Newsletter 5th November 2021
The classrooms are filled with banter and excitement, as are our corridors and playgrounds. We are thrilled to have our students back at school. Our Year 1 students are exploring writing persuasive texts. They have begun to use their powers of persuasion to write convincing pieces to ensure the audience agrees with their point of view. The Year 2 students took the opportunitity to re connect with Father Gallacher this week as they explored ways they can connect to community and improve the wellbeing of others.
