Hello Yellow Day08Oct2021

Hello Yellow Day 2021 On 8th October, help spread the word that whatever you're going through, you're not alone with your mental health, by wearing something yellow and donating £2 to YoungMinds. Join us! Its normal to have ups and downs - and this year might have felt a little more down than up. We've all felt the stress of lockdown, worries about the impact on our families and uncertainty about the future. But it's the little things that have got us through it - the morning walks, singing in the shower, the perfect cuppa or the heart to heart when you were at your wits end. Things can get better. Saying #HelloYellow this World Mental Health Day is a little thing we can do to make a BIG difference to young peoples' mental health. Because a little yellow goes a long way:) You can donate via: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/hy2021-107455?utm_campaign=lc_frp_share_transaction_transactional_--_page_launched_--_campaign&utm_content=ddee7979-8dd3-40fd-8e76-d7d96abf8e78&utm_medium=email&utm_source=postoffice&utm_term=1631880144939

Reading

We expect Year 5 children to change their own reading books as often as possible, bringing their reading records in to school frequently to be checked by the class teacher.  We encourage you to read as much as you can - at least 20 minutes every day! Miss Pryor, Miss Harman and Miss Johnson are all avid readers so please let us know any recommendations you might you...
