Good morning,

I cannot believe we are about to begin the final week of Term 2! You have achieved a lot this term and hope that you are looking forward to all of the exciting things which are coming up in Term 3.

Please see below for homework information and news:

Homework: There is no homework this week. Please return any outstanding reading books tomorrow.

Read and Munch: We will be finishing off this term with a festive themed read and munch session on Friday. If you would like to bring a particularly festive book in to share with your buddy, I can store them in class until Friday. Please remember to bring a healthy snack. We will also have time to play with your buddies.

Vegan  Cookbook: Thank you so much for your support with this project. We had a fantastic time creating the book and it looks super. Orders are being processed and we will be in touch when they arrive.

We will be watching the nativity dress rehearsal of your buddies tomorrow afternoon.

On Thursday, we will have our Christmas movie morning and snacks will be provided.

P.E. is on Thursday this week.

On Friday, you will be taking your work home from this term. Please bring a bag in which you can take this work home in. 

You may also bring a game in on Friday as we may have a short time to play. Please don’t bring any electronic devices such as ipads.

Christmas Jumper Day

A wee reminder that tomorrow (Friday) is Christmas Jumper Day 🎄. The children may come to school in their Christmas jumper/top. Please note this is a non-uniform event.  A donation of £1.00 is suggested. All monies raised will go to the Save the Children organisation. If the children are not taking part, they should come to school in school uniform as normal👍🏼.
