As part of their English topic, Year 6 have produced a fantastic cross section of The Titanic showing their
impressions of what it might have looked like inside. I was amazed at the detail they had included to

stairwell (see photos).
The VLE will be re-launched before the end of term. We will let you know as soon as it is available!
As we move into the Summer Term, girls will be able, if they wish, to wear a blue gingham summer dress
to school with white socks. We do have a variety of second hand dresses available from the school office

Finally, a reminder that school finishes at 12.15pm prompt on
Friday 27th March (no lunches) for the Easter break and we
return to school on Monday 13th April. All of Mrs Wilson’s and Mr
Allen’s after school clubs are now finished for this term but look
out for the new sports club letters in your child’s book bag early
