Dear Parents/Carers

Here is our ‘This Week at Colleges We Are’ for your information.


This week we are following the children’s interest sparked by the Autumn light and shadows, we will be investigating shadows.

Daisy Room

We will be decorating biscuits and making toast together.

Parent Consultations – Nursery

Parent consultations are taking place for Nursery children this week and next week, w/c 18th November.  Dates for the Daisy Room will follow shortly.  This is an opportunity to meet with your keyworker to discuss your child.  The sign-up sheets are with your keyworker, please do make sure you sign up.

Children in Need

If you would like to support Children in Need, the children are welcome to dress upon Wednesday 13th November in whatever they like and we will be collecting donations.


Your child’s photograph proof cards should now be with you.  Packs can be ordered directly with the photographer online at www.pics4schools, you will need your URN number from your card to view your child’s pictures.

There are lots of pack options on the website.  To receive free back to school delivery you must order by the 20 November 2019. You will need to select the back to school option when checking out.

Orders can be placed after this date but you will be charged an additional postage fee.  If you have any questions please contact the photographer direct via phone or email.



We would be very grateful for any used envelopes for the children to use in the classroom.
