It was lovely to see so many of our parents, Governors and staff come in to decorate our school this weekend. What a brilliant day! Class 3 had a repaint over the summer and it looked so good with its 2-tone grey that our Governors decided to call a 'Pride of School' Painting Party for the entrance area of school. [...]
It was fantastic to work with class 2 and class 3 today to think about why we raise money for Children in Need. We thought about what we would like our pound to go towards.
