Newsletter 30.11.12

The weather really is beginning to have a wintery feel to it and we are surprised to see children still coming into school without coats on. Please ensure that all children have a named coat with them each day and are wearing appropriate clothing for the weather.


Don’t forget that the school is closed on Monday 3rd December for an Occasional Day.


Thank you to everyone involved in the Year 6 Cake Sale. The total raised was £77.85



Plea for help

We have been unable to find a pianist for the Junior Carol Concert. It would involve playing for the rehearsal in the morning and at the concert in the evening. If you are able to help or know somebody who would be able to play at the Church please speak to Mrs Hadley.



Well done to the Learners of the Week, we are very proud of you all.
