Our topic for this half term is Dragons Tales. This enables the children to explore the historical, traditional and fantasy world of castles including the lives of people who lived and worked in them durinng the Middle Ages. The children will be introduced to and experience a range of cultural stories, activities and events that celebrate aspets of welsh heritage and traditions. If you have anything of interest that we could use this half term, please send it in thanks.
Muddy Monday and PE will continue to be on a Monday. We would like all children to wear joggers and bring Velcro trainers, and NO jewellery please! If your child does wear studs it would be easier if they could be removed or covered before they come to school.
Snack for this half-term is £7.50 please can you pay it as soon as possible in a clearly labelled envelope - thanks!
