Earlier in the Month

Earlier in the month Katie Evans, from signing hands, came to school to deliver Makaton story telling workshops to each class.

Class Three took part in a football tournament and Class Four an indoor cricket tournament with local schools, which they thoroughly enjoyed and represented the school brilliantly.

Class Three went on a wonderful trip to see The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe at The Birmingham Rep theatre. They chose the trip after thoroughly enjoying the class novel last year.
