Pupil Voice
This week in pupil voice the children discussed their thoughts about the new playground gym equipment.  This is what they said….
Hayden said, “Each class could have a specific day while others play football etc.”
Vinnie said, “We get exercise and have lots of fun.”
Emily said, “We were bored outside. We spoke to Mrs Cox, she is in charge, and she listened to us.”
Kai said, “We can have more fun now!”
 
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.
