Our first parent coffee afternoon of the new school year
will be on Wednesday 10th October 2018
from 1:50pm to 2:50pm in the small hall.
A chance to chill and chat with a cuppa and a biscuit.
I look forward to seeing you there - Mrs D Spocchia.
A very big 'Thank You' to all the parents that came along to our Makaton session on the 11th July.
Mrs Baughan, Mrs Stickings and Mrs Spratling started the session teaching parents a few helpful words that they may like to try at home.
Hopefully they enjoyed the signing of the song 'This Is Me' (from The Greatest Showman film) by our reception and year 6 children.
I am giving you a new link for car seat safety.
I am arranging for them to come into one of our coffee mornings.
Hope you find this useful.
