We will meet for the first time on Wednesday 13th September at 12.25 pm, straight after morning lessons. There will be time for lunch afterwards. Do come along and have a go!
Ukulele club will start on Thursday 21st September at lunchtime. The club is open to all Year 5 and 6 children. Places will be filled on a first come first served basis. Letters have been sent out via email to parents with information on how to join.
