'A bear to remember'

 I had great pleasure in making the bears for our Year 6 2021 gifts.

I know they have been under wraps for several months and it was such a lovely

experience to see them finally given to all pupils on Wednesday 21st July 2021.


I would like to thank the PTA for their contribution towards the bears all made from old school uniforms.


They are now available to purchase, all I need is 1 cardigan or jumper, 1 skirt or trousers, 1 white polo shirt and I will 

provide the rest. 


If you are interested in buying one please contact me on my school email for further details.


A donation from each bear will be given to school.


Thank you
