Dear Parents and Carers,


🗝Last week`s key events🗝

Y4/5 had a fantastic trip to Big Pit Coal Museum. I think they loved the descent in the pit cage to visit the places where generations of coal miners worked. Please click here!


Circus Eruption came to work with Y6. The class enjoyed a workshop linked to developing physical literacy,  resilience and well-being.  They had a go at  plate spinning, juggling, hula hoops and diablo! It was superb!
