Our great news this week is about Y5 performing Shakespeare at the New Alexandra Theatre. Miss Murray’s class performed Romeo and Juliet and Miss Mitchell’s class performed A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The pupils were wonderful and we are very proud of them. If you weren’t there, they will be doing a repeat performance in school and we’ll let you know the dates soon.
Mrs Cross’s assembly on Monday was about Unicef’s Rights Respecting Schools. Pupils discussed pictures from “For Every Child” and how they relate to articles 28 and 29. There is more information on the school website.
