Noticeboard

  • This Friday, 18th March is Red Nose Day. If your child would like to wear a red nose or paint one on for the day then they can bring in a donation. We shall also use carpet times through the day to share some jokes so this is also something you could think about together before Friday! We will be supporting this charity this year as the money raised this year will along with other great causes, will also be funding organisations that are supporting people right now in Ukraine.
  • Our Year 1 Performance will hopefully happen in the final week of term. We will be doing a performance at 9:30 on Wednesday 6th April and possibly a second on Thursday 7th April, if we need to be mindful of numbers in the hall. We will confirm this nearer the time. 
  • You will find below a grid showing the sessions to be taught each week. They do not exactly follow days as each class has different sessions due to support and PE timings being different but it allows you to see the week as a snapshot of sessions. 
  • We will always aim to get outside, whatever the weather, as much as possible so children will really need a waterproof coat each day.
