Friday 29th April 2022 

Good Afternoon Parents & Guardians. 

We hope that everyone had a lovely Easter Break.

A reminder that Monday is a Bank Holiday, so the children will return to school on Tuesday 3rd May.

There have been changes to PE Days in some cases now the children are going swimming.  Please refer to the section further down in the newsletter to check for changes.


Reading Loyalty Cards 

We have been so impressed with the number of children that have been using their loyalty cards at the Severn Hospice shop in Monkmoor and purchasing books.

As a reminder, children are able to purchase books at a 50% discount with their loyalty card from the Monkmoor Severn Hospice Shop.  They will receive a stamp on their loyalty card and once they have achieved 10 stamps, they will be able to chose a book for free.
