    Welcome back - we hope you enjoyed the October break. We’re looking forward to a busy half term ahead with a range of activities planned including productions, carol concerts, discos and class trips. Thank you to everybody who came along to our All Saints’ Mass yesterday morning – it was lovely to see so many parents, carers, parishioners and family members in attendance.

     

    Class Masses

    Over the next few weeks, each class will walk to Church to participate in the 9.30am mass. If you are able to help accompany the children to and from Church, please let your child’s class teacher know. Each class will leave school, just after 9am, on the following dates:

    Reading

    Research shows that reading for pleasure makes a significant difference to children’s educational performance. As a school we actively encourage all of our pupils to read to their parents every night. We ask that you help your child to maintain their Reading Record by signing their book when you hear them read. Thank you for your support.
