Dear Parents and Carers

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a restful holiday. 

This term promises to be as exciting as ever and the children have been getting excited about their class themes for this term. We’re especially looking forward to welcoming our new hens on the 29th January! We have such a beautiful site, it’s wonderful to see more and more learning happening outdoors.

 Next Wednesday we will be having our next Have Your Say event at 9:00 in the community room. It’s really important to us to hear your views, so please come along.


School Opening Hours

Reminder to all parents/carers: 

  • School Gates open at 8.45am

Please bring your children in at 8:45. There are activities ready and waiting for them and it also gives you time to see what and how they’re doing before we close the gates at 9:00.

Children after 9am should enter the school via the Main Office and they will be marked as late.

Little Red Riding Hood left us some flowers

Little Red Riding Hood left Reception classes some flowers in the garden. We decided to keep them safe and explore still life drawing. The children remembered that flowers have petals, stems, and that they belong in a vase. Today, we will be making flowers out of clay!


Who Were the Victorians?

Riley Class are beginning to learn the answer to this question! The children began by creating some impressive work for their classroom during their immersion lesson. They made silhouettes, Victorian portraits and created a scene of London from the Victorian era. Year 4 will be visiting Keats House soon, to learn about the Victorian poet and see how people lived in London at that time.

Here’s How To Keep Your Body Healthy

Hepworth Class worked with Simon Lambert, an animation teacher, last half term and here is the film they produced together. The song being sung was written by Hepworth Class, and tells you what you need to eat to keep your body healthy and strong.

Well Done to our Learners of the Week!
