Year 1 enjoyed a visit from Mr Brown and Mrs Callaghan this morning as part of their Paddington's Space Mission topic. Children asked both adults lots of questions about the moon landing in 1969 and enjoyed listening to their answers. Some of the questions that the children came up with were fantastic! Thanks to both adults for their time and patience.
The children wrote letters to say thank you to our visitors!

Wow, what a great turnout Class 4 had! There were so many enthusiastic parents who joined us this morning for our PE session with Soccer 2000. Everybody had lots of fun working in teams bouncing footballs to make cones flip over and rolling tennis balls so that they hit the cones. Both children and parents were brilliant at both activities and earned lots of points, especially by getting the special orange cones. Well done everyone - a brilliant and fun start to the week!
