London meeting:

There will be a meeting in the school hall on Tuesday 3rd May at 3pm for all families who have children going to London in May. We will be sharing details about the itinerary and answer any questions you may have. The meeting will last approximately half an hour. Children can attend this meeting, but there will be another meeting just for pupils within the school day.

You may have seen articles online and in newspapers regarding Huggy Wuggy and Poppy Playtime. We thought we would share these articles as well:

Playtime contributions:

If you had a clear out over the Easter holidays, we are on the lookout for items we can add to our playground class kits. In particular we are interested in figures such as Barbie, Action Man, animals etc. We are also looking for cycle helmets.

If you would like your child to attend this event, but have not bought a ticket before, you will have the opportunity to purchase one when the £3.00 ticket price is added to ParentPay.
