Dear parents/carers,

 

As part of our Community Cohesion programme we are providing parents/carers with curriculum overviews so you have an understanding of what your child is learning in school. This is the planned curriculum overview for Spring Term. This is subject to change depending on other school events such as class masses, class trips, class assemblies, school productions, multi-cultural week, walk to school week, sports events and other whole school events.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and see me.

Yours sincerely,                                

Miss Taylor and Mrs Kumara
