Born In A Barn

Posted on Monday 13 December 2010 by Mrs Weekes

Who was born in the barn one cold and wintry evening?  If you come and see our Christmas performance on Tuesday 14 or Wednesday 15 December then you’ll find out.  It’s not too late to get your tickets!  Come and listen to the singing donkey, various sheep and cows, a wise owl and a very noisy cockerel.  Looking forward to seeing you.

There will be a short meeting at 9 o’clock on Tuesday morning for those parents who were unable to attend the evening meeting. The meeting will give you the chance to find out how we teach reading and writing in Reception and give you ideas for helping your child at home. We hope you will be able to attend.

Thank you to everyone who came to the curriculum meeting yesterday. If you could not make it  please let us know as we will be arranging a morning session very soon for those parents who wish to attend.
