Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 24th May 2019

24 May 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

It’s hard to believe there is only one half term of the school year remaining. June and July will be a busy couple of months in school. We have our Year 6 residential to Amsterdam, Elmer’s Great North Parade, our Graffiti Project and much more to look forward to.

I would like to thank you all for your support this half term, particularly with our fundraising project for the school playground. The children are thoroughly enjoying exploring the new areas but we are conscious we can do even more. Next term will see the introduction of new equipment and resources for children to access during break and lunch times. Our vision is to provide purposeful and fun playtimes for all children. You can find out more about how we plan to transform our playtimes by visiting


Have a wonderful half term holiday.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
