Apologies: date on the newsletter is wrong!

My sincere apologies the date for the 'Meet the Teacher' has been wrongly typed into the Dates for your Diary on the recently published Newsletter. The correct date is the one in the main text of the Newsletter.
Come and see my class and meet my teacher on Wednesday 25th September as we explore ‘Active Maths’. This is an afternoon event from 1;30-2:30 and is open for parents, close family members and PRE-SCHOOL siblings. It is an informal time to  meet and see the class with no individual appointments.
