Dear Parents

Welcome to the Autumn Term with Early Years Foundation Stage. The children have settled in well and we are looking forward to working with you this year. We have an exciting curriculum planned and we encourage you to talk to your children about what they are learning at school. Please regularly visit the website for key information and photographs of the children learning.
