Dear Parents/Carers,


It’s been a good week back at school and though the weather has been cold, it’s been sunny and therefore quite pleasant.  I hope that it lasts over the weekend – it feels like a time for kicking through piles of Autumn leaves.  If you are planning a Bonfire Night celebration, I wish you a fun exciting and safe celebration.



We wish Happy Diwali to all who are celebrating this lovely colourful festival over the weekend.  Mrs Williams has recorded a Mister Men and Little Miss Diwali story video that we hope you enjoy.  You can find it here:

On Friday (12th November) Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be enjoying Indian dancing and painting Diya lamps.


Pupil Photos

Next Wednesday, 10th November, is individual photo day for pupils.  Regrettably, as last year and due to Covid restrictions, we can’t accommodate photos of siblings.


Remembrance 2021

Thursday 11th November is Remembrance Day.  Year 6 will be selling poppies on the school gate in the mornings next week.  A Year 6 Remembrance video will be available for Thursday, and you can watch last year’s Year 6 Remembrance film via this link:  The password for this video is Remember2021.



The PTA’s AGM will be held on Monday 29th November via Zoom.  Joining details will be made available nearer the time.
