Garden "Art" Club NEED your help. We require hundreds of plastic bottle tops from milk cartons, squash & pop bottles (washed please) to make some outdoor art.
We would be grateful if you could start collecting them now & send them into school on a weekly basis.
The class teacher will take them from the children and pass them on to Mrs Jones/Mrs Platt.
We would also like to construct our own compost heaps & potato planters so if you have any family/friend connections that are able to donate pallets & used tyres please encourage them to speak with Mrs Yates or Mrs Wills in the school office.
Thank you in advance for your help!

Our library is really well looked after, thanks to the efforts of Mrs Harris and Mrs Richardson. We would like to see parents use this lovely area after school. Come in, choose a book and share with your child. Of course, children need to be accompanied by a parent.

We Are Saving Paper
We are going to make more use of our technology and cut down on the paper we send out of school. Sometimes letters stay in children's bags and key messages can be lost. Please check your text messages and emails regularly and make sure that any change of detail is notified to the school. We will trial this until the end of the Summer Term. Parents who require a printed letter can request this from the school office. Thank you.
May Procession - This Friday
We ask that children can bring in flowers as is usual. However this time, any bedding plants would also be welcomed which we will use to adorn the statue of Mary within the school grounds. Thank you.
Take a look at what's on offer!
Our Y1 children know the rules! Lots of activity in school teaching safety rules.
One piece of advice to parents - please regulate the amount of time your child may spend on a computer at night and certainly discourage this before bed time!
