Friday 14th October

What a busy week we’ve had at Longnor!

There has been some fabulous learning across the school and all children have made excellent progress. I’ve seen some fabulous writing as I’ve been walking around school. I hope you are able to visit school on Wednesday to share the work that’s been produced.

The SOUL team led an assembly on self-image and the internet. They talked about selecting images carefully that they upload to the internet and how we only allow people we know to be ‘friends’ online. These are important messages that I hope you are able to continued talking about at home.

Next week is a very busy week with the open evening, Harvest Festival and Halloween disco. I look forward to seeing you at some point in the week.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mrs L Edgerton
