YEAR 2 TRANSITION DAYS TO THE JUNIOR SCHOOL

Our Year 2 children will be visiting the Junior School on Tuesday 9th and Friday 12th July in readiness for September. They will be meeting their new teachers & finding their way around! This helps greatly with the transition to Junior School and means the children are familiar with their new teacher and get to know new routines.

Could we please ask that orders are returned by Thursday 27th June.

 

FRIENDS OF SEATON ACADEMY

The Friends of Seaton Academy would like to thank the children for taking part in their design a logo competition.  The standard was high, and the class winners and overall winner will be given their certificates in assembly.

A Facebook page has been set up www.facebook.com/friendsofseatonacademy - please note this is for the Friends of Seaton Academy and their activities, and is not for discussion of school matters. We want to be able to communicate with as many parents, staff and other interested people as possible, so please like/follow/share the page.

It’s an exciting time and the committee have lots of ideas but we will need your help to make a big difference to the children.  We are hoping to be able to raise money to fund a school trip among other things!

 

 

 

MATHS/PE WEEK

Week commencing 8th July, there will be lots of fun activities during this week. Could we ask that children wear their PE Kit/Sports clothes/Trainers all week (Reception/Nursery children – details will follow for their trip day.)
