Friday 28th April

Good evening,

We’ve had a very busy week in school! New clubs have been keeping us busy with new activities making their debut: podcast, nature and show club to name a few. Watch this space as new and exciting shows are being written and entertaining podcasts hope to make you laugh!

All children have been working incredibly hard, but a special mention to our swimming groups this week. Some children have been boosting their confidence with extra lessons and they have, for the first time, been jumping in and swimming in the deep end. We are very proud of them.

We have made some decisions as to next year’s PD days and, therefore, I attach the school overview for your reference: 2023-2024-term-and-holiday-dates.

For now, though, I hope you have a lovely bank holiday weekend. We’ll see you all on Tuesday.

All the best.

Mrs L. Edgerton
