Goodbye Mr McKenna

Today we held a special assembly to say goodbye to the chairman of our governors, Peter McKenna.

Visit To Tamworth Castle

This week, as part of our topic on Castles, Reception classes visited Tamworth Castle.

They toured the castle to find out how it was different to our homes, and found out about the food people would have eaten.
They got to dress up in medieval clothes and try some armour and weapons, some children even ended up in the pillory and the stocks!
They also listened to a story about a mouse called Bryce, and had to look for mice around the castle.
