  Easter Service A huge well done to all of our children for taking part in our Easter church service. For lots of our younger children, it was the first church service that they've ever done in front of parents and families. And yet children from Reception to Year 6 all stood up and joined in - how fantastic! Well done to Giraffes class for leading the service. I'm sorry that I didn't manage to snap a photo of you but you did a great job.    A huge thank you to all who joined us. It feels fantastic to be able to gather together again.
