Upcoming events.

EYFS Obstacle course is on Monday 1st July - parents are invited to attend this with their children. 

Parents meeting for children starting Upper Foundation in September will take place on Thursday 11th July at 9:00am. 

The children will take part in a Fun Day event on Tuesday 16th July where we will have a magician and other various exciting activities!  Parents are not required at this event. 

 

 

To further encourage our children to develop a love of reading we have adapted our family sharing time. We welcome parents to stay for the first 15 minutes of each session and will now put out a selection of reading books on a Tuesday and Thursday that we would like our parents to share with their children.  On Monday, Wednesday and Friday we will have our name writing cards out as usual. 

We have also started a library system in Nursery where we will let your child choose a book to bring home for the week to enjoy with you. Books will be swapped on a Thursday so we ask that on a Thursday your child puts their library book in the box in the cloakroom ready to be swapped.
