Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 1st November 2019

1 November 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

It’s hard to believe we are in November already! I hope you enjoyed the half term break. We’re in for a busy few weeks ahead so do please remember to check the school website for important diary dates.

Our curriculum is continuously under review as we discover what topics and subject content our children are particularly interested in. A subject area that has had significant investment this year is music. Our specialist teacher, Mrs Warwick, has been working this term with children from Early Years to Year 4. In Year 3 and Year 4 the children have been learning to play the ukulele. You can enjoy a little snippet of a Rowan class rehearsal below.

 

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler

Headteacher
