Kirk Fenton News

3rd May 2019

Dear Parents / Carers,

Welcome back to the summer term! I hope you were able to rest over the Easter break. I know that the Friends of Kirk Fenton were working hard over the holiday, with the help of several supporting individuals and companies, as we came back to a wonderful transformation in our Early years and Year One outdoor areas. The whole area has been cleared, tidied, dug, planted, painted, swept and rebuilt and it is fantastic. Myself, the staff and children would sincerely like to thank all those involved as it looks amazing and has renewed everyone's interest in outdoor learning. Thank you so much!

Mrs Karen Williams
