Netball League vs Great Binfields

3 December 2018

On Monday 3rd of December 8 children from Year 5/6 played their second game of the school Netball League against Great Binfields Primary. With a very slow start against an experienced and strong team we were down by 9 points to 1 by half time and it looked like it was all over. But with a change of formation and positions in the second half of the game and extremely strong determination from all of the children, we managed to fight back to only an 11 to 8 point loss. Great game of netball and looking strong for our next game! Player of the Match: Roxanne

Panto Roadshow

12 October 2018

On Friday 12th October Mrs Duke arranged for a visit for the KS2 children from the Anvil. The Panto Roadshow arrived and gave the children an utter treat. The actors introduced the children to lots of information on pantomimes with lots of comedy and jokes attached. It was an absolute pleasure to see the children giggle and enjoy themselves. The panto roadshow also discussed about the new pantomime this year at the Anvil called, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with Tracey Beaker star, Dani Harmer. Thank you to Flis Pitman from the Anvil for thinking of the school for this treat.
