Some of the children in Year 5 and 6 took part in the Inter-Schools Athletic competition at William Howard School. The children entered many field and track events and had a great time.
One again, a very successful and enjoyable summer fair. The sun shone, the children played and we managed to raise £1300 for the PTA funds. Thank you to all who gave up their time to either volunteer or turn up on the day.
This is a chance for our children to showcase their athletic talents. Thankfully the rain held off and all the children enjoyed the various races.
Thank you to everyone who came to support our chocolate themed coffee afternoon, Ready, steady, Cocoa! We had lots of delicious cakes made by the children and parents and a range of Fairtrade refreshments.
Class 2 gave three brilliant performances of their Christmas play entitled ‘A Christmas Recipe’ on Monday and Tuesday. The acting was amazingly confident and all the children sang their hearts out! Pupils, parents and grandparents thoroughly enjoyed watching the Class 2 superstars!

Many thanks to all the volunteers who looked after the school garden over the summer. Look what we picked at our first gardening club of the autumn term – courgettes, carrots and beetroot!
