On Sunday April 23rd we had a very exciting visit from a helicopter to the school. Even though it wasn't a school day, lots of people came to see the helicopter land in the field and to have a closer look. We then got to hear all about the trip round the Northern Hemisphere. It was great (awesome in the children's words!) that we got the chance to see this, so thank you to everyone who made it possible.
