June (1) 2013 Newsletter

Posted on 27th June 2013


Mrs O’Dea has begun her maternity leave…baby O’Dea is due to arrive in early July! We will keep you updated and pass on any gifts/well-wishes you may want to give. Y2 are fortunate to continue to have Miss Allen as their class teacher as she has worked with the children all year and can ensure their continued progress. (Indeed Miss Allen taught the children in Y1 too, so is well placed).

Our world music week was tremendous! We had a week of activities ranging from African drumming, samba and gospel singing to the beautiful Indonesian Gamelan orchestra. Do look on the website for pictures!

Thank you, to all who have offered to come and help us in our bid to produce of hundreds of 3D flowers and birds. These will be used to transform the playground!
Thanks also to Sean Skidmore and APN Display Ltd for providing bunting for our self-portraits.
