- Video Messages from staff to children and their parents

 

- Information on Growth Mindset and how to develop a growth mindset in your child.

Come to see us and play in your new classroom With Miss Pearce and Mrs Davis!

Wednesday 22nd July 2020

(Parents will socially distance drop off at the front door of the school and the same for collection)

Starter packs will be given out at this event. If you are unable to attend we will post the starter pack out to you.

September Stay and Play

 

I am pleased to be able to confirm that we will be holding a second Stay and Play for our little wrens.

This will give our Reception a chance to explore the classroom and outdoor space before the other year groups return. During the last stay and play we largely were out on our school field as the classroom was not in the layout which we would have when the Little Wrens start. 


Wednesday 2nd September
1.30 till 3 pm

This will give the opportunity to feel a little more confident when starting school the following morning!

School uniform is not necessary However I would understand if it was worn to help with routine.

As before Mrs Davis and Myself will greet you and your child by the front door.

We are so pleased that we were able to alter the Inset to allow for this opportunity and we look forward to seeing you all!
