Dear children, parents and carers,

Welcome back to school! We hope you had a lovely half-term break.

This is the last half term but there is still lots of learning to be done! 

Remember PE kits on PE days, water bottles in school and appropriate clothing for the weather.  Homework is usually set on Fridays and due in the following Thursday/Friday.

Please remember to read for 20 minutes (minimum) each night as well as, TTR and Spelling Shed.  You can also quiz your books at home.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to see me at the end of the school day.
