Autumn Days in Paint

We have been painting some autumn trees to show the change in the seasons. We sketched our trees and then painted them carefully using different techniques. We will be displaying them at the Harvest Festival in a few weeks to show our family and friends.

Super September Singing

Our School Choir have certainly hit the right notes early in the school year! We are delighted with the way they are sounding. Thanks to Mr. Ormondroyd & Mr. Mitchell for their enthusiasm – it’s certainly rubbing off on to our terrific choral stars. We enjoyed a special guest soloist who popped in to see us after a hard day at Kirk Balk. Well done to everyone in our enormous choir! You sound wonderful.
