Monkton Park Newsletter 11th May 2018

Despite this being a 4-day week, the children have been very busy visiting the library, secondary schools and enjoying Forest School. Outdoor activity continues over the weekend with our Scarecrow Trail and the May Mile at Sheldon School. We look forward to seeing many families at these events. Next week is SATs week for our Y6 pupils - we recommend a relaxing weekend with plenty of sleep and fresh air!
