3rd-6th classes enjoyed their school tour to The Crystal Maze on Friday 6th May.

The focus of the tasks was on team work and co-operation and the skills involved both physical and mental challenges.

Crystals were awarded on successful completion of each task. Extra crystals could be earned for good behaviours, excellent team work etc.

All classes were awarded a crystal trophy for the school in recognition of their efforts on the day.

World Book Day Wednesday 3rd March

Today is World Book Day!

For homework the children are encouraged to “Curl up with a Book”.  It would be great if you could do the same!

Thank you to all the children who made such an effort to dress up today.  We had some wonderful costumes.  Mrs Barbara Smith happened to drop in and she picked the winners and Mary Poppins dropped by to give out the prizes! Unfortunately we couldn’t give everyone a prize but whether you won a prize or not, everyone who dressed up are winners in our eyes!

Happy Reading!
