Miss Tagliati xx

Welcome to a new school year and to

19 new brilliant busy bumble bees!



We have a busy year planned, starting with a trip to London!

This WOW day will give the children an amazing opportunity and enable them to gain a closer insight

into our Autumn topic, Fallen Fields. In London we will be exploring and investigating facts about WW1,

visiting the Imperial War Museum and Buckingham Palace.


In Flanders Fields by John McCrae                                             

In Flanders fields the poppies blow             We are the Dead. Short days ago                    Take up our quarrel with the foe:

Between the crosses, row on row,                We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,            To you from failing hands we throw

That mark our place; and in the sky           Loved and were loved, and now we lie,         The torch; be yours to hold it high.

The larks, still bravely singing, fly              In Flanders fields.                                                If ye break faith with us who die

Scarce heard amid the guns below.                                                                                             We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

                                                                                                                                                              In Flanders fields.


How to help your bumble bee to flourish!

Make sure your child has their PE Kit in school every day as you never know when the

Bumble Bees will be buzzing around outside!


From Monday 9th September the bumble bees will be attending weekly swimming lessons.

Please ensure that the children come to school with an appropriate swimming kit (boys need tight fitting trunks,

no ‘surfer style’ swimming trunks and girls need one-piece swimming costumes) If your child needs goggles, please pop in and pick up a

goggle permission form. Jewellery, including earrings, is not allowed. Swimming hats should be worn if earrings cannot be taken out.
