Another week passed and what wonderful, icy weather we have had! In the same way the sun has lit up our playground, the children have lit up our classrooms with the fantastic learning they have been producing!
Please note, we will be inviting parents into the hall for our project outcome on Friday 10th February, from 09:30 – 10:15am.
For week commencing 30th January, Year 6 will be completing our termly assessment week. To enable us to provide the children with a variety of activities when not completing assessments, please can the children come to school dressed in PE kit for every day that week (30th January – 3rd February), along with the following Monday alone (Monday 6th February). Thank you!
