  • Advance Date Warning: We will be inviting 1 parent for each child to come to our ‘Learning Share’ time to be held on the patios. This will be a chance for you to look through your child’s work with them and then in small groups come into the classroom to take a look around and see where all their amazing learning has been taking place. You will also have the opportunity to make a parent/carer contribution to their annual report whilst you’re there. There will be more details about this in our Newsletter. The day is  Wednesday 7th July The exact timings will be confirmed nearer the time.
  • Remember to click the link to plans and resources below if your child is needing to self-isolate but is well. Please email the class email address if you find yourself in this position and are unsure.
  • We will continue to aim to get outside as much as possible so they really need a waterproof coat each day.
