Congratulations to all of the children and staff who created this year’s 3mx3m outdoor garden at the Shrewsbury Flower Show. We were delighted to be awarded first place, ‘Best School Show Garden 2018’. Thank you to Miss Carter who organised the construction of the garden and thank you to the children who helped build the final garden in Shrewsbury Quarry Park.

Different letters are sent to children depending on year group.

RECORDERS TUITION

Recorder lessons started today for all KS2 pupils.  Thank you to those parents who have already returned their form and payment.  Please could those who have not yet replied please send slips to the office. The children were issued with their book and recorder. They have been asked to sellotape/stick their name to the bottom of the recorder so that it doesn’t get mixed up with other children’s recorders. Please could they take the CD out of the book and keep it at home so that it doesn’t get lost. They will need their recorder and book every Friday. Thank you.
