Reasons to be cheerful page!

smileyReasons to be cheerful!smiley

At this difficult time we would like to spread a little happiness, so we have decided to create a "Reasons to be Cheerful" page. We would like to encourage children to send in photos and or videos of things that they are doing (poems, jokes, songs, playing, laughing, dancing, writing etc) so that we can post these on our website, Facebook and Twitter. Let's share and celebrate our wonderful children at Luddenham Primary school. Please email your Reasons to be Cheerful to


Hello Luddenham, please find a heartfelt message from all the staff who miss you greatly! Keep positive and keep safe and hopefully we will see you all soon!
