Our Tribute to the Queen - Sep 2022
We were very proud of all the children today. They have spent time throughout the week, making flowers as a tribute to Her Majesty the Queen.

We are now making a beautiful corridor display with the children’s flowers in order to show our respects and remember Her Majesty the Queen.
