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 colder weather, can all children bring a coat in everyday. Can all children be encouraged at home to practise doing up their own zips. We do like to be outside as much as possible whatever the weather. Could you also bring in a named pair of wellies that can be left at school.
