13th September 2021

We have had a great start to the term, the children have settled well and are back into the routines ready for learning.

Thank you for all your efforts supporting our school uniform. The children look so smart and first impressions really are very important. Children need wellies (and sun hats on warm days) to enable them to enjoy our wonderful outdoor environment. Please remember to name everything!


All PE lessons and swimming for Rowan & Larch begin this Tuesday as well as after school football club. Please see the Autumn PE arrangement letter from Miss Moffet for timings and further details. Our new NUF coach is one of our former pupils, Thomas Slack and it will be lovely to welcome him back. The children attending the football club will have had their place confirmed by the office. The football clubs have been scheduled on the same day as class PE lessons so the children attending will already be in their PE kit. 


Please make sure that all earrings are removed. Earrings can be very dangerous to young children during playtimes and PE sessions. They can also pose a danger to other children who may stand on them if dropped. School will not be responsible for accidents or loss of earrings. Tape is only acceptable if a piercing is unhealed. Please do not get your child’s ears pierced during the school year.

The children have wasted no time in getting on with learning and we have been particularly impressed with Hallie D, Olivia R, Emily H, Rudy M, Leela W-H, Ollie R, MJ P, Olivia G, Daisy Mc, Lexie S, Imogen O, Alice B –  our first stars of the week for 2021 / 22. Well done everyone, an electronic certificate will be with you soon.

Music to make you happy comes from James B who loves anything Disney.  Here’s How far I’ll Go from Moana.  A great tune to get us all going in the mornings next week!



Bye for now
