Year 2 enjoyed a brilliant day out at the National Emergency Services Museum in Sheffield today to enhance their history learning about the Great Fire of London. Both classes learnt so much about how life in the 1600s was different to life today- including how fire fighting has changed. We saw real life artefacts and enjoyed exploring old fire engines and trying old different uniforms and equipment from the past.

Reading Ambassadors Announced!

This week, we appointed 12 new, fantastic reading ambassadors to help us out with all things reading around school. Here they are - ready and raring to go!
To take on this prestigious role, children were asked to fill in an application form explaining why they wanted to become part of the team as well as to share any ideas on how they could make an impact! They were amazing! There were so many brilliant applicants - over 60 infact - all with such incredible ideas that it was so difficult to narrow it down! We are so proud of all of the children and overwhelmed with their enthusiasm. What a credit to our school!!
