For world book day, this year, we dressed as forest explorers and spent time in the common building dens. In the afternoon we planned a story board based around our dens. We then practised acting our stories in the common ready for parents to come and watch.
Grandparents were invited into school to join in with our First World War centenary celebrations. The pupils stayed in their class groups and cycled through various activities.
