Super Sports Day

Puffins and Penguins had a fantastic time at sports day. We were very proud of the children’s resilience and attitude to the games they played and how they cheered their friends on all they way round the course. Thank you to all the parents who came to support us. It made the afternoon even more special!

Alnwick Castle

Year 1 had a fantastic time when we visited Alnwick Castle. We explored the state rooms and learned some interesting facts from the staff there. We had the chance to dress up as princesses and knights (some of us were even brave enough to take on the Dragon’s Quest) and play some medieval games. We learned about the different jobs in a castle from the artisan to the knight and we even got t make our own clay tiles! We loved exploring the castle grounds and went high up on the battlements.
