Year 5 Assembly

We enjoyed a trip back through time this morning. Year 5 danced and sang their way through the decades since the 50’s. We were especially honoured as Elvis Presley called in and sang ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ for us too. Thanks Elvis and thank you Year 5 you were fab!

SATs Week

Year 6 are alive and well and have survived SATs week. They have been truly amazing and worked really hard. They have also been exceptionally calm and mature during this rather stressful period. So, well done you lovely children. We are all very proud of you. Thank you to all the staff who have supported and helped and thank you to parents who made sure each child was in on time every day.

Reception at Fabrica

Our reception children wandered over to Fabrica today. They went along to explore the two art installations on show there during the festival. Both installations are by Jacob Dahlgren.
