Christmas Thank you
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to making the last week in school before Christmas a festive and happy one for the children. This week we have all enjoyed our parties and a delicious Christmas lunch yesterday. A special thank you to Paula our cook for the wonderful food.
Party Food – thank you for your support with our party food and Santa visit this week. We had lots of fun and the children received exciting gifts from Santa. Please collect your cake boxes from the classes.
Thank you to the Green Frog Garden Shop who donated our school Christmas Tree again this year
Cloakroom tidy for the holidays
We have sent home all our cloakroom items for cleaning and sorting over the holidays. The indoor shoes which the children need to wear to keep our carpeted classrooms clean, have also been sent home. This makes it possible for the cloakroom areas to be thoroughly cleaned. If your child’s indoor shoes still fit, you will simply need to return them in January.
Please bring your PE kit on the first day back to school and keep it in school for the week. Classes 3 and 4 will have outdoor PE in January so please bring warm tracksuit trousers in your PE kit.
