Last Tuesday a group of Year 4 pupils attended a Bhangra dance workshop at Old Hall school in Wellington. It was fantastic fun learning and performing the moves to the beat of the drum and being able to celebrate Bhangra style!
This term over 70 children have had the opportunity to represent school in sporting activities. This could not happen without the support given by parents and grandparents helping with transport to and from events. A very big thank you to you all.
Also, a very big thank you to Mrs Stuart-Thompson, Mr Cartwright and Mr Muggeridge for their help at girls and boys football club on Thursdays after school.
Cross country club will be returning Wednesday after school next term – we will be needing some parent volunteers to help out. Interested and available? Then please let the office know.
