Newsletter Term 6 2013
Dear Parents, Carers and Friends
I hope everyone has been able to enjoy the bank holiday at the end of Term 5 and the sunshine that came with it. What a difference warm days and clear blue skies make. Long may they last.
GARDEN CLUB APPEAL
The Gardening Club are appealing for any seeds you may have at home that you will not be sowing. Any donations can be left at the school office. They would also be appreciative of any old tools that you may no longer have a use for; these can also be left at the school office.
HOT AND SUNNY DAYS
If the sun continues to shine during this term, children are encouraged to bring sun hats to school to wear at playtimes. Children can also bring sun block to school on the condition that the containers they bring are clearly marked and that the children are able to apply it themselves. Children may also bring extra bottled water to school as long as it is clearly labelled.
