A huge thank you to Mrs Cattell , Miss Lawlor and Mrs Dudgon for all their dedication, commitment and hard work over the last year.

Transition Day

Yesterday the children spent the day with their new class in order to meet with their new teacher. All the children enjoyed the day and they loved being in the next year up just for a day. Thank you all the parents who came along to meet the teachers and find out a bit more about our plans for next year. We look forward to working with you all in September.

Production

Our KS2 production of Ye-Ha was very well received by everybody who came along. Well done to all the children, especially our year 5 and 6 children who had to learn many

lines for their parts. They all performed really well, well done. Thank you to all the parents who provided fabulous costumes and props and for coming along to watch the shows. We hope you enjoyed it as much as us.

Concert

Our musical concert on Tuesday afternoon was very well attended – it was lovely to see so many of you there. The children were fantastic and played either the recorder, guitar or keyboard brilliantly. Well done also to choir who are a real joy to work with. Huge thanks to Mrs Davies and Mr Hall for all their hard work and commitment in ensuring the children get the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument. We are hoping to put on further concerts later on in the year.

Last week of term

Next week is the final week of term and we have lots to look forward to.
