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! Parents should arrive at their child’s classroom at 1:30pm. We look forward to seeing you.

Thank you for all the materials and resources sent in for the STEAM day. The children had a great time creating their own items using the items provided.

Next week, our Rainbow Review choir will be taking part in the Stage and Screen Performance. We hope to see parents there.
