One parent who attended emailed to say: ‘I wanted to tell you how impressed I was with Year 2's Changing Materials science party last week. All the children had made a big effort to create interesting and informative displays, and they demonstrated their experiments to the adults in such an engaging way.’

  Message from the Norfolk House Office

We have had a message from the lady who runs the property at Number 3 Princes Avenue, with the curved drive.

She said that she and some of the workmen have had to be very careful as the children have been running on the driveway whilst they have been reversing their vans etc. She was very worried that there could be an accident and that a child may get run over.

We know that it’s very tempting for the children to run up around there as it’s a little hill and hiding place, but please can we ensure this stops happening so that the children remain as safe as possible.

Mini-bus shuttle service
If you are using the minibus service please remember to inform the office if there are any changes to your arrangements.

Snacks
Healthy snacks should only be provided at break times, crisps, chocolate bars & biscuits are not permitted. There will be a list of recommended snacks coming out after half term along with a note regarding the amount of snack to bring in. 

Uniform
Please could you check uniform to ensure you have the correct items and ensure your child’s uniform is clearly labelled.
There will be a 2nd Hand Uniform Sale on Friday 6th March at 8.10am in the front courtyard on the Muswell Avenue site.

Wishing you all a restful Half Term break.
