Year 2 Appeal

Year 2 are making an igloo out of 4 litre plastic milk containers. They need a whopping 700! Please help if you can by sending them (washed thoroughly to avoid horrible odours!) to the Year 2 classroom.

Healthy Snack

The children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are given a healthy snack each day. Bananas, apples, oranges, pears, carrots, tomatoes, raisins and other seasonal fruit and vegetable are offered over the year. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that the children in KS2 are welcome to bring a healthy snack to eat at break time. Some children find the time between breakfast and lunch a little too long and benefit form a mid-morning snack. Please do not send sweets or crisps!
