World Book Day

Everyone really enjoyed the chance to watch a live production of The Railway Children and the chance to dress as a favorite book character.

Thank you to staff and parents

A GREAT BIG THANK-YOU to everyone who helped to spread grit on the playgrounds this morning. The children were able to go out to play safely at break time.
