Dear Parents,

Outdoor Classroom Day
Last year we had just Foundation Stage taking part in Outdoor Classroom Day, this time we had the whole school! Talking to the children yesterday, I know they enjoyed the various activities. Have a look on the school’s website for photos from the day. Many thanks to Mrs Maunoury for organising the day.

Sulgrave Manor Trip
For parents with children in Year 3, we have a number of parents who have not made a contribution or given permission for their child to attend this trip on Wednesday. If you do not tick the box on Parent Pay giving permission we cannot take your child to Sulgrave Manor. Please can you check on Parent Pay as soon as possible. Thank you.

Parent Workshop
The Burford Partnership of schools have invited Matthew Tobin, Senior Lecturer in Education from Oxford Brookes to lead a parent workshop ‘Reading with your Child’ on 19th June at 7:00-8:30 at Burford School Library. Mr Tobin has been leading training for teachers across the partnership looking at teaching inference and deduction and we would like to offer you the opportunity to learn how to support your child learning these key reading skills.
