Star Writer Awards

Every half term each class teacher chooses a child for our 'Star Writer Awards'. Our children produce some absolutely incredible writing and we feel that they deserve this recognition, although it is always very hard to choose as every single child works so hard! 


A huge well done to every child who receives the award.

"Teach a child to read, and keep that child reading, and we will change everything.
And I mean everything."
