    J M Barrie Day Wednesday 24th Jan.
    As part of our work on Famous People we intend to hold a Peter Pan day in order to celebrate this well known story from the famous author J.M. Barrie. Children are invited to dress up as a character from the story for a donation of £2.00 per child. The donations will be used towards paying for the return of M&M THEATRICAL PRODUCTIONS to perform a pantomime of the story for all children in school on the afternoon of WEDNESDAY 24TH JANUARY. The day will also include treats for everyone as well as prizes for the best costumes on the day. Lower Foundation children who do not normally attend on a Wednesday afternoon, may swap one of their sessions so that they can participate in this exciting event.
