Welcome Back everyone!

There’s certainly been no time to waste in the first week back. Year 2 and 6 have been busily preparing for their SATS, the new website construction is being finalised and the children have settled back in as though they’ve never been away.

It was lovely to read such well punctuated sentences from Year 1 this week. The presentation is improving and children are really thinking about their vocabulary choices!

Year 2 and 3 started their new reading groups this week and we have all been hugely impressed with the effort they are putting in.

Thank you for your patience whilst we have tried to organise around the industrial action due to take place next week. we will communicate regarding the 2nd May as soon as we can.

Have a lovely weekend!
