Congratulations to Class 3 on their Class Assembly
Class 3 took us on an amazing trip to India in their class assembly this week. Their excellent speaking skills were used to present work on cities, geographical features, cultures and traditions of India. In their drama we learnt more about the Hindu faith and they shared their scientific knowledge on Light. They used songs to learn times tables and we were all impressed with the quality of their poetry. Thank you to parents and carers who came to support them.
Well done to our Y5/6 Gymnastics Team
We finished in 4th place in the area gymnastics competition at Richmond School last week. The marks were very close and the feedback was that the team performed their sequences to the very best of their ability. Well done for all your hard work and determination.
Cross Country Congratulations
Well done to all our KS2 children who ran around Catterick Race course yesterday; everyone completed the race which was a great achievement.
