Today in FKS and KS1 we had a fantastic afternoon making the most of the sunshine.

We have taken part in lots of fun activities such as, paddling, playing in the sand, reading in the shade and lots, lots more.

This has really put us in the mood for our summer holidays now!

We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to you all as we really appreciate your support throughout the year. It really does make a huge difference.

We hope you have a wonderful summer and will miss teaching your children next year but know that they are now ready for their new school year!

Queen's 90th Celebrations

User Rating:  / 3

Reception had a fantastic time celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday last week! We prepared homemade scones to enjoy with jam and cream and even made cucumber sandwiches. We made sure we cut the crusts off just like the Queen does! There were some fantastic costumes and we thoroughly enjoyed partying at the PTA disco.

Super Sunflowers

User Rating:  / 1

This week Reception have been learning about the lifecycle of a sunflower. We wrote about how a sunflower grows and painted some beautiful sunflowers that were inspired by Vincent Van Gogh. In maths we investigated money and found out how to make amounts using different coins. We also worked on our fine motor control, using tweezers to see how many frogs we could pick up before the sand timer went down.

Don't forget that on Friday 13th May the school is celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday. Children can dress up in king or queen outfits for a £1 donation and also enjoy a PTA disco in the afternoon.

Reception Summer Term

User Rating:  / 1

Reception have all made a fantastic start to the Summer term! We kicked off our 'Living things' topic by going to look at our school pond. We were able to see some frogspawn and even some newts. At the start of the week we took advantage of the lovely weather and enjoyed using our outdoor areas. All the children also enjoyed their first school swimming lesson this week. Please can we remind parents that all items in swimming kits need to be named and boys should wear swimming shorts not trunks, many thanks.
