Thank you for inviting us to take part in the lovely event. The confidence in all children is absolutely amazing. I have really enjoyed taking part

We very much enjoyed the Book Publishing Party. The idea of the children walking up the red carpet was a brilliant idea. It made them feel very special, a great way to celebrate their work and for them to take pride in what they had done. Lovely they had time to read their stories to parent too.

Year Group Open Afternoons

Great idea to have this session. It makes many of the 'going home' conversations more relevant! Not only has it been great to see my son's work it is wonderful for it to be presented by him so that he has ownership of his work. Thank you for organising.

Very positive experience worthwhile for both parent and pupil.

Lovely to see where the children work and fantastic to see such great progress made since the start of the school term.

I wouldn't have known quite as well where my child's weaknesses were without this opportunity to view his work and question him whilst there. It has been very informative and will enable us to help him at home.
