We Wish You A Merry Christmas!

We would like to say a huge thank you for the lovely Christmas presents, cards and Christmas warm wishes that we have received this week. We have had a wonderful term with the kids and we are so proud of the amazing individuals that they are developing into. They have been an absolute pleasure to get to know and to teach!

From all of the Year One team, we wish you all a very happy Christmas and a fun and happy year in 2021.

We hope that you enjoy the Christmassy activities for today.
