As you are reading this the children, staff and families will have been enjoying a well earned holiday, as well as remembering and celebrating Easter. This was marked in school by a lovely assembly by Alan Wadsworth and the class 1 children making their specially embroidered Easter cards. Their sewing skills were very impressive!
Our friends in Socx are looking forward to our next visit and have been making plans for our entertainment. They are hoping that their visit last year and the video quizzes which we have run during the year both for adults and in the schools will have encouraged more of you to consider visiting them. You can be sure of a warm welcome. The area is very close to action of the First World War and as we are remembering the centenary of the start of the war, a visit to one of the cemeteries or other places of interest might be on the cards.
