London Landmarks - October 2021

As part of our Great Fire of London topic, the children in Key Stage One have been learning all about different London landmarks.

Sports Festival - September 2021

This week, Key Stage One enjoyed their Sports Festival where they took part in a range of activities such as 'The Egg and Spoon', 'Muddy Puddle Jumping' and lots more.

We would like to thank all of the adults who came to support and cheer the children on.
