If you would like to order a pack of Christmas cards (or other products with the same design on)you will be able to do so from https://www.rivagifts.com/
More information will be sent out with the proof cards soon.
Autumn Harvest appeal
Thank you to Frederique and Jenny from who visited us on Tuesday 8th October from WsM Foodbank. Our Little Learners asked some great questions and were very interested to find out where the food parcels were going next.
A special thank you to all of our families who made a donation, with your help we were able to donate three boxes of items to a very worthy cause.

Little Learners Literacy Workshops held at Hewish
Little Learners Literacy Workshops held at West Wick – June 2019
We were pleased to welcome families to our first of a series of Literacy Workshops, run by Kim Beynon. All of our Little Learner families are invited to two interactive sessions to learn about how to support their child’s literacy development. Our aim is to ensure all Little Learners are exposed to a wide and rich literary experience with ultimate high literacy acquisition. We expect that all participating children and families will benefit from an enjoyable shared and sustained thinking experience and hope that families use some of the new skills learned in their children’s home learning experiences.
Week one – Owl Babies
Week two – The Hungry Caterpillar
Week three – Slinky Malinky
Week four – Room on the Broom
Week five – So Much
