    Prep Projects 

    The Prep Projects for this half term have now been sent home via email.  The deadline for completion is Thursday 21st March and a Celebration Afternoon for parents will take place on the afternoon of Tuesday 26th March (further details to follow). Prep Projects actively support the learning that is taking place in school as well as supporting independence and shared learning experiences for families. We encourage parents to share the project ideas with children and allow the children to choose the activity that sparks their interest.  The children should work over a sustained period of time so that the quality of work is of a high standard.  All Prep Projects will be shared and celebrated in the classroom thus building confidence and instilling a sense of pride in our young learners.
