Friday Round Up 21/1/17

Book Week 6th to 9th February

Earlier this week you would have received a letter outlining the events of Book Week. Just to reiterate what you can do to support the school for this event:

 Make sure your child is reading every night especially during book week.

 Donate a book, or books, to our new school library. The Barn will be open before and after school on Wednesday 1st February for donations.

 Allow your child to dress up as a character from their Fab 50 list on Thursday 9th

. Many thanks for your help, as mentioned we will be opening our new library during this week which will be named in memory of our School Bursar, Gill Bromley, who passed away last year.
