We have been marking Francophonie week with a special focus in our Collective Worship. Pupils from across the school have been creating wonderful presentations on French speaking countries, using both their Microsoft accounts and hand written posters. The whole school also took part in a quiz about Francophone countries, looking at capital cities, flags and locations.
Reception have been delighted to welcome two new arrivals to the class over the past few weeks. Having counted down the days until they were due to hatch and learning all about how to care for ducklings, they were thrilled to meet Rocket and Star! They have enjoyed seeing them grow and learning, including a very exciting swimming lesson. Thank you to the family in our school community who have supported this wonderful experience for our pupils.
