πŸ”΄βšͺ Where's Wally? Part One! βšͺπŸ”΄

We had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day last week. Activities throughout the day included: a fun run, drawing Wally, a treasure hunt, memory games, designing a new t-shirt for Wally, card games and of course trying to spot Wally in our Where's Wally? books. So much fun for our girls and boys! Thanks, as always, to Ashley Barley House Photography for the amazing photographs!πŸ₯°


Tomorrow is Where's Wally? Day - remember to wear your red and white stripes as we celebrate World Book Day!


Congratulations to our February Pupils of the Month who were recognised for their kindness, respect, giving their best effort and working hard!

We were delighted to have Ray from TEN Foundations Charity in assembly today with a selection of the school bags made by women living in extreme poverty in the Philippines. The school bags are exceptional quality and the Ten Foundations motto is 'buy one that can change a life.' We intend to have a pop up shop in school in June but Ray has left a selection of school bags and snack bags if you would like to buy one in the meantime. Please call in to school if you are interested. All profit goes directly to the Philippines to transform lives.
