Diamond Jubilee

Welcome to our Diamond Jubilee celebration!

On Thursday 31st May, pupils, staff and visitors enjoyed a wonderful day of fun and games here at Macaulay Primary School.

Although the weather wasn’t at it’s best, it didn’t dampen our spirits as we all enjoyed an amazing indoor picnic, which featured an enormous (and delicious!) cake specially made for the day!

We hope you have had yourself a wonderful Diamond Jubilee!

All the best from everyone here at Macaulay Primary School.

Foundation Train Visit

Our topic this term has been about trains. We went to Cleethorpes on the train. We got on the train at Grimsby Town station and got off at Cleethorpes train station. We looked around the station and saw the ticket office were we bought our tickets. We saw lots of buildings along the way when we looked out of the window of the train. The train driver let Alens look in the Driver’s cab. We enjoyed our day out.
