Things to look forward to this week and next week

Treasure Hunt organised by our PTA.  Setting off from school at 2pm - see below for more information.


From the Headteacher

Welcome Back!

We had a great first week back!  It was very positive and productive.

Today Keystage 1 and Keystage 2 have taken part in our geography launch day. They have been tasting different foods, flying on an aeroplane (in the hall) and finding out about the country they will be studying this term.

I have had pork pie in Great Britain, Salmon bagels in Canada and fruit tasting in South Africa.  

Welcome to the Reception Children.

We had a lovely two half days with our reception children last week and today was their first full day and it has been amazing.  

I sat in the Reception class outside area to stay with the children in case they weren’t up to going in the big playground but I was soon left alone.  They were are very confident and enjoyed being outside with the other children.

Well done children!

Mrs Crewe

After School

Please remember to leave the playground as soon as possible so that our After School Club can come out and use the area especially now the evenings are getting shorter.

To ensure the safety of the children after school we ask that the children do not cycle bikes or scooters around the playground.
