    What did we spend the money on?

    We have spent money on new playground equipment.


    • I like the new play equipment because when you’re bored you can just go over and play on it. Ellie Year 4 


    •  It’s good because it’s fun and intense. Jack Year 3
    • It’s good because there’s the climbing frame and I can go to the end. Mitchell Year 2
    • I think it’s exciting because the spinning log is a challenge. Imogen Year 5
    • It’s fun because we used to just sit around and that was boring, now we can go on the new equipment.                Joshua Year 6

    We had a general election and the children voted for a whole school trip.
