The School Council worked really hard to organise Global Week for the school.
We started the week introducing the school to a global theme. KS1 were looking at similarities and differences and KS2 were focussed on being a member of the Global Village.
We also organised a Highland Games and a Fashion Show. Sadly our language games were rained off!
Here are some pictures of what we got up to!
