Congratulations to Australia class on their brilliant assembly this morning on Comic Relief Day. After sharing their recent science work, they went on to entertain everyone with Red Nose day jokes and a song. Well done.
Well done to the members China Class. On Tuesday they visited Southsea and Ryde seafronts as part of their geography work. We were delighted to receive an email from a member of the public who was travelling on the same hovercraft as the children. She commented “I want to send a note of congratulation on the excellent behaviour of the children on the hovercraft…they are a pleasure to travel with. They waited calmly and quietly for at least 20 minutes before the flight. I’d love the children to know how good they were.”
