Welcome back!  I hope this finds you all well after the

half term break. 

All the children have settled well into their new classes. The reception children have had a wonderful start to school and are all looking forward to their Forest School day at a local farm. The children in Year 1 and 2 all enjoyed their school trip to Tyntesfield and the children in Year 3 and 4 visited Batts Combe Quarry. They were all buzzing with excitement on their return and keen to tell me all about what they had learnt.  Their behaviour on all of the trips was OUTSTANDING! A huge thank you to everyone that helped to make these trips possible, especially our volunteers. 

     With Christmas just around the corner we have many events planned.  We are looking forward to our Christmas Fair, the Foundation Stage Nativity, a Carol Service in Church and a theatre visit to name just a few events!  Please see the newsletter for more information. 

Our Twitter feed and School Updates App will also keep you informed of our events and activities.

Thank you for your continued support

Kind regards
