March was a busy month at Walton Priory Middle School – the Eclipse was celebrated at school with an ‘Eclipse Breakfast’ organised by Miss Fiona Lucas (SENCo). Parents and children were invited in to school at 7.30am to have breakfast and watch the eclipse. The event was very well attended and enjoyed by children, parents and staff.
The same day was also ‘Book Character Day’. Children were invited to dress up as a book character. The day culminated in a character parade during the afternoon organised by Mrs Heather Ward (Literacy Co-ordinator).
Earlier on in the month Walton’s Year 8 pupils enjoyed a visit to London for two days. They went on the London Eye, a river boat cruise, museum visits and saw a performance of ‘Matilda’ at the theatre.
