Welcome to Dosbarth Mrs Allan Page!
If you would like your child to have a fruit snack in the morning, Please pay £1 on a MONDAY for the week. You are welcome to provide your own fruit but please clearly label with your childs name.
If you would like your child to bring a water bottle to school, please ensure that it is labelled with your child's name and this will be made available to them throughout the morning.
Please label all clothing. As the children all have the same uniform we are unable to find lost clothing that isn't labelled.
Please also label your child's bag (ON THE OUTSIDE) so that it can be clearly identified by the children and staff, this will help us to send the correct bag home with each child.
P.E. is on a Friday morning, please could children wear joggers or leggings with their school tops and a pair of trainers as this is more comfortable for them. Children are unable to take part if they are wearing jewellery. (Stud earrings can be covered over with plasters before coming to school)

We have been talking about when we were babies, how we have grown and the things we have learnt to do.
We made a class friendship recipe. We each chose an ingredient that would help to make a good friendship and we chose how much of it to put in to our recipe. We gave it a big shake and a mix in the parachute.
We then made our own friendship recipes.
