John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’



Year 1 Story Time.

We all hope that you are well and keeping yourselves safe at home. One of the things that we are all missing is reading with you all. We have all been busy and are starting to upload videos of ourselves reading stories for you to listen to.


Take a look at some of the stories so far using the link below.


We'll keep uploading new stories as often as we can. Enjoy!
