NSPCC Y4, 5 & 6

Today, we were visited by the NSPCC and learnt about speaking out of something was bothering us.  We heard about Childline: how to call them and what kind of help we could get from them.  You may notice that we are wearing green instead of our usual uniform - this is because we are raising money for this important charity.
