose edges. Leave to dry. Wrap and secure wire around the top with a loop to make a hanging lantern or place on a heat resistant surface...add a tea light (adults only), and enjoy the seasonal glow!

Is your child Dyslexic?

Does your child have difficulty with reading, writing, spelling, short-term memory or organising themselves? Are they struggling to keep up at school? Are you concerned that they might be dyslexic? 10% of the population are thought to be dyslexic, 4% have severe dyslexia. New research suggests that 55% of children are failing their SAT’s due to undiagnosed dyslexia or specific learning difficulties.

Some Indicators of Dyslexia:

finds reading difficult and has problems understanding what they have read

reads a word on one page and can’t remember it on the next

finds spelling difficult, reverses letters e.g. b for d or was for saw. Spells the same word several different ways in a piece of work

learns how to spell a word one week and has forgotten it the next

has lots of ideas, but can’t put them down on paper

has difficulty remembering sequences such as the days of the week, the alphabet and times tables

is disorganised at home and school, constantly loses and forgets items and information

in other ways a bright and alert child

frustration has led to behavioural or emotional difficulties

If you have answered yes to many of the indicators above you may wish to contact our confidential Dyslexia Helpline for free information and advice. We can provide dyslexia screening, dyslexia assessment, one to one specialist tuition and courses for dyslexic children. Call to discuss how we can help your child overcome their difficulties.

New Youth Theatre is extremely pleased to announce that their next Junior production will be “Grease The Musical Jnr”. This fantastic show has not been available to amateur/community groups for over 20 years due to the phenomenal success it has received both in the West end and with the various touring productions. New Youth Theatre is delighted to be one of the first groups in the local area to be able to stage this production. Rehearsals will begin in January 2014 and show will be staged at the Bonington Theatre in Arnold from the 27th March – 1st April 2014. Grease is a musical about teens in love in the 1950’s. It’s California and greaser Danny Zuko and Australian Sandy Dumbrowski are in love. They spend time at the beach, but when they go back to school, what either of them doesn’t know is that they both now attend Rydell High. Danny’s the leader of the T-Birds, a group of black-jacket greasers while Sandy hangs with the Pink Ladies, a group of pinkwearing girls led by Rizzo. While ‘hip’ Danny and ‘wholesome’ Sandy resolve the problems of their mutual attraction for each other, the gang sings and dances its way through such nostalgic scenes as the pyjama party, the prom, the burger palace, and the drive-in movie. In the end Sandy realises that she must change herself to truly be accepted by Danny and his friends. The New Youth Theatre concept is simple. Children between the ages of 3-12 years are taught how to develop and improve their performing arts skills whilst rehearsing for a fully staged musical each term. Taster Sessions are being held in January 2014. To join the energetic cast in this and future productions call:
