Easter Bingo

The hall was brimmed for our Easter Bingo event….literally a full house! It was lovely to bring so many members of our school community together to raise money to enhance the children’s primary school experiences. A massive thank you goes to Mrs Whittam who led and organised the whole event and not forgetting to the staff for helping run the event. Take a look at some photos…

Year 5 Hindu Temple Visit

As part of our R.E curriculum year 5 visited Preston’s Hindu Temple to develop their understanding of Hinduism. This allowed pupils to also develop their understanding of the British Value ‘Mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs’. A massive thank you to all our parents and governors who came along as volunteers. It was lovely to also have Father Jordan from All Saints Church accompany the children and demonstrate British Values through tolerance of other faiths and beliefs. Click here to see our pupils enjoying their R.E learning.
