  • PE days are now as follows; ALL classes have Dance on a Monday, Turquoise has PE on WEDNESDAYS and Violet & Green have PE on FRIDAYS.
  • Please can all children bring a NAMED sun hat and water bottle to school as the weather becomes warmer.
  • Please can all children remove earrings before dance and PE.
  • Please could all water bottles, snack pots and jumpers/cardigans brought into school be NAMED, we are finding lots of items that have no names and children are unable to identify them.
  • Please can we remind parents/carers to select their child’s lunch prior to the start of the school day as this takes away from our learning time in the morning.
