We have enjoyed a very busy first term term in school with a number of children being able to go on school trips in the last few weeks. There are more trips planned for next term, starting with Year 5 going to the National Space Centre on the first day back.

Today year 3 are celebrating the end of their topic work on the Egyptians with a jam packed Egyptian Day. We have also had a visit from local police officers who have been in to talk to our Early Years children about people who help us. Finally, in Year 2 we have been setting fire to houses as part of the Great Fire of London topic work.
