Another busy week in the academy with children in Y1, 3, 4, and 5 working hard on their assessments this week. Y2 and Y6 have theirs next week. In Monday’s assembly, we looked at another of our Diamond Standards – Care – talking about how we can care for ourselves, our friends, our family and our community.  Later on in the week, Mr Long talked about Self-Discipline, as part of our Character Education, and everyone was interested to hear how he had got on with his exercises.
