Dear Parents and Carers,


Well what a great week!  Dinosaurs landed in our hall and Y1/2 loved it! Y3/4 had a great day at the Wetlands. Y6 had a screen printing session with the local artist Sarah Hopkins and made fab Inuit screen prints - these stunning bags would make lovely Christmas presents (order via Squid). We also started our after school drumming club club, which is GREAT fun.
