Warm welcome to Newgate class


Firstly a big warm welcome to Newgate class, our very first class at St Martin's Academy. It was wonderful to see so many of you yesterday at the first induction day for our new starters.

The children's behaviour was outstanding. It was an absolute pleasure to get to know each and every one of them.

We began our fun-filled morning by creating play-doh creepy crawlies to learn about different mini-beasts and painted beautiful pictures of ourselves. We also made the most of the puppets as we read stories in the reading area.
