Pupil Voice
Jemima and Alivia told us what they have been learning about in their class theme this term.
Jemima said, "We have started to learn about boats and soon we are going to make our own. I am so excited. We are learning to follow a design. Then we will race them."
Alivia said, "It's all about materials and we are going to make a boat. We are going to use a pinecone as a passenger on the boat. We are going to put a propeller on it because we are going to race them! My boat is going to be called Blue Highlights."
 
School Lockers
Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school. 
 
After school sports clubs
After school clubs will be running from Monday 25 February 2019.  If you would like to your child to attend, please contact the school office.

Tuesday - Take Action for Years 2 - 6
Wednesday -  Gymnastics for Years 2 - 6

Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late.
