Aim High


We celebrated the coronation of King Charles

"Aim high" is our school moto. Today the children asked Helen Skelton some very good questions about how to achieve ambitious goals. Helen did a fantastic job at inspiring the children and explaining how to achieve big things! We thank Helen for taking so much time out of her busy schedule to inspire out children. We look forward to seeing what fantastic things our children will achieve in the future! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Look what we learnt to do at after school club.
