Snow Days!

Who would have thought the snow could bring things to a standstill at the beginning of March!

I hope everyone enjoyed their snow days - built snowmen, threw snowballs or went sledging! It has made the school playground very white and unfortunately the stormy weather claimed one of trees out the…

Half term return is busy!

My goodness what a busy week we have had after our half term holiday!

P6 started the week with a fantastic trip to Castleward. Their topic this term is World War 2 so they were evacuated to the country in appropriate outfits - they all looked amazing as 1940's school children!

P5 then took…

Snow day!

What a day - the snow fell heavily last night and we woke to a crisp white morning! The children all had a ball playing in the snow - the P4-7 built a fabulous snowman and P1-3 loved their sledging down the hill. (and so did Mr Green and Miss Keery!) To make sure everyone got home safely we hope…
