Infants End of Term

Dear Parent

The end of our school year has arrived in a very different way to previous years. Thank you for your support and co-operation as becoming partners in your child’s education was taken to a whole new level over the last few months but we did it and you should all be very proud of what you have achieved with your child.

I have now sent a number of fun activities by email which could be used next week or indeed as time fillers throughout the summer. As always encourage your child to read and be read to frequently. In this regard I highly recommend that you take on our whole school Summer Reading Initiative which has been explained in my email and I’ve also attached the necessary resources here too.

I hope to see you all on Zoom next Tuesday 23rd June at 10.00am for our final goodbye!

Have a restful and fun summer everyone!
