Tithe Barn Times 21st October 2016

Happy Half Term
This term seems to have flown by and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made me feel so welcome and supported in my first half term. It has been a wonderful first half term and it has been fantastic to see the wide range of learning opportunities that the children engage in.
Harvest is always one of my favourite times of the year and the children gave a lovely assembly of songs to celebrate this special time of year. Our appreciation to the many parents who attended this, and all the children and families who brought in a donation of food for charity. Once again everyone has been so generous. Thank-you!!
I hope you have a wonderful half term and I look forward to our next half term together.

The site is supported by a number of big retailers including John Lewis, Amazon and Waitrose- to name just a few.
