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 [...]
Hello everyone! We hope you are all keeping safe and well. Here's what our wonderful children got up to last week... bird feeders, towers, dream houses, home-made slime, phonics, lava lamps, obstacle courses, enough baking to feed the 5000, egg incubating, origami, kid sitting (the baby goat kind), story writing, beautiful artwork... the list is endless! Thank you for all [...]
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. It’s been lovely to see what children and families have been doing, and so we're fully embracing the Google Classroom environment and making use of it as fully [...]
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 [...]

Here is a tiny snapshot of our last few days... P.S. That last picture is mud, promise!!
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 [...]
We reminded ourselves what coordinates were in our Booster Session this morning, but also how they develop through the years at school so that, by the time that children get to year 6, we're working out complex 4-figure coordinates in all four quadrants! Our whiteboard scribbles and worksheets mean almost nothing unless you were part of the session itself or [...]
