SIGNS OF AUTUMN

The Nursery children have been looking for signs of Autumn this week. They collected leaves from the playground and enjoyed exploring their colours and textures.

 

 

WATERSTONES VISITS

Children across school have been enjoying their trips to Waterstones for the last 2 weeks. We're really excited to receive our book deliveries! Please enjoy reading your new books together at home.

Parents’ Evenings

Don’t forget that Parents’ Evenings are next week. They are very important as they give you the chance to find out how your child is getting on at school, and what you can do to support their education. They are on Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th for Classes 11 and 17, and Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th for all other classes.

Please speak to your child’s teacher if you haven’t already got an appointment.
