Class 4 had a brilliant afternoon, with a visit from Nick Corston of STEAM Co. An inspiring introductory talk highlighted the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths, including such things as how 'cats eyes' were developed to light up the roads. Nick did a fantastic job at tying our topic of The Victorians in to this session by [...]
Wow! What an amazing Summer Fayre we have had this year. Parents, children, staff and of course our fantastic FROGs team came together to be part of an event that has raised more than £3,500 for our school. Thank you so much to everyone who came along and to all the local business who donated prizes for our Grand Prize [...]
Class 4 were looking very Greek yesterday when we all dressed up for a a history workshop day on Ancient Greece. It was a great opportunity to find out more about our topic from Phillipa, an expert, and to handle some replica artefacts. We made a range of objects from a pendent decorated with Athena's owl to Greek [...]
Class 2's entrance and cloakroom has just got brighter thanks to FROGS funding, resulting in more space to display some of the children's excellent work. Thank you very much! And what's also quite handy, is we've now got a spare blue board for Class 3's room, which just so happens to have a blue theme... Brilliant! In planning for FROGS' [...]

During the fete, the children showed their talents with an exceptional [...]
Class 4's new library make-over is finished! FROGS give each class £50 per term to spend on books, so in class 4 we've been building up a good selection of fiction and non-fiction titles, and thanks to FROGS providing us with some new shelving we now have a great library to display and enjoy our books!
The deadline for completion was 2.30pm on Monday, and each boat was given 2 attempts to race down the 3 metre trough - it was a very demanding task as although most of the boats were fine in the paddling pool, getting them to go straight for 3m was way harder! The results for the fastest boats were [...]
Last week Class 4 designed and built their own motor powered boats. There were some creative (and original!) ideas, and yesterday was the moment of truth when we raced the boats down a 3m trough... Today is the 'best design' competition...results to be announced soon... A massive thanks to all the paents who helped: Mick, Darrin, Steve, Matt, [...]
