Celebration Assembly Friday 17th September 2021
Welcome back to the new school year 2021-22. During the first two weeks back the children have been learning all about mental health and how important it is. In particular, they have been learning all about resilience, how important it is to discuss any worries or concerns and how to be a 'not yet' learner (I can't do it yet!).
All their hard work came together as the classes presented to the rest of the school all they have learnt. It was amazing! Well done everyone!
