Head Teacher: Mrs Julie Berrow Deputy Head Teacher: Mrs Jane Cross

In assembly on Monday, Mrs Berrow continued the theme of being kind to each other and what that looks like with our friends in school.

Year 4,5, and 6 are singing “What about us” with Miss Kettridge in singing assembly (from Unicef) and Y1,2 and 3 will be learning “Right to be wrong” - a song about having the right to make mistakes.

Y5 visited Shirelands Mosque this week. The feedback from the visit has been very positive and learning will be followed up in school. Reception went on a local walk to look at vehicles and learn about crossing roads safely as part of their learning about Transport.
