News from the coach - they are getting nearer! They should be here in about 10 - 15 minutes!
Please can I ask that you wait in the Key Stage 1 playground and your child will come into the playground to find you, then go and collect their luggage, any medication and let their group leader or myself know that you are leaving.
Thank you for your help and all you patience!

Kenya and Canada
Kenya and Canada start this years round of Celebration Assemblies on Monday, we look forward to seeing many of you there to celebrate all the learning that they have done so far this year. Both assemblies promise to be a wonderful occasion if the efforts that the children have put into practising are anything to go by.
The Reception children (and staff) are very excited to welcome a dinosaur workshop to school on Thursday to support their learning about dinosaurs.
We all hope that Year 5 have a fabulous time at Condover Hall. Please remember to meet your group leader in the canteen on Monday morning.
