Thank you to all of you that came and supported our youngest children celebrating the Tour De Yorkshire. We held a craft event at the end of the day for children to make things to take to the race, to decorate their bikes with, to decorate school with, and to eat! We had a great time and hope you did too.


Reading Rockets Award

We changed your child’s reading book in the sunshine room each Friday and the children get stickers on their chart for every time they read in school and for every time they have read at home. To fill a chart they must complete 25 ‘reads’ and they receive a certificate for each filled chart.

Well done to Alfie Roper for being our first child to receive their Reading Rocket Award!
