Year 4 Returned

Year 4 were tired but happy when they returned from their residential trip on Wednesday. Mr Brosnan had a big smile on his face as he told us how amazing and brilliant the children had been during the trip. He said their behaviour and general manners were excellent throughout. They all joined in with the activities, had great fun at the disco and met lots of children from the other partnership schools who were also there. Thank you Mr Brosnan, Mr Wright, Ms Burrows and Mr Meadows for taking the children on this exciting adventure.
