Weekly Update 19/5/17

The children enjoyed meeting the author Simon Murray and especially loved trying to draw the Icky Doo Dah! Simon began his career as a teacher and embraced our learning habits of imagination and creativity and putting excellent effort into the task at hand.

Please make sure your child has their swimming kit in school at all times and that the bag is also labelled on the outside- there is a proposed swimming plan on Tapestry and we will keep that up to date should any changes occur.  Having googled the best way to label a swimming hat, the best I have come up with is permanent marker and reapply as it fades away- if anyone has a tried and tested solution, please let us know!
