Class 2’s Wild Picnic!

In Class 2 we have all been given a miniature wooden person and today we made a picnic for them. As it rained we improvised with some Astroturf and umbrellas. We made mini pizzas and Keri cooked them for us. We will keep you up to date with our next exciting adventure!

Almost our final newsletter…

Hi... I thought I'd give you an update on what’s happening in school at the moment, the things taking place over the summer and also a headline on some changes for September.  My video explains it all, but I thought I’d give an overview here too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylzDYwT3XKg&t=2s The school value this half-term is that of being ambitious.  Sometimes it really [...]

Update… and survey No.2…

By now, most of you will have heard the latest updates from the UK Government regarding primary school provision for the final weeks of the summer term.  In case you missed it, here is the key extract from the statement made by Gavin Williamson, Secretary of State for Education: “We continue to follow the best scientific advice and believe that [...]

This week’s update… AND SURVEY PLEASE>

Dear parent / Guardian We hope that you and your families are keeping well through these difficult times. Since my last blog, I have been working through the government guidance relating to the possible partial reopening of schools from 1st June.  The guidance is still unfolding and we are working extremely hard to consider all the questions it presents and trying [...]

19th April update…

Here's a video - please click to watch and listen. We're listening to everyone and we're adapting our offer to suit as many of our families and children as we can.

Happy Easter – new start…

Happy Easter everyone! I've shared another video for you, explaining our new term and the new way we're going to be working for the foreseeable future.  You can access it by clicking this link.  There are two videos there actually, with the other being of the children singing the Spring Chicken song - that's a fun one!  I wonder if [...]

Prepping for Week 2…

Dear parents, Well done for managing a week's worth of learning at home. I bet it's had its challenges, but also some fun bits too - I have four boys of my own at home, so I know only too well how hard it can be! We're about to head into the school's 'Easter Break,' but it's not going to [...]

Home learning ideas…

AKA, musing of a headteacher. We’re sending out ideas and packs today… And we’ll be populating web pages… But we thought we could host a place where people could post ideas? I'm sure Pinterest and Facebook will help here too, but it's a thought; a possible helpful page? It's also un-moderated.  Please be thoughtful of the audience! Link here, for [...]

Our School Council… on food.

Our School Council meetings take place every month so that I can share my thoughts and make some decisions alongside representatives from every class.  They, in turn, read minutes back to the rest of their class and discuss the items we spoke about. For a while now, some of the year 6 children have made comments about portion sizes being [...]

Inspired Playgrounds…

Most children were involved in lots of activity and games on our new playground markings today. Apart from being Martha's Dad, Ben Cox is the lead coach for 'Inspired Playgrounds' and he came in to help us all with an additional free session. Ben led the children in some playground sessions, helped explain how to use the markings to our [...]
