Great BerryPrimary Academy

A caring place to Learn and Grow

Year 1

We hope you had a great half term! 

The children have settled back into school really quickly and are impressing us with their hard work. We are looking forward to the Colchester Castle visit! We would like to thank all of the adults that offered to come with us to help. On this occasion, we already had enough adults that work within the school to come along, but we really appreciate your ongoing support.


The children will be able to come straight into class on the morning of the castle trip instead of waiting in the playground like they usually do.


We are looking forward to exploring the castle and building on our existing knowledge and understanding of how some people lived in the past.
