Judaism assembly

Eric Cohen is leading a whole school assembly about Judaism tomorrow morning.  He is then working with Y2, Y4 and Y6 to deliver workshops about different aspects of the religion.  Y2 and Y6 are then set to visit the synagogue in Liverpool during their trip on Wednesday.  We hope that the children find the assembly and workshops interesting and that Y2 and Y6 have a great trip to Liverpool.  Parents and friends are welcome to attend the assembly on Tuesday which starts at 9.05am.

Mrs Tregilgas will be covering the office every day until the new School Business Manager starts.  We will update you as soon as we can about the new arrangements.
