We enjoyed ourselves but we were tired we had lovely views as we walked, ate popcorn, bacon sandwiches and drank a glass of wine. We raised money for Rowcroft Hospice
Jubilee Cream tea
Co-ordin8 students celebrated the Jubilee by putting on a cream tea. We did loads of baking and decorating the hall. Some students came in early and helped out and made sandwiches and set the tables. We had lots of visitors and all had a good time.

For 3 weeks in August we did different things; we wrote a story and made an animated film, we tried new crafts, went on outings to the museums, the beach hut and to darts. We also had fun doing Mini Olympics and archery( we have all done really well at archery), but best of all was a pampering day.
