Notices and Letters

Our School becomes a Museum!

On Thursday 9th February, we will be holding a Museum Open Afternoon, celebrating the children's topic work this term which has focused on historical enquiry skills. Parents are invited to take part in an historical scavenger hunt around the school with their children, visiting the displays created by each class.

Families are welcome from 2:00pm until 2:50pm. Please collect your child from their classroom and take them to the hall which is where the hunt will start. Parents are then able to take their child early if they should wish after they have signed them out with their class teacher. Those who complete the hunt will be in with a chance to win a prize!

We would like to equip our Talking Space with some soft furnishings, would you have any of the following items that you could donate?

If you can help, please contact the School Office
