Remembrance Day

On Friday 9th November, the children and staff marked Remembrance Day. This year it was particularly significant since it had been one-hundred years since the end of World War One. Each class found out about the war and the sacrifices people from across the globe made for our freedom and liberty. As part of the commemorations, a wreath of poppies was made by each year group. These were displayed during assembly and wishes for peace in the future were shared with the school community.

Stratford - upon - Avon visit

On Wednesday 3rd October, Year 6 went to Stratford to learn more about the Tudors. We started off the exciting adventure by going to a place called Tudor World. We were warmly welcomed by Tudor Kinglsey and Tudor Janet who showed us to our different workshops. One group looked around an interesting museum where we were told about archery, the plague and Tudor ships. After we joined back together, Tudor Kinglsey told us about crime and punishment. In the afternoon, 'William Shakespeare' gave us a tour of his home town!
