They have ended the week with a visit to the hall where Mr Dyer has set up lots of challenging maths activities and puzzles. Some of them are really hard!

If you have any spare clothes suitable for infant children, please could we have them. We particularly need clothes for girls.
Years 3 and 4 need paint shirts. If you have any old shirts or T shirts they could use when painting, please drop them into the office. Large men’s T shirts are most suitable. Thank you.

Missing Coat

Jake in Year 6 only had his new coat for about a week before it disappeared. He is missing it terribly! Please could you check your child has the correct coat or if you can recall seeing a black and grey coat with a hood and velcro pockets please let us know at the office. Could I also take this opportunity to remind everyone to name clothing very clearly as this helps when things do go missing.
