Year 3 trip to Walton Firs Activity Centre

As an end of term treat, Year 3 took a trip to Walton Firs activity centre. After a disjointed year of lockdowns during the pandemic, it was wonderful for the class to come together and take part in team building activities and spend the day in the sunshine.

It was a lovely way to end the school year together as a group.
