Heritage Centre Writing Competition
Wendy Cartwright from the Knutsford Heritage Centre came into school to talk to the Juniors in assembly on Tuesday this week.
She spoke to the children about what services the Heritage Centre can provide as well as about numerous famous names related to Knutsford, such as King Canute, Highwayman Higgins and Mrs Gaskell. All the children were highly enthusiastic about what she had to say and she was very impressed with their knowledge of their local area.
She also reminded the children about the “Write A Story For Knutsford” competition that we included in the newsletter two weeks ago. All entries must be handed into our school office by Thursday, 18th October – when Wendy will return to school to collect them.
