Dear all

 

Thank you to CSG Village Library for welcoming our Year 3 and Year 6 children on Monday morning. All children had informal class photos taken on Monday morning. Proofs will be available to view and order online after half term. Year 4 had a lovely afternoon pond dipping yesterday. They had worked really hard on their assembly and were really pleased that so many parents came to see their assembly on Wednesday. Year 5 have had a good week despite all being a little tired from their residential last week - hopefully all of the lost property has found its way home. Year 6 have had another busy week making and selling items for Mini Enterprise week. We were lucky that the weather for our sponsored walk this afternoon - please visit our Sponsor Page for further details of our fundraising this year and to donate your sponsor money. Thank you to parent helpers who have been in to help with both Mini Enterprise and Sponsored Walk this week.
