We all had a fantastic time at the beach! We were a bit worried about the weather when we got on the coaches to go but it was fine all day and the sun even tried to appear in the afternoon. All the children had lots of fun digging, making sandcastles, playing games and flying kites. We were all covered in sand by the end of the day and we were all tired (especially staff!) but we all had a thoroughly good day.
On Friday 24th June we had our annual Sports day where we had lots of fun with Mr Gilroy leading the different activities. We explored space hoppers, egg and spoons, sacks, balancing buckets and then went onto the field for some races. Well done to all the children who took part and even had a go at racing around the whole field!! A big thank you to Mr Gilroy.
In our first week back after the holidays we celebrated the Queen's birthday by having activities relating to the Queen. The children drew pictures, made flags/crowns, read story books and articles about the Queen, and also watched clips from the celebrations on the TV. At the end of the week we had a picnic, where we sang happy birthday to her Majesty and put up the red, white and blue bunting we had made.

Before half-term, our school had a competition for each class to make a beautiful flower display. Each class worked very hard and all the displays were lovely. The displays were then judged by some special visitors and we are pleased to announce that the winner of the best display was the Minion display by Reception. Mrs Murphy and all the children in Reception worked very hard to make the fabulous display so well done! Nursery also did a lovely display linked to our Fairtale topic 'Little red riding hood'.
