Barn Owls

 We had a fantastic Autumn term - concluding  with the Nativity and KS2 coffee morning.

The children were fantastic and have continued to show their amazing attitude to learning.


Just a few little reminders:

P.E. is on a Wednesday afternoon - all pupils with shoulder length hair need this tied back and earrings need to be removed or covered with a plaster. Please bring supplies from home.

Homework: Set on a Friday and due in the following Thursday.

Spellings: Set on Tuesdays, with a test the following Tuesday.

Reading records - please make sure they are in school and write any comments if you have listened to your child read. 

If you have any problems, please do not hesitate to make an appointment with Mrs Heggie to see me.

Thank you for your support, Mr Clee.
