We had a glorious first week back for the P4-7 children including all our new children. I know that the outdoor learning and active experiences have been really enjoyed by all.

This week we have World Water Day on Monday, National Day of Reflection to mark the anniversary of the first UK lockdown for Covid and World Meteorological Day on Tuesday, Wear a Hat Day on Friday and Earth Hour on Saturday.
