The sun defiantly brightens everything up, fingers crossed the sun comes back quickly!

Comic Relief

Well done to everyone who participated in Comic Relief, especially Amber Brooks and Millie Eastwood who organised ‘Guess the number of sweets in a jar’.  In total we raised £606.  Well done everyone!


Our netball team played Alderton Junior School last Friday.  The A Team lost 12-0, but the B Team won 2-0.


Well done to the girls (and boy) who played in the netball rally this week.  The A-Team came 7th out of 11 teams and the B Team came 6th out of 9 teams.


All the schools have played their matches now and our Football Team did us proud and came third in the league.
