I am not really sure how or why, but Christmas always seems to take me by surprise, and as all the staff at school are wondering how they will quite pack everything into the last 4 weeks of school, I found myself reflecting on the last year here at Irthington.
It has been a really positive and successful year filled with some new and exciting events and learning experiences.
Way back in January the whole school enjoyed adding a tunnel onto our willow dome, members of Class 3 took part in a climbing competition, the football team took part in a competition at the Sands Centre and represented themselves well.
