Please can you encourage your children to keep toys/collecting cards at home – they are becoming a distraction to learning.  

We are here to help and support you, please feel free to send in any questions or concerns via office admin or if you are happy to, catch us at the door at the beginning/end of the day. 

Thanks for your continued help and support. We hope you all have a lovely, safe Easter holiday!  

We look forward to seeing everyone in Term 3! 

The P2 Team 😊
