On Friday we had a very special delivery:
Alessia in year 2 completed the mini great north run and the money she raised was kindly donated to the PE department. The department bought a fantastic selection of gymnastic mats displayed here.
On Tuesday our senior girls played hockey against Cambridge International School at home.
An early goal in the first half from Rosie, from a fabulous cross by Milly, and fantastic saves from Timia all kept us ahead early on.
Year 5 went on a trip to Kentwell Hall last week to find out about life in Tudor times. We learnt a lot during our visit and particularly enjoyed finding out gruesome facts! The children had a wonderful day and gained much from the experience. We look forward to our next trip.Read More
