There were some fantastic shots played as well as brilliant teamwork and determination. Well done Kahlan, Chriselda, Olivier and Finleigh.
On Tuesday 19th November, Miss Beaumont took 10 selected KS2 pupils to trampoline at CJCA. These children were chosen for their consistently positive behaviour in PE and for always trying their best.
