Dear Parents,

A huge thank you to the 17 parents who filled in the clubs questionnaire. The responses are very helpful. The link below is still open if you would like to give us an insight to your thoughts on our club provision.

I am sat listening to the children practice for tonight's performance in the village. The performance and procession is the culmination of some great work and I'd like to thank the staff and helpers for their hard work.

We have been talking about junior parkrun in assembly, so, if your child is interested and you can get to Rock Park in Barnstaple for 8.45am on a Sunday the link is here to register (it is free but you need to print out a barcode for them to get a time).

Have a lovely weekend and don't forget to have a look at the dates coming up!

We are collecting donations for the shoe box appeal for homeless people this Christmas. You can make up a box or donate items and we will put the box together.

Donations can be dropped off at Tiddlers.

Thank you for your ongoing support. From the Tiddlers team!
