Green 2018 - 2019

Mr Robinson

Welcome to Green Class

A very well warm welcome back after the Easter break. I hope you have had opportunity to some decent weather and a few Easter eggs.

Firstly, a huge thank you to all of you who managed to make it to our Green Class assembly. Later on this term, the children  from Green Class and Orange Class will be putting on a LKS2 performance, so please keep these dates free (25th and 26th June).

In addition to this, we will be aiming to go on an educational school trip to Stockport Air Raid Shelters later in the term.

We continue to love all the extra work the children have been doing at home and bringing it in to school, please keep it up. We have dedicated two display areas to show off the amazing work. If you have any questions or want help, you’ll be more than welcome to pop in for a chat. 

Best wishes, Richard Robinson
