Cookery

Recently some Parents took part in a cookery programme held within the school. The parents made some beautiful butternut squash soup and tasty brown bread, Chicken Risotto, Scones and lots more mouth-watering dishes. They even had time to make some very tasty Apple Crumble too. Thanks to the parents for coming in. Well done to all involved. We will be running a Cookery course named ‘Healthy Food Made Easy’ in January. If you are interested in this course, please contact me on 0862287167 or you’ll find me in the school!

Our Trip to Microsoft

Our Trip to Microsoft

5th class went on a trip to Microsoft. Here are some of our recounts.   On Friday the 21st of September half of my class went to Microsoft to learn coding. We took a bus there.

The American flag was in the lake. Then, we did some...
