Work of the Week

Congratulations to Freya from Foxes' class


WOW, Mrs Hamilton was overwhelmed with the response to the Sunflower competition. The standard of entries was really high and all together they make an amazing display.

It was a very difficult decision to chooses just 2 winners, she chose Maddie Bolton for KS1 and Austin Harker for KS2. Mrs Hamilton also awarded a house point to every entry.

The sunflowers will now be displayed in the hall.
