Primary News

Half Term
We wish you all a very pleasant and restful half term and hope that you enjoy some quality time with your children. We look forward to welcoming the children back into school at 7am on Tuesday 25th February.

Primary Spring Fair
As you will see from the calendar our Primary Spring Fair will take place on Saturday 1st March. We consider this to be a curriculum day and all primary children are expected to attend for at least a part of the day to help out on their class stall or game. In school next week the children will be busy preparing their games and activities. During the day of the Spring Fair children will participate in authentic learning experiences relating to mathematics: taking money and making change, counting, estimating, measuring and so on. We hope that all parents will come along to support their children’s enterprise as all money raised goes towards the school’s Scholarship fund.
