Year 6 Residential Visit to Condover Hall

Last week Miss Allen and Mr Daintith took 16 Year 6 children on a 3 day residential visit to Condover Hall near Shrewsbury.  They had an amazing time….

“I enjoyed it loads and their food was luscious” Eliza

“I enjoyed hanging out with my friends” Safaa

“It was incredible, I had so much fun.  I hope more people will go next time.” Natasha

“The best thing was laser maze because you had to run or walk through the lasers without touching them”  Malaika

“Our instructor was really kind” Billal

“The best thing was the team challenges because we learnt how to communicate and encourage others”  Ridam

Coughs and Colds

It is getting to the time of year again when our children will be getting coughs and colds, but they should not miss out on their learning because of this.  As long as they have been given paracetamol and have a water bottle with them in school they should attend and be monitored by us in school.
