What an amazing year we have had in Year Five. The children have made great progress and I could not be happier, they have shown great resilience. The Challenge X was a great success and that is all down to the children who planned, organised and manned the stalls. I wish them all the best for Year Six and I am sure they will continue to develop and progress with the support of Miss Bowkett. Have a restful break and stay safe.  Well done to Ruby who won the raffle at the festival.
