  • Diwali and Children in Need

    It’s been a busy week as always, this week we have focussed our learning on the Hindu Festival of Light, Diwali.

    We have made Diva lamps.

    We have made Rangoli patterns.

    We have also made lots of Mehndi patterns on hand prints.

    Some of us have dressed in a traditional sari.

    To top our week off we have celebrated Children in Need in style; Pyjamas.

    Here are some other pictures from this week:

    Lots of love

  • A Fun-filled Week

    Its been a busy week full of laughter and fun.

    FS1 children have been superstars in their Phonics. We have been using our listening skills and practising rhythms and rhymes.
    We have also been drawing our families.


    F2 children have been practising using their phonetic skills to support their learning in Literacy.


    F2 children also won the ‘What’s in the Box’ treat. They won a pyjama afternoon and after, we had bedtime stories with our favourite people… You!

    Here are a few more photos from this week.


    It really has been a fantastic week.

  • FS2 Superstars!

    FS2 won the 100% homework ‘What’s In The Box’ competition on Friday and they will be receiving their prize tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday)!

    Each week, all the children in school are expected to complete their homework and reading every day. Any classes who have 100% completed homework (this means all children must complete all pieces including daily reading!) win a prize from the ‘What’s In The Box’ box which they get on a Tuesday afternoon.

    FS2 won a ‘TV and Doughnut’ treat which they will be enjoying on Tuesday afternoon and they are very excited!!

  • FS Reading

    Thank you to those of you who attended our first reading workshop. Remember there is another chance to attend on Wednesday 26th September when we will be running our second session. The session will be in the FS classroom so you can come straight in after collecting your child at the end of the day. We hope to see you all there 🙂

  • Our FS weather wizards have been out exploring the puddles and enjoying this heavy rain.

  • Reading Workshop

    Your child will have brought a letter home inviting you to join us at one of our Reading Workshop’s, which we are holding this Wednesday and next Wednesday. We hope you will be able to join us at one of the sessions and look forward to seeing you there 🙂

  • New call ducks join our FS farm.

  • FS Eco Stars ⭐️

    Our Foundation Stage Eco Councillors have been selected and they have already been super busy with Mr Wharton building a new outdoor train from recycled materials, which all our Foundation children will be able to enjoy. Great work from our Eco stars, who look fabulous in their new green sweatshirts. We are sure they will do us proud this year, representing Foundation Stage in the school’s Eco events throughout the year!

  • Our First Week in Foundation Stage

    A huge well done to all the children in Foundation Stage. Everyone has settled in so well and we have had a wonderful week! 😊

  • A huge welcome to Foundation Stage

    Welcome back to all our previous Foundation Stage friends who are back with us having moved to full days or still with us in FS1 for our morning session. It has been lovely to see all your smiling faces again!

    Also, a HUGE welcome to our new friends and their families. It is lovely to welcome so many new faces to our class and we have had a lot of fun today, settling in and getting to know each other.

    You may have noticed a new face in our Foundation Stage team…Miss Hargreaves has joined our team this year and will be our Foundation Stage Teacher, alongside Miss Cowlishaw our Foundation Stage Lead. Our lovely team is also made up of Miss Spyve and Mrs Saunders who many of you will already know, and Miss Davidson who will be giving additional support.

    We would just like to let you know that the children have been amazing today and have settled in really well and we look forward to the rest of the week getting to know them and an amazing year ahead.
