Welcome back Year 2, we hope you had a lovely Christmas and thank you for all your lovely cards and gifts - it is much appreciated.   


Timetable changes 

Year 2 will now have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon with Mr Keating and Mrs Lawrence but we ask they continue to have their PE kits in school all week. 


Music will now be the last session on a Thursday so Miss Masterson will see them out at the end of the day on a Thursday and Mrs Lawrence on a Wednesday after PE. 


Thank you,
