A big well done to all the acts this afternoon. We all had a great time and I know the judges had a really hard time deciding.

Nursery Assembly

The Nursery class performed their class assembly in front of their parents yesterday morning.  Later, the same morning, they performed again in front of the whole school.  These videos were taken during their second performance of the day.
