Dear Parents/Carers,


We hope that you had a peaceful and pleasant break and enjoyed celebrating Easter, Holi Festival and Eid ul-Fitr.  Thank you for the beautiful hamper and gifts that we received from parents who were celebrating Eid – it was much appreciated.  The book that was part of this hamper was read out in assembly today by one of our Year 6 pupils.


We wish all who are celebrating Vaisakhi over this weekend an enjoyable celebration.  Here’s a link to a video about this festival made by Mrs Williams and one of our pupils
