Throughout the day, children took part in a number of activities to bring their topic to an end including making papyrus paper and neck collars, and learning how

The sun was shining and the children were smiling!

On Thursday 22nd June, Mrs Lockett and Mrs Stanyer’s classes joined children from other local schools to perform with the world-famous Hallé Orchestra in front of an audience at the Victoria Hall in Hanley.
