Transition Help for Year 6

Year 6 from Mrs Ethelston's Primary Uplyme and St. Andrew's Primary Chardstock met today with Rev. Kate and Rev. Cate to talk about transition to secondary school.  They shared what they were looking forward to and how they could overcome any difficulties or worries they have.  

Oliver Twist

St. Andrew's Primary was transformed into Victorian London when a theatre company visited the school.  M&M Theatrical Productions presented Oliver Twist to children from the school who were also joined by children from Mrs Ethelston's Primary Uplyme.  The children were enthralled as the story unfolded and enjoyed the familiar songs.  Click the heading to see more photographs.
