Today some of our children made a start creating their chair for their bear using the designs they drew and labelled. WOW super impressed by their creative skills. 

Thank you for all the box and tube donations.

Enjoying ipad time with Mr Fawcett.


Lots of excitement exploring our pirate topic box. We even walked the plank!

Mr Millington had us practising our long distance running in his PE lesson. He was very proud of us all.

It was so lovely seeing so many of you at our Numeracy Stay and Play. We hope you found it useful.

We had a lovely afternoon planting sunflower seeds and learning about plants.

The maths stay and play session has been changed from Wednesday 24th April to Thursday 25th April 2-3pm.  Thanks.

Stay and Play: reading and story maps
