On Tuesday 16th January Claire and Jen from the parish council came to visit the children to give them the opportunity to choose their favourite pieces of equipment for the new playground on Harrison Close in Halmer End, the results of this will be collated with other schools votes and all taken into consideration before the project takes place. The children had a super time choosing equipment from the different categories and even had the opportunity to put a star sticker on the piece of equipment that was their overall favourite.



The School Council held very successful Christmas discos, the children had a fantastic time dancing and there was even party games chosen by the School Council.
