Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Rights of the child : June 2024 - Article 6 - Right to life and to be healthy

 

Well, our choir was magnificent at Primary Partners and our performance was WOW! The ABBA medley was show stopping and we certainly sparkled. I`d like to thank Mrs.Davies and Ms.Hopkins for all their hard work - it really paid off. And of course thanks to our wonderful children for their commitment and our parents for you support. Please click here to see. 

 

Our sports day was fabulous. The sun was shining and the children from N-Y6 were excellent. It was lovely to see so many parents/carers and have such lovely feedback. I am sure you will agree with me, the staff were such great sports and their race was hilarious !! Click here.

This will take place on 26th June. Children will need to wear their school uniform. The class photo is very popular as many children and parents treasure this as they fondly remember what their class looked like.
