Infant - Weekly Email - Friday 6th October

Dear Parents/Carers,
Maths Story Books
We are continuing with our weekly maths focused storytime to help children embed key skills through stories. If you would like to help the school and donate a book, please click on the link below:
School Photos
The school photographers will be with us on Monday.  Please can we ask that all children come into school in their school uniform wearing either a jumper or a cardigan.  As Year 1 have PE on Monday, please send them into school wearing their plimsolls/trainers.  They do not need their PE kit.
Water Bottles
Water bottles must only contain water, no squash please.
Car Parking
If you must park in the Memorial Hall car park, please remember that there are often children crossing the car park from Woodland School at 3.15pm and it can be extremely dangerous when cars are reversing in and out of spaces.  If you can, please make use of the free parking in Blizzards Yard car park.  If you require a permit, please contact the office.
