Planning week starting 11th November

The next topic we have planned will be Self-Care and as part of this, the children will get the opportunity to design their own t-shirt which they will then be able to take home as a lovely keepsake.

To help us fund this activity, we are asking each parent to send in just £1 to cover the cost of the t-shirt. Please can you give this in cash to a member of staff before Friday 8th November.

Thank you in advance and we hope that you will love this keepsake.
