We had a fantastic day on Saturday at our annual school fete.  The weather was good for us and there was a great crowd joining in with all the activities on offer and supporting the many stalls – we raised an amazing £3,800 and £1,000 was made on the raffle.  Thank you so much for all your support.

Our Reception children are looking forward to their trip on Tuesday to Kingston Maurward, Dorchester.  They will have the opportunity of seeing different animals and how to care for them.

They will leave school at 9.15 am and will be back by 3.15 pm.  They will need to wear a school jumper/cardigan but can wear rough trousers and shoes.  Dependant on weather, please ensure your child has a raincoat or sun hat and sun cream applied before coming to school.  They will receive a packed lunch.

I hope they have a lovely time and the weather is good for them.
