Message from Mrs Keating

 

Hi Owls! Just a quick message to say that I'm really missing you. I hope you are all ok, keeping healthy, happy and safe. I've seen a few of you around whilst doing our daily exercise but hope to see you all very soon.

 

Take Care- from Mrs Keating

 

Key Information about being an Owl

P.E.

This will be on Thursdays and Fridays.

Please ensure your P.E. kit is in school every day, in case there is a visitor or change to the usual routine.

Water Bottles

Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school for use in the classroom – this will avoid the need for ‘popping out’ for drinks during learning time.
