Welcome back to term three, we hope you enjoyed the festivities. We would like to say a big thank you to all the families who attended the Christmas party last term.
We were sad to say goodbye to some of our children who have now blossomed into sunflower room, but we are pleased to welcome the new families joining us from next week.
We will continue to develop the cooking skills of the children as they have really enjoyed this. We will also be exploring the school grounds and out door area so please remember to provide warm clothes for your children.
If you have any messages or worries/concerns please remember to talk to our friendly staff who will be happy to help you.
We would like to thank parents/carers for all your support whilst we are making adjustments to times such as hand overs.
Please see a member of the team if you are having trouble accessing your child’s learning journal, we really value your input and would love to see more of what your child is doing at home with you and their family/friends.
