Dear Parents,

Congratulations to Class 2 on their Class Assembly

We all learnt so much at Class 2’s assembly this week. They shared their topics of the ‘Weather’ and their research into ‘The Great Fire of London’. We were very impressed with their singing, drama and super science.  Thank you to parents and carers who came to support them.

Cross Country Congratulations

Well done to all our KS2 children who ran around Catterick Race course yesterday.
