    Reception trip to Thorndon Country Park

    23rd September 2016 Dear Parent/Carer   We have arranged for our Reception classes to visit Thorndon Country Park on Friday 4th November for a ‘Billy Goats Gruff Day’. During this amazing day, the children will be part of an outdoor theatre show telling the story their way, exploring the habitats of goats and trolls, making music and song, and even den building! The cost of the trip is £11 per pupil, this covers the cost of the activities and the coach there and back.   The children will be accompanied by their teachers and Learning Support Assistants, however we will also need a small number of parent helpers (no siblings) to support us. Every child is expected to attend the visit as the children’s work will be based around this experience and it is part of normal school day. The children will leave the school at 9.15am and will r...

    High 5 Netball Team

    16th September 2016   Dear Parents / Carers   Your child has shown an interest in participating in the training sessions for the school’s High 5 netball team. We will be holding training sessions after school every Wednesday from 3.15-4pm. Please note that taking part in these training sessions does not guarantee your child will always be in the netball team as there are limited places. The team that will take place in the games against other schools will be selected before the games. Children who are selected for the squad will be informed via a confirmation letter. If your child does not attend training sessions for three consecutive weeks, then unfortunately they will no longer have a place within the netball club.   If you wish your child to take part in the training sessions please make sure that your child brings their PE kit, trainers and a water bottle to school on Wednesdays.   If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.   Thank you for your continued support.   Yours sincerely     Mrs Taylor and Mrs Bosworth     %...
