    RE Family Challenge

    Most year groups this term are studying the Salvation concept in Christianity. This is the Christian belief that humans have been saved from sin, death and separation from God by Christ's death on the cross and his subsequent resurrection.

    For this term's challenge families were asked to work together to create an Easter garden whilst talking about, and sharing together, what Easter means to you. We were so pleased to receive over 30 separate gardens. You are all so creative!  

    To view all the Easter activities visit the Easter Activities album HERE

    Well Done Year 6!

    Year 6 have coped brilliantly with the SATs this week. No fuss - just resilience, determination and hard work. We are really proud of them all :)

    They enjoyed their game of rounders on the field this morning before choosing their own activities. We had dodgeball, football, tennis, hula-hooping, origami and colouring. It was lovely seeing the children set up and organise their own activities and working together ☺️ and then of course a visit from the ice cream van in the afternoon.

    Well done, Year 6 ����
