Dear Parents / Carers


Friday mornings - Every Friday morning from 4th March parents and carers are invited to come into their child’s class to read, look at their child’s books and visit the classroom. This session will be from 8.45am to 8.55am. Please be aware that if Covid cases increase this may have to be suspended for a short time. We very much look forward to welcoming you into the classrooms.

 
Parents evenings - the online booking system is now open for both parents evenings in March. It will close for bookings on Thursday 3rd March at 11:30. Details here
 
Safer Internet Day - The 8th of February was Safer Internet Day. Please spend some time reading these resources and doing some of the activities.
Year 5 - After half term Year 5 will be designing and making boats as part of D&T week.  In preparation for this we are collecting empty plastic containers and bottles. We would also appreciate any donations of polystyrene you may have at home. Please could any used containers be washed and brought to school next week, in preparation for D&T week.
