Thursday 27th April 2017

This week we have been celebrating our Maths Week in school. The aim of this week is to promote a love of maths through hands on investigations, puzzles and problem solving. Tomorrow, we will be holding our Parents’ Maths afternoon and would like to invite all parents/carers to visit their children’s classes from 2.30pm to take part in some planned activities. At 3.15pm our PTA will be serving refreshments in the hall (please bring some change for a small donation) and there will be the opportunity to view some of the resources used in each class. Hope to see you there!

Thank you for all the donations of unwanted clothing received this week. Recycle2School have picked up all the bags and we’ll find out how much money was raised in the next few weeks. We’ll keep you posted!

Bank Holiday

School will be closed next Monday 1st May due to the early May Bank Holiday. We hope you enjoy the extended weekend!
