    Cricket games

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Due to the high winds we were kept inside for cricket. We spent some time completing some catching and then played some games throwing down the stumps. Being restricted indoors was not a problem and the games would prove to be good fun and high scoring. We managed to hit the stumps a few times. Our fielding is coming on nicely.

    Emailing safety

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today the children were emailed by some unscrupulous characters on purple mash who were after personal information. Luckily the children were able to notice that these emails were dodgy and did not get involved with them. It was a great safe way to highlight internet safety and ensuring that all our details are kept private. Well done year 3
