Weekly reminders for week beginning 11th December 2023

Well, it is almost impossible to believe that we are in the final full week of this term. What a term is has been! I am sure you will agree that it has been a successful time at Clockhouse for so many different reasons.  I cannot thank each and everyone of you enough for the part you have played in this and for your on-going support and kindness.
Last week in school we continued to try to give the children a fantastic Christmas experience. We hope you are enjoying the Winston story so far. If you attended concerts last week, we hope you enjoyed them as much as we did and thank you being so good at adhering to the rules - it really is appreciated.
