Friday 18 November - Non-Uniform & Optional Crazy hair day 
In support of Children in Need, Friday will be non-uniform and children can have crazy hairstyles if they wish. Please note, if your child has a swimming lesson on this day we politely ask that they do not wear any hair dye/glitter as this may prevent them from their swimming lesson.

Monday 21 / Tuesday 22 November - Scholastic Book Fair
This is an opportunity for children and parents to buy books from a huge list of titles. The more money the school raises from book sales, the more the school can earn back in books. This book sale will take place in the school hall from 2:45pm. A perfect opportunity for Christmas present buying!! Please note that all payments will be electronic through scanning a QR code. Please note that Rock Notes cancelled
