This card will contain a class teacher comments section followed by your child’s targets for reading, writing and maths.  If a teacher needs to speak to a parent about anything, they will arrange a mutually convenient time to telephone.  Early Years children (Nursery & Reception) will also have a small written report with some observation photographs.

We will not be able to go into the hall for games but children will have an enjoyable Christmas Craft day with Christmas music and some party food. Parents are asked to donate £2 towards the cost of the food and some special Christmas craft materials.

18 Dec – Break up

Film night – (this night is a money raising activity in place of a Christmas disco) Children will have this event in their classrooms. Teachers will play a Christmas film and children will have food and drinks. Children pay £2.50 to attend.   Please see the individual dates for each class.

Christmas Cards – Due to the difficulties in passing cards around children and classes, we are asking parents not to send Christmas cards into school with children. We are aware that money may be tight for some parents at the moment but if parents would prefer to give a donation to school instead of buying cards, it would be much appreciated. We have not been able to do any of our usual money raising activities since September and this is a lot of money which we do not have for the children this year.
