Thank you to everyone who dressed up for World Book Day – just before
the snow came down! And thank you to everyone who came in to read
their favourite books.
This week Y5 presented assemblies about St David’s Day. We are continuing to give behaviour tokens to classes who line up sensibly and move around school in the right way. Each class has a target of 10 and then they can discuss a reward with Mrs Cross.
