Athletics is on in 2 weeks on Wednesday 6 November and i am running the hurdles. If you are planning to come down to watch,  or ned a good excuse to skip work for the day could you consider helping me out on the hurdles recording winners and generally keeping me sane?  Drop me an email or catch up with me at school. Thanks in advance.

While i have your attention Seed 2 Table starts next week on Friday and we can always use more help. So if you can be free to help from 9- 12.30 ish to cook or garden i would love to hear from you.  You don't have to be any sort of expert...just keen.  Your child will be in Seed 2 Table in year 5 so it would be good practise for you. 

Have a wonderful weekend.  See you on Tuesday.

Max made a letterbox.

I made the letterbox in the holidays with my dad. We worked on it each night. I included the door from the cassette player we wrecked(explored) in science last term! Can you see it?
