Welcome to Class 3P
We Hope you are all fit and well and ready for a new start this term! We have got lots of wonderful activities ready and waiting for you.
We are excited to be working with Liverpool FC with their outreach team this term and I am sure the children will keep you updated with our activities. The scheme is called

A water bottle will be needed in school. It will be taken home at the end of each day to be cleaned and refilled. (Mr. Perkins has requested water rather than juice.)
Please let us know if you have moved or changed your phone number during the holidays. We will also need to know if somebody new is picking your child up so that they can be added to our “Pick Up” list. (You can phone this information through to the office.)
