Children In Need 2019

Remembrance Day 2019

We have been learning about why we wear poppies on Remembrance Day.

We created a poppy to wear and decorated a poppy biscuit.

Spooky Story Session 2019

Mr Richardson read the story of 'Meg and Mog' to the Nursery children and all of their grown ups.

Mrs Cole acted out the story and the children joined in with some spooky songs.

It was a fabulous event with wonderful parental support.

Our 'Friends of Dalton' organised 'Spooky Discos' to raise money to buy more high quality books for our school.

We all had a fantastic time.
