Year 4 French

Over the past few weeks, Year 4 have been learning names of fruit and vegetables.

They really enjoyed the role-plays we did in class where they had to pretend they were at a street market in France and had to sell and buy fruit and vegetables.

Well done, Year 4!

Tatton Park

Last Friday, year five visited Tatton Park to learn more about the life of an evacuee during WWII. Poor Aunt Mary got a bit of a surprise when they arrived as she was only expecting three to five evacuees. Everyone had a great day and learnt a lot about life in WWII.

Thank you to all of the adults who came with us on our trip!
