We have asked parents and carers to help us keep the children connected during this time by sending in photos of what the everyone is doing during their time at home. It was really lovely receiving the photos. We have also asked the staff to send photos of what the children are doing in school. Thank you to everyone who did send photos in, we hope you enjoy the galleries below; Year 3 Year 4 A special video from one of our Year 4 pupils Year 5 Year 6 In school #Wholeschool #Y
Last week 8 year 5/6 girls attended the netball B festival at Alleyn Court school. Six schools were there, we played Hamstel and won 3-1, we then played Blenheim and won 2-0, we then played Bournes Green and won 2-0 and finally we played Darlinghurst which we lost 5-1. We therefore only lost one game and came second overall.
Well done to all the girls involved, who all showed improvement as the games went on. #Year6 #Year5 #Wholeschool #Sport
