Green Activities

Our half term ‘Green’ learning will culminate next week with Walk to School week. There will be a chart in each classroom where the children will place a sticker when they have completed an active journey to school in a hope to complete Buster’s ‘Journey around Hertfordshire’. Please help the children complete
this by participating in active journeys whenever possible.
On Tuesday 21st May it is ‘Happy Shoesday’ when children can wear their most fabulous shoes to walk to school in. There will be a walking bus running from Morrisons along the Alban Way, leaving at 8:30 on this day to gain an extra sticker for a ‘Park and Stride’.

Closure- Foundation Stage 23rd May 2019

We are required to make available our Foundation Stage building for a further day of voting on Thursday 23rd May 2019. This is to enable members of the public to vote in the European Union elections. The school will be closed to all pupils in Reception & Nursery on that day. The school will remain open for Year 1 and 2 pupils as the polling station will be accommodated in the Foundation Stage building only. It is not a decision that we have taken lightly and we apologise sincerely for any inconvenience that this causes to families.
