Nursery have been thinking about food that is good for us, and food that we should only have as a special treat! We made a fruit jelly and sorted foods into healthy and unhealthy ones!
Reception are enjoying being back in school practising our shapes, reading and sounds… we are nearly ready for Year 1
In Year 1, we were very excited to have a first go on our new slack line. Look at our amazing balancing skills!

Wow, look at our radish in Year 3! We planted them and looked after them ourselves.
Year 4 have been having fun making rocky road as part of their topic “Chocolate”.
We measured and mixed and the best bit was taking it home at the end!
Year 5 have been looking at probability. Mr Swann is using his ties to show probability of choosing a colour tie!
Year 6 have been busy looking at their positive traits and what assets they could bring to their new schools in September. They all wrote a letter to their Head Teacher of their new Comprehensive.
Well done to all the children who took part in Cycling Proficiency and passed. Make sure you stay safe on the road.
