The children took time to reflect on their own lives and how fortunate we all are. Do ask your children about the Bethany Project and you can watch videos of their daily lives, school life and singing on you tube or on the bethany.org website.

WI Planting


On the last day of term we were very honoured to welcome Mark Menzies MP to unveil the beautiful planting beneath the village clock. This had been a joint project with Ribby with Wrea WI who had been successful in their grant application and used the money to work with the children. They purchased resources for school, painted pebbles with the children and planted up the beautiful display in suffragette colours. They also planned and led a joint walk in Field Day with all the WI dressing as suffragettes and the children dressing as people who have influenced change. Thank you to the WI for this wonderful experience and for Mark Menzies unveiling their wonderful work.

Young at Heart Afternoon Tea


What a wonderful afternoon we had when our Year 6's hosted a 'Young at heart' afternoon tea. They were excellent hosts and hostesses and all of our visitors thoroughly enjoyed chatting to them over a scone and cup of tea.
