The children are now benefiting from the warmer weather with more activities outdoors, particularly using our extensive grounds for science, PE and art activities. We have lots of sporting activities this half term, and several competitions to participate in.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Easter Bingo, it was a very successful and enjoyable evening.

JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT!
On behalf of all the staff involved with the Joseph production, we would like to congratulate all the children involved in the fantastic performances. The children have utterly excelled, with superb acting, singing and dancing, particularly with all the songs and dances they learned.

Thank you to all of the adults and staff who have supported the children. Their dedication and commitment is mirrored in the efforts of the children, who have thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful experience.
