Beside the seaside

This term we will be learning about the seaside and how holidays have changed over the years. We will look at changes in transportation and the impact this has had on the places we can visit. We will be focusing on Victorian seaside holidays in history and we will be celebrating our learning at our SPACE day with donkey rides and a Punch and Judy show!

P.E is on Thursday.

Monday is our Transition Day so the classes will spend most of the day with their new teacher in their new classroom.  They should still come to their usual classroom from 8.30 onwards and we will swap after a worship. Pick up as usual.

Any outstanding reading books to be returned by Monday 18th July please. No reading books will be reissued until September so please continue to read books from home, or your local library.

On Wednesday there will be a family picnic and leaver’s celebration at 3.30 pm until 5.00 pm.  Please bring a picnic along and celebrate the end of another successful school year.  The PTA will also be selling refreshments.
