Spring Term 2019
Happy New Year and welcome to the Spring Term of Year 3. Our main focus for the first part of the term will be on our production of ‘The Bee Musical’. The children will soon be bringing home scripts and songs to learn. We are sure that it will be an extravaganza for you to enjoy!
We are also very lucky to receive some coaching sessions this half term in gymnastics and multi-skills.
We hope that it will be a successful and enjoyable term!

The marvellous weather added an extra touch to our very successful outdoor day! The children enjoyed a fashion show, playing with lego, sports games and the all important water fight! A great, wet time was had by all! (Though Mrs Etherington definitely won...)
