Stay and Play and Wow afternoons

Each term we hold parent stay and play or wow afternoons where we actively encourage you to come and share in your child’s learning. We love to have parents and children working together to enhance their learning. We have held bridge building competitions, decorated mad hatter’s hats, made Iron Men and had time for you to share your child’s work. Please make sure you keep the dates free! The more parents we can get in – the happier we all are! Come and join with us to celebrate your child!
