Active Kids vouchers wanted!

Thank you so much  to everyone who has brought in Active Kids vouchers from Sainsburys  this year.  We will be able to swap them for some great sports equipment for use by all age groups.

The deadline is looming for the vouchers and we will be counting ours up and submitting them soon, so please bring any you still have into school by this Friday. The collection box is on the table just outside our Reception, clearly identifiable with the Active Kids branding. Thanks again!

There has been plenty of hard work and lots of fun in rehearsals all term for our fabulous Prep drama production, The Keymaster – it promises to be a real treat and all the children have at  least one part to play.

The sun has got his hat on…

We hope the weather will stay summery this week, particularly for our Sports Day on Wednesday, but of course it is important that the children are well protected with sunscreen and their named sun hats. Parents –  please check that they have them for school every day so that they can all enjoy break time and sports without risk of burning. We will make sure everyone has plenty to drink!

Rollover Day next Friday

For ‘rollover day’ on Friday 23rd June, all our pupils – from Nursery up – will spend time in their new class for next year.  This is an opportunity to experience a ‘taster’ of their class for 2018 and meet their new form tutor as well as some of the new pupils who will be joining us in September.
