Dear Parents and Carers,
Hope you have all had a lovely half term enjoying the Autumn sunshine. The children have come back very happily. They have been very excited today about our Homerton Fireworks display. The display is very low key with quieter fireworks, but provides a good opportunity to talk about safety and children usually enjoy this shared event which takes place in our garden during the session.
Another event this week is that we have a new catering company called ‘Dolce’, who have taken over from Cambridge Catering Services. So far they have provided very delicious fresh meals cooked by Angela, who has worked very hard to ensure it has been a success.
Below are the usual diary date reminders and there are also some attachments to read about applying for Reception places and getting a flu spray for your child.
