Chester Zoo

Class 6 had an amazing day last Friday when they visited Chester Zoo where the children were able to observe wild animals in their captive environment.  The weather was kind and after a picnic-lunch the children attended a workshop; learning about aspects of the Amazon Rainforest that link to their class topic. Before setting off for the return journey, a visit to the gift shop signalled the end of a fantastic day.

Rock and Bun

Is this the next new boy-band? Crucifix Souls made their debut appearance to a packed school hall in their bid to raise money for charity. All proceeds from the day were donated to Cancer Research UK and Barnsley Hospice. Thank-you, to everyone who donated buns and cakes for the sale; we still had plenty to sell at the end of the day. The event was a huge success raising a total of £403.00.

Well done boys!

Weather update

We hope you are all safe and warm and have been enjoying some fun in the snow. Due to the high winds, low temperatures and the possibility of more snow over night we will again make the decision whether to open by 7am in the morning.

Thank you once again for your continued support.
