Easter Service March 2024

World book day 2024 - Owls

We thoroughly enjoyed a visit from Simeon Wood and his Flute Emporium today in school. Simeon is a talented musician and had us all enthralled with his flute playing. Not only this, but he kept us entertained by playing a variety of handmade instruments!

September 24th - Cycle day 

Unfortunately, the weather played a big part in us not being able to do our whole event.  However, teachers had planned some great activities for the day including; design a world championship t-shirt, acrostic poetry, baking “wheel” biscuits for the whole school.  The children estimated how many miles the whole school would complete    during the time trial.  Mrs Langham and Mrs MacDonald, braved the weather in the afternoon and took the children out to complete laps of the playground.  Each class gave out prizes for different activities. All in all a great day.
