PTA Fun Night

The PTA Fun night is to be held on Tuesday 26 June. As usual it promises to be a super night with lots of events, stalls, activities and fun for all of the family. Gates open at 7.00pm.

Any parent who is able to help should contact the school office.

 

Homework

We have already made some changes to our written homework this term. We would appreciate your thoughts regarding these changes. Written Homework will finish for this year on Thursday 14 June. Spellings, Spelling Activities and Reading will continue until Thursday 21 June.

 

Late Class Applications

Applications for a place in Late Class must be returned to the school office by Friday 15 June to enable us to plan staff for next year. As this is always oversubscribed late applications will not be considered until all on time applications have been placed.

 

End of Term Arrangements

As usual we will be running a staggered finish at the end of term to ease traffic congestion. Year 1 – 3 children will finish at 12.30pm while Year 4 – 7 children will finish at 1pm. If any older siblings etc. wish to be collected at 12.30pm please inform the class teacher.
