Newsletter 1st December 2023
We are very busy at school as we edge closer towards the end of the Autumn Term.
This term the children have had lots of wider opportunities, with some still to come! Teachers have planned some great trips to enhance the learning and give all of our children rich experiences. Continue reading to discover what our children have, and will be, enjoying.
Looking ahead to the end of the term we will sadly be saying ‘Goodbye’ to Mrs Bexon, Mrs Carty and Mrs Tomes.
I am sure you will join me in wishing them the best of luck as they begin their new adventures.
We are looking forward to welcoming back Mrs Darling and Mrs Malooq who will both be returning after Christmas.
