    Be sure to look at this webpage throughout the term to see updates for the animal welfare unit. 



    We were so lucky to be able to handle some of the artefacts at the Museum in the park. Some of these fab photographs that Michelle Grant took will be used in the new edition of the book. Did you ever think that you would be able to hold a mammoths tooth?

    Year 6 have been very lucky to have been supported by local historian, Mr Hobbs, as part of their โ€˜Be The Bestโ€™ unit this term. Mr Hobbs and Mrs Catt have led sessions about the local area, both past and present. They recently went on a brilliant trip to Museum in the Park, where they saw lots of amazing artefacts and took part in a trail around the site, learning even more about Stroud along the way! A special mention in particular to Mrs Catt for organising such enriching experiences โญ๏ธ๐Ÿ’™

    Year 6 working with Mr Hobbs. We helped him to proof read and edit his book!
