Readathon

The readathon will take place during the week of 11th June.  There will be a ‘Book and Bakes’ sale on Tuesday during play-time, where children will be able to purchase a book and baked goods. The children will be participating in reading sessions over the week, and the house who reads the most pages collectively will be awarded the new House Points Trophy!  To round off the week, there will be a dress up day on Friday15th June.  Pupils may pay £1 to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. 

We would like to ask for donations of gently used books to be sent to school with the pupils during the week of 4th June.  If you are able to donate baked goods for the sale, please bring these to school on Monday afternoon at pick-up time, or Tuesday morning at drop-off. 

We look forward to a wonderful week!

The children should come to school in their sports day outfit.

The weather forecast is looking lovely for tomorrow. The Northern Meeting Park is a big open space with no shade. Please remember to bring hats and sun cream.

We would appreciate it if you could help us spread the word.
