Welcome Wednesdays occur every half term and it is an opportunity for parents to come into class to spend some time with their child looking at what they have been learning.  The next 'Welcome Wednesday' will be on Wednesday 20th March. We would love for you to come and join us to see what happens in reception.


Charlie Bear is our class mascot and comes home with children on a Friday, he is currently working his way down the register! When you have Charlie please encourage your child to spend lots of time doing fun things with him. If you could write about Charlie's stay in his diary that would be great because then we can share your child and Charlie's adventures with the rest of the class. Charlie needs to be in school on Monday morning at 8.55am prompt!


If at any point you have any questions you are always welcome to chat to myself, Mrs Graham or Miss Leeming.
