Hi Parents/Carers

Just a note to let you know that you are invited into school next Tuesday 28th March (2:40pm for a 2:45 start and a 3:15 end) to see the children perform in a mini Ukulele concert. We will be performing outside under the shelter by our classroom.

We look forward to seeing you.

HI Year 6 and Parents/Carers

Our class Christmas party is on Tuesday 13th December, I have posted a food list on Seesaw and attached a copy below. Pease could you have a look and then comment what you will be able to provide.

I will keep track in class.

Thank you for your support.

Tuesday 4th October

Hi Year 6 and Parents/Carers,

Just a note to clarify some details about the sleepover. The £5 that is collected is for a £1 challenge that the children participate in on the evening. The money is then spent on breakfast for the Saturday and anything left over is put towards breakfast during SAT's week. I hope that makes sense.

Also, we use the mats in the hall for the children to sleep on - they will need to bring a sleeping bag/duvet and pillow. If you have a camping mat or something similar these would be great to use as we only have a limited amount of mats. Sadly, no airbeds can be used.

We will watch a film once we are back from the treasure hunt and have completed the challenge. Mr Worton-Geer spoke to the children yesterday and they would like to watch Harry Potter. This will need permission as they are rated PG or above; a Parentmail will be sent out. I heard a rumour about sweets (my favourite are strawbs, cola-bottles, all sour sweets!! Just kidding!!!!) of course they can bring snacks, sweets etc. but these are not provided for by us or from the £5.

If I think of anything else, I will add a note here and on the web-page. I am really looking forward to it and having some fun with the children and getting to know them outside of the classroom.

Have a lovely evening.

Mrs Collins P.S. I am joking about sweets. I have been to Costco already :)


Good evening,

Just a note to say that I have rearranged the sleepover for Friday 14th October - a Parentmail will be sent out with the details tomorrow.

Also, keep an eye out for the Parentmail with details about our trip to Harry Potter World.

Best wishes,

Mrs Collins
