Welcome back to Willow! I hope you had a great break and are ready for the exciting adventure ahead! We are one half-term (and one adventure) into the school year now and the run up to Christmas is always busy.
We will soon begin practicing for Twas the Night Before Christmas, our Christmas Carol Concert, and the
Year 6s have only a short time before they are off to Ingleborough where they get to go caving, gorge scrambling, hiking, orienteering, country dancing, take part in the talent show (better get practicing!) and much more!
As well as all this we have our new adventure (River Rescue) to start and auditions for the end of year performance, The Sound of Music, will be coming soon!
Busy, Busy, Busy!
