Healthy desserts in 5LR!

The Stars Are Coming Out For Christmas!

This year the children in year 5 and 6 performed a play called ‘The Stars Are Coming Out For Christmas’.  The choir and actors put a lot of effort into learning the lines of the play and the songs.  We were very impressed with the children’s efforts and behaviour throughout.  We would like to thank any parents or carers who came to watch and support the children, we hope you enjoyed it.
