  • Years 3-6 - a bottle of something to drink
  • Rainbow – Year 2 – A soft toy

Parent Consultations

Don’t forget to sign up online for the parent consultations that will be taking place on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th December after school. A letter containing all the information about these was sent out last week. During these meetings, our teachers will talk about how your child is getting on at school and will share a short report with you. This is a really valuable opportunity to find out more about your child’s learning so we do encourage you to book an appointment.


This week in worship we have been thinking about modern day Christians and how their faith affects their everyday lives. Worship has been led by Revd Tim, Mrs Duffy, Mrs Twiddle and Mr Way.

Revd Tim has also visited Year 4 and Year 1 this week to be part of the children’s learning in RE.


A gentle reminder to please not allow your child to bring in any toys to school as when they are lost or broken this causes a lot of upset. Thank you for your support with this.


School Clubs

A reminder that there are no clubs for the rest of this term. Our paid for After School Club run by Miss Collier and the team, as well as Breakfast Club, will continue to run up until the end of term.
