Bottle Caps


We will be collecting plastic bottle caps of any colour in school as part of keeping our environment tidy.

We are going to be thinking about plastic waste and how we could help with this.

We plan on using the bottle caps to create a large piece of collaborative art work.

Please hand these in to your class teacher.

We need to collect as many as possible!

Thank you

Half term is here!


We firstly want to thank you for all your support over this first half term. The children have had great fun with their learning both at home and at school!

We have put some lines to learn for the Christmas Play in some of the children’s bookbags. It would be great if they could start learning these over the holidays ready to rehearse when we get back. Some children do not have any lines, or only have a few words so we will teach them at school.

We will  be organising costumes for the play over the half term holiday and if there are any small pieces of clothing we need you to provide we will give the children a note next term, eg, tights, trousers etc to complete their outfits.

The date of our Christmas Play is Tuesday 10th December 2019. We will be doing 2 performances; one at 2pm and one at 5.30pm. You will receive more information on this later in the term when we allocate tickets to be within fire regulations.
