Year 6 took the long journey into London to experience the mysteries of the deep in our capital's Sealife Centre. Amongst many things the children saw sharks, rays, lobsters, starfish, jellyfish, octopus and even a turtle.

Prayer Space

posted 9 Nov 2018, 07:01 by Website Admin   [ updated 9 Nov 2018, 07:02 ]

Beginning on November 5th we have been running a Prayer Space in school. It was set up last Friday with the aid of members of Christian Youth Outreach (CYO), who provided much of the equipment and help. Each class has had a chance to visit in small groups and explore. This is time for reflection in a relaxed and calm atmosphere. The children have greatly enjoyed their time in the Prayer Space room and had some lovely experiences.
