Year 5 opened the celebrations with a presentation and performance relating to their Ancient Civilisations topic. They sang two songs: one relating to their learning about Ancient Greece; the other linked to their French learning - a wonderful rendition of 'Vive le Vent'.
Laurence M - Many of the children in the school have taken part in the John Lewis competition linked to their new Christmas advert. We were thrilled to hear that Laure's entry was the winning submission to the Cambridge store. This means that Laure has won a Yamaha keyboard for the school!
