Monday 5 – Sunday 11 March

Well what a fortnight we have experienced, but there is a definite feeling of Spring in the air, and the birds seem as relieved as we are that the snow has melted! Dawn chorus has definitely arrived. Fingers crossed this is the sign of things to come!

Last week, we enjoyed getting back into our routine after the snow days and have enjoyed activities such as baking and perfomrning our school play, The Wind in the Willows.

Back with friends after the Beast From the East closed school! Time for some catching up!
