The power to change lives

I know, like me, you will have been outraged and saddened by what has been happening in Ukraine over the past few weeks. It is hard to believe that in 2022 such a situation can arise. I am pleased that on Friday last week we did our bit to fund raise for the Comic relief fund. The powerful message for this year’s Red Nose Day is whatever we do, no matter how small,...

What a busy week!

After missing out in 2021, Year 6 completed 2022 KS2 Mock SATS week in style. Thank you to everyone for making this such as huge success, especially Mrs McMullen who masterminds the complex operation. 👏 I know this is another key step in making sure our children are ready for their tests in May. Having missed so much time in school over the past two years due to...

Adding the love into learning

It certainly has been a seamless start to the new half term with every year group picking up where they left off in terms of high quality and interesting learning experiences - our children are so lucky to be in classes where staff spend so much time ensuring that every child loves learning.

Wellbeing week 2022 🙂

Celebrating the Year 6 journey

Last Monday we shared with Year 6 a 'virtual' presentation in place of the annual Year 6 dinner which we would usually hold, when Year 6 children come with their parents to celebrate the beginning of their journey through Year 6. Sadly, due to Covid we have been unable to have such a large gathering of people in school and so found a way to do this remotely....

Inspirational 🌟😀

When children can't wait to talk to you about what they have been learning you know they have been inspired by the activities taking place in their classes.

Last week I was told all about an earthquake that had affected the annex building and caused disruption for Mrs Goodlad when she was marking after school. Year 4's theme is 'Natural Disasters - Would YOU Survive?'...

'Safe as Houses'

Keeping one another safe is so important at the moment as we continue to live with coronavirus, so it couldn't be more apt that last week was the annual launch of our "Safe as Houses' initiative. This year's focus is on safe relationships and what they look like, especially within school. Who is it that you should trust and how do you know? So much work goes on in classrooms...
