Beauty and the Beast – Christmas treat from the PTA

The PTA are treating the whole school to a trip to see Beauty and the Beast at Melton Theatre on Thursday, 14th December. This has been made possible by the tremendous amount of fundraising they carry out each year. So, if you have bought a cake, a raffle ticket, donated a prize or supported in any other way – THANK YOU!

Children in Need – Friday 17th November

Inspired by Pudsey’s multi-coloured eye patch, the prefects are inviting everyone to come in colourful clothes on Friday 17th and bring a donation for Children in Need. Over the course of that week, the classes will be taking part in the 1000 Burpee Challenge, can each class make it to 1000 by the end of the week?
