Our Virtual Christmas Nativity entitled, ‘Everyone loves a baby’ now available!

The boys and girls in Foundation Stage (Year 1 and Year 2 mainstream) worked very hard to produce our virtual Christmas Nativity entitled, ‘Everyone loves a baby’. If we had been able to invite you into school to see this wonderful performance, we would have sold tickets and raised some money for school funds. As you are aware, we are unable to do that this year, so instead we are making our production available to you digitally via the link below. This will then allow you to have your own copy. This performance was professionally recorded, at a cost to the school, so we would appreciate your support and hope it brings you a little joy this Christmas!

Parent information - Google Classroom Update

Thank you to all the parents who have signed their child in to Google Classroom.

Google Classroom is the ONLY way in which your child will receive important class updates and their homework.  It is also the way you will communicate with your child’s class teacher.

Therefore, if you have not joined your child’s online classroom, please do so no later than Monday 21st September as homework is beginning on this date.  Please remember to log in to Google Classroom via My-School and using your child’s Google Classroom account details that you have been given.

For everyone’s safety, please do not log in to Google Classroom using your own Google account.  This way we can keep all the children safe on-line and know who is using the classroom. 

We look forward to sharing updates and homework online throughout the ‘new’ normal.   

 

We really appreciate your support.

Thank you in advance!
