Welcome back after what I hope has been a good summer holiday for everyone. Thank you for your continuing support with school uniform. The children all looked very smart indeed. The children have been sharing their holiday travels and experiences with us, they certainly have enjoyed themselves. During the break substantial work has been carried out both inside and outside the school. You will have noticed the new fencing in KS1 playground. This replaces the previously tired fencing. Inside a new wiring installation for the ever increasing technology demands has been completed. Year 2 classrooms now join both year 1 and the reception classes in the installation of interactive TV’s these will greatly enhance the children’s IT experiences and build on their knowledge from year 1. It has been a very busy first week back with our Reception class children settling into the school routine amazingly.
