Welcome Back to School

Welcome Back to School

We have had some wonderful ‘Welcome Back to School’ assemblies this week. We have enjoyed welcoming back our existing pupils, who always seem to have grown so much over the summer break! And we all met our brand new staff and pupils who have joined us this year at Mary Rose, and wow they have settled so well into their classes! It was fun to sing and dance together will all our friends again. We also took time to reflect on the learning journey that we will all go on this year, and in our ‘Make your Mark’ assembly we started with a blank canvas and throughout the assembly every single pupil and staff member ‘made their mark’ on the canvas. It is exciting to consider all the new opportunities, new friends, new learning and fun times that we have ahead of us this year at school.
