Week Commencing 25th June 2018

Well done for all your hard work this week! We hope you enjoyed representing your colour team on sports day. 4W, 4H and 4C enjoyed their pizza picnic on Friday, they looked so delicious!  Have a look at children in 4C enjoying their yummy creations in the slideshow below.


Please note, there is no class homework this week.


Don't forget that it is INSET day on Friday 6th July.

4P and 4C battled it out on the football pitch to try and reach the final.  4C went 1-0 up after half time after a cracking goal by Danayo.  However, following a foul at the other end of the pitch, 4C conceded a penalty and Joseph Fisher from 4P equalised.  It went to a penalty shoot-out and 4P finally won 3-2.  Well done to 4P who join 4H in the final.
