Information and Reminders

Now that the weather is becoming warmer, please could you ensure that all children bring a clearly labelled water bottle and hat to school. If your child requires sun cream please apply before school.

Our current topic ‘Our World’ will conclude on Monday 21st May. We are inviting parents into school on this day to help create bottle rockets as part of our exit point! Please check Class Dojo for more information.

Thank you to all parents who attended the Donuts with Dads event. The children were very pleased about eating donuts with their Dads!

The weather forecast for Saturday looks great for the Dads and Kids Campout, we look forward to seeing you there.

STEAM Day - The theme for the upcoming STEAM day (Thursday 18 May) will be recycling. At the moment we have still only received a small amount of materials. Please could you send in any recyclable materials that would be suitable for the event.

Please note that IB and IGCSE exams are taking place and will be taken in the Primary building. The main staircase in B Block will remain closed and all students and adults should use alternative staircases. Please can we ask parents not to wait in the area outside the Hive, outside Sports Hall B or along the Year 3 classrooms, as we need to ensure silence for our older students. Parents are always welcome to go to Aspretto, our coffee shop, whilst waiting for students. Thank you for your support.
