Congratulations to 25 Year 5 children who have been chosen to have their writing published in a book of mini sagas. They based their work on their Egyptian topic and told a whole story in just 100 words. This takes skill and alot of ability. Very well done to those children. We look forward to receiving the book in which their work is included. Please see the Year 5 page for more information.

Reception children and their Year 5 buddies walked through Longridge to Christ Church for Connexion Zone on Wednesday 23rd March. They had good fun listening to a story, singing songs and making a model garden. Many thanks to our friends at Christ Church for making us so welcome.

Well done to all the children for walking so sensibly and behaving so well.

Chocolate Bingo
