Last term Megan Hood, Jessica Rowe, Charlie Rowe, Rhiannon Fouracre, Maria Rowe, Ryan Pascoe, Cameron McKenzie, Danny Moon and I went to St John's Primary School to lead an assembly. The assembly was about teamwork and how important teamwork is. We gave a presentation, presented a role play and took part in an activity. The activity was a teamwork game and involved people working in pairs. One person had to guide the other and pick up plastic fruit on the floor. The role play was about a man who was sick and needed help to buy food so a line of people had to pass food from the shop to the man. Some people from the audience joined in. We had a great time.

Curriculum Enrichment Week Although the deadline for payments for most trips is not until the 5th June, we would just like to remind parents/carers to keep up to date with payments for activities.
