Head of School update

Snow snow snow……

The children have all been doing some amazing learning this week, please check out the weekly class updates for more information, however, breaktimes have been dominated by snow and ice this week!  In the class updates there are some lovely pictures of the children enjoying making snowmen albeit very small/mini ones! Whilst the ice that has inevitably followed should be short lived, please take extra care when navigating the paths around the school as they remain slippery.  

Please ensure children are sent in with a warm winter coat every day

Ideally warm and waterproof.  This time of the year it is very very cold and often wet.  Please help us to keep your child warm and well by making sure they bring in a warm coat to wear outside as we do go out at every opportunity.
