Spring Term 1

The school has hit the ground running with the start of spring term 1. It may not feel much like spring outside but the children have been busy attending sports fixtures at QEGS this month.

On Wednesday 10th January the  year 5 pupils attended a Change4Life Champions Conference at The Arc, Matlock.  As a result of this the two pupils will be delivering a new active club on Monday, Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes to a small group with support from Mrs Bromhead.
