Merry Christmas!

A fantastic last week of the autumn term. 

Christmas parties all completed with very happy, excited children.

We are very proud to say that our behaviour records have shown an improvement in number of incidences this half term which is really positive as it's quite an excitable time of year.

Congratulations to Mrs Robinson's and Mr Almedia's classes for winning the whole class attendance award-they will select their whole class reward after the holidays.

Thank you to all the parents who took the time to complete the questionnaire, the feedback has been very useful and I will report on this in the new year with our actions. The questionnaire is now closed.

Below is an overview of the subject areas for next half term for your information. More details will be available on the class pages.
