Year 3 Visit to Trinity
What a superb performance of Joseph and the amazing technicolour dreamcoat, we watched! We could have been in the West End. The singing, dancing and sets were inspiring and our feet were bopping to the songs! Thank you to Trinity School for this wonderful opportunity.

Next week, they will expand on their ideas in a ‘Hustings’ style assembly! Canvassing begins thereafter until polling day on Thursday! All pupils will vote and the winning year group will have their idea made into reality.
