Dear parents,

We would like to say a big welcome to all our new parents and children, and welcome back to all our existing parents and children. We hope that everyone had a relaxing half term break. We are now entering a very busy half term with lots going on, we hope that you and your children will be able to take part in as much as possible.


As we run the school in line with the Foundation Phase Curriculum we offer the children the opportunity to play outside in all weather. As the weather starts to change could you please ensure that your child comes into school with the appropriate clothing such as wellies, raincoats, hats and gloves. Please could you ensure that all of their belongings are labelled to avoid any confusion and worry. Thank you.

Week 1 – Bonfire night

Week 2 – Remembrance

Week 3 – starting Christmas activities

Week 4 – Christmas
