What a wonderful start!



All the children are settled in their classes and have had an excellent start to their first year in School. Thank you for your support with this.

Can we remind parents that all children need a spare set of clothes in school. If we send any of schools clothing home please ensure you

return them.

We would like to thank all parents for there donations to the foundation fund. Without this fund we wouldn't be able to offer the wide range of snacks we do, make fresh play dough weekly, and provide hot chocolate after forest schools and much more! Fund can be paid weekly, half termly or termly.


Our topics this half term are Nursery rhymes and

Traditional tales. Please sing rhymes with your children and tell stories at home.


Thank you to all those children who completed their holiday scrapbook. They were excellent and we loved sharing them it looked like you all had a wonderful summer.


Next week on Thursday 28th we will be holding an open morning for you to see all the wonderful things your children do in school. We will also run a short workshop to explain how we teach phonics. It will start at 9am, please let your class teacher know if you can attend.


Children will need their book bags and books every day. Please try and read with your child at least three times a week.
