World Book Day on Friday 6th March:
During the week beginning Monday 2nd March the children will be participating in lots of activities to celebrate books and reading. Please note that we are recognising World Book Day on Friday 6th March this year. Children and staff can dress in their favourite book character, ideas such as, wear pyjamas to reflect a favourite character or draw a character of choice onto a cheap or old t-shirt, make a hat or a mask out of paper or even face paint. Please don’t feel that you must buy anything new and there is no donation on this day. If you are worried about providing something for your child to wear please speak to a member of staff.
More ideas can be found here -

All the children enjoyed their water safety talk this week with Michelle from Albany Swimming Pool and had lots of questions answered about the swimming sessions.
Year one begin swimming the first Wednesday back after the half term break - 26.2.20. Please bring all swimming kits in by the 24th February at the latest. Below is a photo of the items needed and please make sure children wear tracksuit bottoms on swim day so it's easy for pupils to change and no jewellery for safety reasons. Thank you.

The Reception Team
The Nursery children had a lovely time visiting Sainsbury's throughout the week in preparation for their Teddy Bear's Picnic. They joined in making jam sandwiches and preparing the food to share together for the Picnic.
We have been sharing lots of books about teddies and bears to support the children's learning and vocabulary. A favourite has been 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' - see if your child can recall it? There is a great version of it on YouTube.
Remember to login to Tapestry to see what your child has been up to in their learning. If you are having problems logging in please speak to a member of staff
