What a busy start to 2017 we have had so far.

Towards the end of last year children from Year 3 went along to Carlisle baths to work towards their swimming certificates. Whilst they were swimming, the Year 4’s were taken to Chatsworth Tennis Club for some lessons with Becky which the children thoroughly enjoyed.

Children in Year 5 and 6 have been going to tennis lessons at Chatsworth Tennis club this term. Sessions are run by Becky who the children get on great with.
