    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.  


    Pupil Council 

    Miss Rackham and the Pupil Council are trying their very best to make the playground even more fun for the children. If you have any good quality plastic storage boxes with lids that you no longer need then the Pupil Council would really appreciate them for our new shed. We have fun outdoor games equipment for the children to play with but would like to keep it protected and safe from sand, wind, rain and creepy crawlies. All sizes welcome. In addition if you have any large half dome tents that erect and disassemble easily that you no longer need then we would love them so we can read in shade on our new artificial grass area.
