It’s Behind You…

We had a lovely time at the Pantomime watching ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We sang carols and enjoyed a yummy Christmas lunch. We have worked hard all term to earn the treat that we decided we wanted to work together to achieve. We hope you have a restful break and that the festivities are fun filled! We look forward to seeing you in 2015!
