Football Match

Well done to the footballers who played in the football match against Norbury Hall School last night. Unfortunately they didn’t win but played fantastically well and showed excellent sportsmanship throughout the game. Well done Scott, Fin, Luke H, Harry W, Harry C, Amie T, Thomas K, Adam A, Ben S and Freddie.

Children in Need

This year Children in Need is on Friday 18th November. The theme is ‘Spotacular.’ We would like the children to come to school dressed in spots and bring a donation of £1. There will also be lots of other fundraising activities going on during the day. Further details of these activities will follow in a letter next week. We look forward to seeing the children dressed in their spots!
