|HELLO!||Welcome to our website. It's full of useful information about the life and activities of Southville Primary School.|
Headteacher's Blog - What is happening in school?
Gardening and Cooking
Lots of growing and cooking has been taking place across the school. The children have been inventing new recipes using the produce harvested from our school garden. Keep up the great work!
Our Year 5 and 6 classes were visited by two local civil servants. Mr Wakeford and Ms Binns provided the children with an informative presentation and a very engaging activity.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the visit and asked our visitors some very in depth questions about their roles, the election process and about the individual politicians.
SVP would like to thank Rebecca and Tyler for coming in.
