CHRISTMAS CRAFTS - We have been very lucky to have Mrs Bowler to help us to make some beautiful Christmas table decorations. We have also written some instructions for how to make them. Thank you Mrs Bowler for your hard work preparing the items to make these gifts.
NEW MILLS FIRE SERVICE - The children were so excited to welcome the firefighters into school to tell them all about the Great Fire of London. We found out about the clothes they wear and the equipment they use. We all had a chance at using the fire hose (the driveway was very wet!!!) and sitting in the fire engine. Thank you to MR Goodwin and his colleagues from New Mills Fire Station for such an amazing experience.
