Lovely to have Orchard Lea Junior School visit yesterday, we are pleased to report that they survived the Stone Age!

Despite the soggy weather, Y3 had a great trip to the Westbury Manor Museum and Ashcroft Arts Centre today. They took part in a selection of hands on activities, designed and built their own Stone Age mini museum and handled artefacts. We were very proud of their behaviour and the way they represented the school.
