If you have not yet signed into Class Dojo please ask your class teacher for your login details. If you have a new phone or device and need the password again to access the Dojo please also ask, it really is such a helpful and valuable communication tool for us and you as well as a way of celebrating your children's achievements in school.
Jeans for Genes day
As you will already know, Friday is Jeans for Genes day, for a small contribution to this worthwhile charity the children can come to school wearing jeans on Friday. If they do not have jeans, jogging bottoms or such are fine. Please ensure though that children are suitably dressed for school, including foot wear, school rules regarding jewellery still apply.
Nursery and Reception
It has been lovely to welcome all the new children to Reception this week, they certainly seem to have settled into school life quickly! Some of our Nursery children also started and it was equally as wonderful to welcome them, they have also settled well and we look forward to welcoming the rest of the children this week.
