Macmillan Cake Sale

Friday, 29 September 2017

Who can resist cakes and coffee on a Friday? Tasty treats were on sale in the canteen at Hilldene Primary today to raise money for  Macmillan's biggest fundraising event. A range of delicious homemade delights (which would make even Paul Hollywood smile) were available to buy, with the proceeds going to a very worthy cause. 

Thank you to the staff for organising the event and to everyone for their generosity and support.

Nursery 2nd Intake

All of our Nursery children have now started and we are very pleased with how they are settling into the Nursery routine.

We have been teaching them to tidy up after they have played with the toys using our "tidy up song". The weather has been lovely so we have spent a lot of time in the garden.
