We have had a great week in school! The autumnal weather was lovely for our first Walk 2 School, seeing 16 children take part and enjoy breakfast together on arrival at school. Our next Walk 2 School will be Tuesday 4th October.
Thank you for the prompt return of Friday bags this week. We will only be sending Friday bags home when there is important information which needs acting upon (e.g. forms to be filled in).
Harvest Activity Morning – next Wednesday we will celebrate Harvest. Children will be working together throughout school in their house teams including some outside activities. Please send children to school with their warm coats and outdoor shoes. Thank you.
Harvest Appeal – this year, as we celebrate Harvest, we are asking any families who are able, to donate to our collection for a local foodbank. Items can be brought into school and placed in the box outside the office.
