Money
Please remember to send all monies into school on Friday of each week.

Real Scientists
We are looking for a selection of large white shirts to use as scientist coats for investigations in our classrooms.  If you have any plain white shirts which you no longer use can you please send into class teachers. Thanks.

Pantomime
We will be attending the Millennium Forum on Monday 19th December to see the pantomime, Cinderella. Can the last few remaining permission slips be returned to school on or before Friday 25th November so we can confirm numbers with the theatre?  As a school, we are pleased to be able to subsidise the cost of this trip to reduce the cost to £10.  We are looking forward to a great trip and entering the Christmas Spirit.  Children will need a packed lunch and we hope to return to school by 5pm.  More details will follow.
