An exciting time was had by Y6 on their residential this year as they took up the challenges of coasteering, surfing, sea kayaking and the Anglesey weather! Toasting marshmallows on the beach (in the rain at one point) and building sandcastles (as the tide came in) all added to the sense of adventure.
The curtain rose for the 2015 Year 6 performance of Aladdin on Friday night to a full house. The cast dances, sang and acted their way through the story of Aladdin. Well done to all the staff and children who were involved in creating this memorable evening. Click here for more
