Friday 5th July

Good evening,

Showing visitors around school this week has been an absolute delight! Each classroom has been filled with a buzz of activity: singing, dancing and drama fill the school with excitement!

Little Owls did a fantastic job this week at organising and running a garden tea party for their families. I was really impressed with those that were serving their guests and the posters around school were incredible. Well done Little Owls!

We had our move up morning on Tuesday. The atmosphere around school was wonderful. Children were busy creating art for walls and thinking about the roles that they would like to have next year. All were really focused and seemed to enjoy the morning.

School is really busy as we head towards the end of the term: please take a minute to check dates and activities that are planned. I thank you for all the support you have given preparing for plays, especially finding costumes and props. We are all looking forward to making you smile when we perform over the next two weeks.

For now, have a lovely weekend. We’re all ready to have year two and four camp in school tonight!
