Well done to both netball teams who won their matches again Waltham Holy Cross this week. The A Team won 5-0, whilst the B Team won in the last minute of the match 1-0. The children had a talk by local Police Officers informing them how to be safe during Halloween, so I hope you all have an enjoyable and safe half term and will see you all on Tuesday 1 November.
