Welcome back to a new school year!


HRH Queen Elizabeth II

We are saddened by the news of the death of the Queen. We have fond memories of sharing the jubilee celebrations and Owl Class received a letter from her just the other day thanking the children for letters and well wishes they had sent her at that time.

The Queen has set an extraordinary example to us all with her service and strong faith. We will pay tribute to her in collective worship and we send our deepest sympathies to her family.

 Welcome back to a new school year

It has been wonderful to see all our children back in school bright eyed and eager to learn. Our new Hedgehog children in Reception are settling into their new class beautifully and have enjoyed spending time outdoors, mixing new colours with paints and getting to know their peers.

Squirrel Class are straight into working hard. They have already produced some amazing self-portraits and are enjoying exploring their castle role play area.

Fox Class have been writing some shape poems about their feelings as they start a new school year and have been tackling some great maths problems. Owl class have enjoyed learning about Roman numerals this week and doing some tricky maths with bigger numbers.
