Thank you to all the parents who attended the phonic workshops which were a great success! It was so lovely to see so many of you there, supporting your children in their learning. We have attached the phonics booklet which was provided on the day for future reference.

Dear Parents

We would like to invite you to parent’s afternoon. This is an opportunity for you to come into school for a brief meeting with your child’s teacher. The focus of this meeting will be to talk about how your child has settled in to their new class, their progress so far this year and to answer any questions that you may have.

The dates are as follows:

KS1 Tuesday 15th October

Nursery and Reception 16th October

KS2 Thursday 17th October

Please see your child’s teacher in the playground next week (w/c7th) to choose an appointment slot. We look forward to seeing you there. 

Kind regards
