A report from Kitty... "Myah has been really nice to me and she made me feel really good." We learn about PSHE, and we do activities about things such as kindness, today. Our Family Groups have all different ages of kids in them, they're really happy, and everyone comes together to talk about different things and we help each other. [...]
We have had a lovely first week getting to know each other in Class 4. We have discussed and agreed our school rights and responsibilities, how we can go 'above and beyond' not just in our work but showing kindness to each other, produced painted self portraits and have worked together to solve challenges.

However, here's a gallery of photos from our lovely residential in Cheshunt and London. Everyone entered into the activities with determination and enthusiasm, and they all enjoyed a real sense [...]
Some of our children moved up a classroom this afternoon, and some became 'the professionals' in the room, welcoming the newer children in to their classroom.
