  • FS2 Luau Fun

    Thank you to everyone who attended our FS2 leavers celebration and joined us in the fun luau activities and celebrations as we said farewell to our FS2 children as they prepare for their time in Year One.  We have loved teaching them this year and have taught many of them for two years as they have been with us through FS1 as well so we will truly miss teaching them next year but know they will have a fantastic year in Year One.  Good luck!!


  • It’s almost time to say goodbye to our FS2 children!




     FS2 Reminder to Parents

    We’re so sad to see them go but we know they will be great in Year One so we want to send them off in style with a celebratory party and can’t wait for you to join us.  FS2 parents, don’t miss out on joining your child for their last ever Foundation Stage parent event!

  • Parent Consultations

    Thank you to everyone who attended the parent consultation evening on Thursday, it was lovely to see so many of you and thank you for all the lovely feedback.  It was also great to meet so many of our new starters on Thursday morning.  Our children moving into FS2 in September had a lovely time meeting all their new friends and our current FS2 children moving into Y1 had a fantastic time with their new teacher, Miss Henshaw, while our new friends were visiting us.  What a lovely day all round!

  • FS2 Moving Up Event

    If your child is in FS2, you are invited to join us to celebrate the end of their time in Foundation Stage before they move on to Y1 in September.  We will be hosting a ‘moving up’ event on the afternoon of Tuesday 18th July and would love you to join us.  Your child will shortly be bringing home an invitation to give you all the times and details.

  • Parent Consultations

    Just a reminder that we are holding parent consultations from 3:30pm onwards on Thursday 13th July where you will have the opportunity to meet your child’s new teacher for September.

    If your child is currently in FS2 and moving into Y1 their teacher will be Miss Henshaw.

    If your child is currently in FS1 and moving into FS2 their teachers will continue to be Miss Cowlishaw and Miss Claxton but they will also be joined by Mr Precious next year.

    If your child is currently in FS1 and remaining in FS1 their teachers will also continue to be Miss Cowlishaw and Miss Claxton but they will also be joined by Mr Precious next year.

    If you have not yet had chance to meet any of the teachers, we look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening.

  • Transition

    Our FS2 children who will be moving up to Y1 in September will be spending some time with their new teacher, Miss Henshaw, on Thursday morning.  FS1 children who will be moving into FS2 or those remaining as FS1 will stay in the Foundation Unit as usual and will be joined by their new friends who will be starting school in both FS1 and FS2 in September.  This should be a lovely morning, welcoming and meeting new friends.  We will let you know how the morning goes 🙂

  • What a week!
  • It’s that time of year…

    Your child will soon be bringing their end of year report home!  Along with their report you will receive a letter to tell you who your child’s class teacher will be next year if they are staying in our school.  Children moving into FS2 will also receive an additional envelope with information re. FS2 and those continuing in FS1 will receive an additional envelope with information re. FS1.  Please note, we will only be running a morning FS1 session next year, as the letter will explain.

    We hope you will enjoy reading your child’s report and learning about the progress they have made this year and that you will like the photos we have included to give you a snapshot of your child enjoying learning at school.

    If you have anything you would like to discuss regarding your child’s report, please note there will be a parent consultation evening next week after school on Thursday 13th July.  This will be a drop in event held in the school hall for all classes.

  • Story Time

    We are holding our Foundation Stage story time sessions again next week.  Your child will be bringing a letter home today telling you all the details.  We hope lots of you will be able to join us.  See you on Tuesday 4th July 🙂
