WW2 Bus

We welcomed the WW2 bus on Monday.  Year 6 all had an amazing time going back to the 1940’s!  All of the costumes were fantastic and the children were all able to discuss what they had learnt.


Dragon’s Den - Enterprise

The Dragons were most impressed with the videos, powerpoint’s and posters.  The twist on jingles is still making Mrs Mace laugh!  Congratulations to Year 3 who are the overall winners of this year’s Dragon’s Den.  We can’t wait to see them selling their goods at the Christmas Fair.  Thank you to our panellists who gave up their time for today.
