Parents coming into school

We hope you have all enjoyed sharing just a liitle bit of the Oak Class day. All the children have really enjoyed showing you around and telling

you about all the things they like to do.


Show and Tell will be on Thursdays, it is really nice to see the children sharing their own work and experiences with the rest of the class. If

your child forgets to bring anything, please do not worry as we like to encourage them to share with the other children exciting news they

may have.  Please can Show andTell be just one thing, and not too big ( preferably to fit in bookbags)


In anticipation of warmer weather, can children bring a sunhat in everyday and apply long lasting suncream before school. Please can

they also bring a light raincoat to leave at school as we do like to be out in all weather
