21st October



Today is the last day of this half-term, tomorrow is a teacher day.  We have had a busy half-term and we continue to appreciate parents support with testing if children have symptoms of any sort.

We hope everyone has a lovely half-term and that we can all come back school on 1st November virus free ready for the run up to Christmas, which is always lovely in school.

Young Voices – Mrs Trotman reminded the juniors this morning that they can practise at home ready for the concert, the link was included in last weeks newsletter.
