This week 1L performed their class assembly which was a retelling of the traditional tale, ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. The children were super stars, singing the songs enthusiastically and performing their lines with confidence and clarity.

Year 1 had a lovely trip on Thursday 7th. 1S and 1L went to the London Docklands museum where they learnt lots about the seaside.
