Dear Families


I hope you all had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and I trust you are all keeping well. 


Last night Boris Johnson announced that schools may open for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils from June 1st 2020.  I strongly suspect that his announcement may have raised many more questions than answers for you. 


We all want to get back to the new normal as soon as possible and as part of that we want children back in school.  We do not want to see classrooms empty for a day longer than they need to be. However, as I am sure you will all agree, the first priority has to be the safety of everyone in the school community.  Any plan to increase the number of pupils in schools has to be practicable and manageable and I am waiting to receive more information from government about what this means for us.


In the short-term, nothing has changed but, I promise you that I will provide further information in the coming days and weeks once I am able to do so.


Once again I want to thank you for your support and I promise to keep you as up to date with changes as soon as I possibly can.


Many thanks


Liz Measom

Everyone loves a baby! - 17.1.20


We had a very special 'Show and Tell' today...a baby brother! We had lots of questions about what babies do all day and how to look after them. He was very well behaved!



Computing - 15.1.20


This week Y1 have been investigating how to programme a Bee-bot. They were challenged with the task of making their Bee-bot robot follow a path. It started off quite easy with programming the Bee-bot to follow a straight path but it soon got trickier with zig zags, turns and boxes to follow. They did a great job showing lots of perseverance and teamwork as we worked on making the program better each time.

The Dance of the Dragon - January 2019


We have had lots of fun finding out about Chinese New Year. We have had a visit from a friendly dragon bringing good luck and wisdom. We watched a dragon dance and then had a go ourselves, we made the dragon wiggle and roar. 




The Chinese New Year of the Boar will be on 5th February 2019. The Chinese zodiac follows a twelve year cycle, each of the years being named after an animal. We have read the legend about how the animals were chosen, and have found out which animals we are. 


You can find your animal here:-

Christmas Show - December 2018


The Class 1 children worked really hard learning the songs and actions for their performances of A King is Born. They all did a great job and put on a fantastic show. Well done everybody!





Minibeast Hunting! - December 2018


We have been searching for minibeasts. Even though the weather was cold we managed to find lots of little creatures. 




We thought carefully about the habitats different insects liked best. We found lots of worms, slugs and snails in cold, damp, dark places under pots and in the vegetable garden. Woodlice and spiders were found in piles of dead leaves where it was cool and dark. We enjoyed carefully catching them and then looking closely at them using magnifying glasses.




We decided to make a habitat for a colony of woodlice. We worked in groups to create a habitat thinking about shelter, water and food. We kept them as classroom pets and investigated their favourite spots to hide. Later that week they were released back to the wild, having been given names and personalities by Class 1!
