Take a look at our fantastic posters, Year 1 tried really hard with their drawings and descriptions.

This week we have had a fantastic visit from Helen Teasdale who came to see us from Stagecoach. The children leaned some actions and words for the delightful song 'A spoonful of sugar'. Year 1 and 2 did a fantastic job of learning the words, actions and adding a smile to everyones faces in school. We would love to see Helen again, a big thank you from Year 1 and 2!
