We had a wonderful time hosting our friends from the local care home – tea, coffee and cake whilst listening to our beautiful school choir. Children then shared their learning and our guests reminisced about their school days, sharing their memories of school life. We look forward to seeing them again soon when they will join us for a school lunch!
Class 5 dissected lilies to find and identify the sexual reproductive parts. We then created artwork from the different pieces for our display!

Year 3 are learning so many interesting facts about the Romans… Did you know soldiers had to stay in the army for 25 years?! Did you know they had to walk 20 Roman miles in 5 hours with 7 bags on their backs?! They had so much learning to share and were very proud of their work. Keep your enthusiasm for your project going!
EYC children have had so much fun working through their ’50 things to do before we’re 11¾’. They’ve been cloud spotting, dancing in the rain and making daisy chains!
Class 3 had a fantastic day out at Wroxeter Roman City. We looked inside a replica town house and then learned more about the daily life of Romans from the 2000 year old ruins of the bath house.
Where has our allotment gone?! So many thanks to an amazing team from Capital One UK who enthusiastically razed our existing allotment with rotting beds, ready for our children to plan and help rebuild a new model.
EYC children and staff had a fabulous time using their imagination to pretend to go to the seaside.
We went on a train, visited the aquarium, built sandcastles on the beach, watched a puppet show and went on a round-a-bout. To finish our amazing trip we had an ice cream (even the teachers), yum, yum.
Class 3 have thoroughly enjoyed their Roman hook days. We have relaxed in a foot spa, made coil pots, crushed grapes to make wine, decorated shields and made Roman busts!
Class 5 have been making statues of Greek gods as an introduction to our new Project!
Class 3 had an amazing afternoon at the New Arts Exchange looking at Moroccan artist, Hassan Hajjaj’s portraits. After learning about his ideas and style of art work, Class 3 were inspired to create their own self portraits.
Today we held another amazing Always Award for the children who consistently behave well in school. This half-term the reward was a skipping workshop and it was incredible to see just how many skills the children could showcase at the end of the day! Lots of ropes were purchased at the end of the day so the children can keep skipping!
Our Top 50 Reads library was open today, with many of our children choosing a wonderful book to read over the Easter holidays. The library will be open every week next term for children to bring back books and choose new titles. It was lovely to see how excited they were about the books!
