Week 2 at Powburn

This week has seen our remaining classes have our end of year values visit to Powburn Scout Centre. There was also a very special visit from the leaders to Greenfields for our Reception children too.

The children have had a fabulous time. An enormous thank you to the Powburn staff for making each visit so enjoyable!
