Year 1 and 2 children are thoroughly enjoying being heard read by the Year 6 reading ambassadors. They are becoming more confident at reading to someone new and answering some questions about their book. Keep it up everyone!

## Gymnastics

It was brilliant to see the Gymnastics competitions back at school. The children worked so hard in their PE lessons and clubs to be chosen to represent the school at the brilliant Tribe Centre.
