Certificates for 19th January 2018

Reading Certificates December 2017

Congratulations to the following children for receiving their reading certificates for reading three or more times a week this half term. The biggest gift you can give your children is to get them reading and praise them when they choose to do so without being asked. If children are motivated to do something on their own they will do so much better in the long run. We thank you for all the help and support you give your children with Reading.

Matchday Mementoes

Rotherham Titans Rugby Match

On Saturday 9th December Ms Roddis and a group of our parents took some of the year three children to the Rotherham Titans rugby match where the children were asked to form the guard of honour as the players came on to the pitch . The children were also able to see the ‘Pre-match analysis’ led by the Coaching Staff and Players. The children had a wonderful experience and we would like to thank Rotherham Titans for inviting us to take part.

This week’s awards…
