Year 1 children celebrated Father's Day with a special assembly this morning, we shared the poem we had written and then every child told their adult just why they love them. Afterwards, we had a penalty shoot out and a football match; children against adults. Thank you to all who attended. โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€


Dear Families, please note that Fathers Day assembly is for year 1 only.
Thank you
