ROALD DAHL DAY
On Friday, 13th September the children in Year One and Year Two will be celebrating Roald Dahl Day. They will be invited to bring in their favourite Roald Dahl book to share with their friends and they will be joining in with lots of fun activities linked to Roald Dahl's famous stories and characters throughout the day.
On the day we will be inviting the children to bring in donations for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity which provides nursing and healthcare support for seriously sick children.

INTERNATIONAL DOT DAY
On Monday, 16th September the children in Nursery and Reception will be joining hundreds of thousands all over the world to celebrate International Dot Day. This annual event was inspired by the book entitled The Dot by Peter H Reynolds. The book tells the story of a child who is reluctant to draw and who is encouraged to have a go by starting with just a dot on a page. The story goes on to show how the child's mark making develops from just one dot into some great masterpieces.
Here are some of the masterpieces created by the children on Dot Day last year. We will share some of our new artists work on here shortly!
We have several Parents' Workshops coming up in the autumn term. These include:-
Learning Through Play (Nursery and Reception)
Getting Ready For Reading (Nursery and Reception)
Number in Year 2 (Year 2)
Please look out for the dates on the What's On list - flyers will be distributed nearer the time with booking details.
