This will be the final weekly newsletter to parents due to feedback that Dojo is increasingly becoming our most useful tool for communicating information. All diary dates and important notices will still be communicated via the website, but if you do not already have access to your child’s Dojo then please see your child’s class teacher as we will be posting lots of information there.
Friday 8th March
Friday 8th March we will be celebrating World Book Day! We are excited to be having a visit from Dan Anthony! As it is also the week we celebrate St David’s Day, we have sought out Dan Anthony as a Welsh author to share his tips and tricks of writing with us! Children may dress in a Welsh themed costume, or a character from their favourite book!
