Today, Year 1 put their learning on Christianity this year into action. They looked at important features and religious artefacts at St George’s. Thank you for warmly welcoming our pupils.


Years 1, 2 and 3 all visiting the local St George’s Church throughout the day today. We are looking forward to visits to other places of worship as soon as we can - the others are a bit too long to walk to!
