Bluebell Rocks!

It’s official, Bluebell rocks! We had our most recent concert of the Rock Steady bands today and they were brilliant.

We heard some excellent renditions of songs such as Stitches, Fight song and, the classic track, Baby Shark. Needless to say, the crowd went wild.

Children have been sent home a flyer if they want to sign up for next half term.
