It was lovely to see you all back last week……I’m sure you have all grown a few cms! All of you showed that you are happy and ready to return to work!
Thank you to those who have signed up for contributing to the Snack Rota.
I look forward to you starting swimming tomorrow. I will go with you for the first two weeks. Remember to bring your swimming kit and some easy to pop on and off shoes. We will leave right after School assembly, and will change quickly at school before we leave so that you can pop your uniform on over your bathing trunks/costume. The lesson will start at 10.05.
Please remember your different pairs of shoes….indoors, outdoors and wellies for the week ahead.
See you all in the morning.
My email available at all times is email@example.com
See you tomorrow.
