Dear Links Families, 

This week at Links we have continued with our artistic flair! Year 2 has recreated Piet Mondrian’s angular art. Year 1 created a flower collage using different coloured magazine pages. Year 4 created Viking Longhouses in DT using a range of materials. We would like to thank all those families who donated materials to support this project. Miss Thurlow and Miss Meara are very grateful to the Links community.
This week, we welcomed our new nursery children and parents to their first stay and play session. We are very proud of our nursery and still have places available. If you have any questions regarding nursery places, please speak to Niki in the school office. 

It was lovely to see all the little ones at Little Links toddler session this week. We are very grateful to Sophie and Raphel, who run the group. Just a reminder; it is on every Tuesday morning, 9:00am- 10:15am and is for parents and their children aged up to 4. Come and join us for a play, sing song and coffee!


End of Term Arrangements

Just a reminder that school will be closing for the Easter Holidays on Thursday 28th March at 1:30pm. There will be no after school club on this day. Links Nursery will close on Wednesday 27th March at the usual time. School will reopen for all children on Monday 15th April 2024.


MUFTI Day and Easter Egg Tombola

Don’t forget that next Thursday, 28th March, will be a non-uniform day. Instead of a money donation, we are asking for donations of Easter eggs and Easter chocolates, as the PTA will be holding an Easter Egg Tombola, after school on Thursday 28th March at 1:30pm.


Don’t forget to buy your raffle tickets!  

The PTA Raffle is back with lots of fabulous prizes.

Tickets are £2 and are available from our PTA Donation page on ParentPay now: . Just write 'Raffle' in the reference section and don't forget to tick 'Gift Aid' if you are a tax payer!
