Today the children have been having fun playing in the snow.  If there is still snow tomorrow please ensure your child is suitably clothed to go out and play in it.  We are hoping to go on the field so bring in your labelled wellies, hat, gloves, scarf, change of socks and possibly waterproof/old trousers.  Should be fun!  Please see our showcase to view what we have been doing this lunchtime.

Thank you to everyone who managed to come to our KS2 sports day today and special thanks to the PTA for providing the refreshments.  The day was a hot one and tomorrow promises to be equally sunny so please remind your child to wear a sun hat and to slap on the sun protection cream.  Although saying that, it was interesting seeing children trying to run and hold onto their caps; we had to admire their perseverance!
