    Summer 1: Wonderful Work

    King Charles III Coronation celebrations

    Gold Circle Autumn Term

    Children were chosen to go into the gold circle for showing respect and good relationships. They visited Darlaston library and listened to a story read by the librarian. They decorated a bauble which is now on display in the library. 

    Gold Circle Spring Term

    Children were chosen for the gold circle for showing resilience and responsibility.

    They had an Easter themed afternoon tea on the library bus where they ate hot cross buns and rice crispy nests. They also decorated bunny biscuits and made a decoration.

    Year 1 worked with artist Darrell Wakelam to create large London Landmarks
