Dear All
Mum's Day: It was lovely to see so many mums and other relatives come in to school today. The children really enjoyed making cards and visiting the cafe with their special visitors. A huge thank you to our wonderful PTA for their support of this event.
Gardening volunteers: Mrs White has kindly organised some Monday afternoon gardening slots for this half term but we need one extra adult per session for these to run.If you have a current DBS for the school and would like to help on any of the following dates please contact the School Office. Sessions are usually from 13:30 to 15:00 and children from a class are taken out in groups of up to 10 for half an hour, We have one adult per afternoon but need an additional helper for Monday 26th June, Monday 10th July and Monday 17th July.
