Year 6 Leavers Assembly 2021 | July 15, 2021

Circumstances have been a little different for the year 6 leaver’s production this year so we have had a go at some film making. We discovered a lot of acting talent that we were unaware of and there are some award winning performances from the children.

They had a great time making the film and learning new skills and with the technical wizardry of Mr Williams we have a film.

We hope you enjoy watching it as much as the children enjoyed making it. They were truly creative.

1. Wow! What A Year! + Dynamite.
2. Memories and Thank Yous.

Activity Week 2021 | July 14, 2021

This week at school, we have some amazing events going on. Everyone will be taking part in a variety of outdoor activities, as well as class-based well-being workshops and crafts. We thought it would be the perfect way to end what has been a very different, and challenging, school year and we hope that all year groups have the best time taking part in lots of new, exciting challenges.

Despite the typical British weather, we’ve been having a brilliant time and everyone has been getting themselves involved in everything!
