Ms McCoy's Favourite Childhood Book

When I was growing up many moons ago, I used to love to read adventure stories. My most favourite of those was I am David by Anne Holm. I think the story was so special to me because I received it as an award from school and as soon as I opened it, I was captivated by the adventure. I've even dug the book out of my bookcase so that my children's can enjoy it too. A fabulous read that it still avaible to buy today from any book sellers and if I remember rightly, it's even been made into a film. 

Year 5 Production

What an amazing family assembly Year 5 produced on Friday. They were outstanding. They didn't just write some of the script but performed it with loud clear voices, enthusiasm and joy. I was extremely proud. Well done Year 5.

Old Chapel Visit

What an amaing visit Year 5 had today when they visited Old Chapel. The children were amazed at the Victorian building and loved finding out about the history of the church. They thoroughly enjoyed going into the pulpit, vestry, balcony and especially having drinks and a biscuit. A big thank you to Mrs Buckle and Mr and Mrs Lowe who showed us around.
