Another fantastic Young Voices concert for Parklee tonight - is this our eleventh or twelfth year? I’ve lost count!
As ever, our children have been beautifully behaved and were definitely the best singers!
Looking forward to YV2020 already! 🎤🎼❤️🤩
Since returning back to school in 2019 my grandaughter doesn't have a homework book anymore, ie paper, starting from scratch using imagination and using a pen.
I particularly dont like the purple mash homework on a tablet .
My grandaughter loved the old fashioned way of homework and so did I and her mum too.
The idea of just using your thumb and auto correction ( which is happening with my post now) really isnt what I/we dont want for her.
Would love to hear what other parents think.
Thank you.
I have 5 uniforms (no jumpers) for Parklee if anyone needs them, age 9-10, shirts are Burgundy and have logo. Free ###
Big day tomorrow!
Thank you so much for helping me grow... we will miss you Parklee 💕
What a Fabulous production of ‘ Oliver twist’
Tonight at Parklee !
Some amazing acting and singing !
Well done all year 6
Loved it ! X
