Hello everyone……

We can’t believe it is the last week before the summer! Some of you will be big Reception boys and girls and we will miss you so much. It has been strange not saying goodbye properly but don’t forget to come and visit in September when you have grown.

We look forward to seeing all our Nursery boys and girls in September. Have a lovely summer and stay safe!
