Have a great half term holiday. See you on Monday 31st October
Wow! What a fantastic day. A huge thank you to Lucien, Georges, Felicity, Emil, Otobong, Emanuela, Wilfred and Fideles & Mary Idemudia who came in today to teach the children how to drum and sing and dance African style and talk to them about life in Nigeria. The children have learned lots about the Nigerian culture today and made some beautiful art work.
