Today, the children in class 4 have been planning our contribution to the assembly in church on Friday to celebrate 150 years of our school. We have decided to act out the school in past, present and future....with a few twists 😉 Therefore, the children may come home with requests of making things or bringing in costumes or props on [...]
Class 2 have been reading a book about disgusting sandwiches and this morning they made great efforts at making thier worst yet. Ingredients included, soil, sand, green jelly slime, feathers, first, dust, leaves etc.. and they made for terrible sarnies. The Badger in the story would have really liked them, but being asleep through the school day, Mr Thomas came [...]

We started our Science topic this afternoon - Plants! We started looking at 'wild plants' and tried to see how many we could name. We created a list of; dandelion, daisy, buttercup, clover, nettle, bramble, dog rose and ivy! We then got into pairs and searched the school grounds to see how many of our wild plants we could find!

Bright and certainly breezy this morning for our KS2 Volleyballers. Warm up on the playground, passing skills between partners and high over the net, and I left them learning the exciting dig with Denise Austin. Thanks for doing this Denise; dead excited children this morning!
