The children (and the adults!) had a fantastic day at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour, we travelled through the Great Hall and embarked on our journey through the wand-er-ful word of Harry Potter. We took a nap in Gryffindor common room, completed a transaction at Gringotts bank, stopped off for a spot of lunch, had a secret conversation with Hagrid in his hut, crept through the forbidden forest and then took a ride on the Hogwarts Express! What a day! A big thank you to all the adults and the children involved!
Last Tuesday 5th December, saw three of our pupils from Phase 1, take part in the School Partnership Multi-skills festival at Buckingham school. A fun packed evening was had by all three and group leader Mr Brown, who joined in with the activities. Lots of new skills were learnt and their efforts certainly didn't go unrecognised. Two of our pupils received special Sports Stars awards for their perseverance and enthusiasm. All three pupils showed great character and should be very proud to represent the school. Well Done.
