Over the last few weeks we have been a hive of activity preparing the school for Christmas. This includes the amazing decorations the staff put up around school and all the hard work that has gone into the Christmas productions and performances.

The first performance was by Key Stage 1 who performed ‘The Little Fir Tree’, for teachers, children, parents and carers.

We also hear from Harper in Year 4 who won a local Bake-Off Challenge, and news reports from all the goings on in and out of school. Happy listening!
