Holy Island Y6

Here is a selection of photographs from our residential visit to Holy Island.   We enjoyed visits to the Castle and Priory, walks around the Island, creating stone sculptures, playing on the beach and rolling down the sand dunes, sharing dormitories with friends, dancing at the disco and spending money in the local shops!

We also spent time together, reflecting on our time at primary school and shared some of our thoughts and worries about the forthcoming move to secondary school.

The children had a fantastic time and were a credit to our school.

Many thanks to Mrs Wright and very well done to Year 6!
