We were so impressed that Reception were then able to have the confidence to sing and dance in front of the whole school and their parents. We then welcomed them into our church community, by celebrating Mass in Church.

World Book Day

We had a great time celebrating World Book Day. Each class looked at a particular author and dressed up as a character from a particular book. We held a parade at the start of the day! The standard of the costumes was possibly the best standard we’ve ever had! Well done to all!
