Amended Term dates for 2019-2020

Green Activities

Our half term ‘Green’ learning culminated with Walk to School week. There was a chart in each classroom where the children placed a sticker when they had completed an active journey to school in a hope to complete Buster’s ‘Journey around Hertfordshire’.
On Tuesday 21st May it was ‘Happy Shoesday’ when children wore their most fabulous shoes to walk to school in. There was a walking bus running from Morrisons along the Alban Way, to gain an extra sticker for a ‘Park and Stride’.

Thank you to all parent volunteers and for all the donations of goods and spending money; the sale raised £195! The School Council will decide which charity will benefit from these funds.
