Reception

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Reception. In Reception, we are always busy; exploring our fantastic classroom, our outside areas and our wonderful woods. Learning is fun, practical and play based. We love learning new things, asking fantastic questions and using what we know. We try to be outside as much as possible in all weathers.

Year 6 Leaver’s Service Video

Covid-19 has not stopped us giving the Year 6 children a sendoff.  It might not be quite what we are used to, but at least we were able to get together, celebrate what we have managed to achieve and to look forward to the future.  There may have been a couple of technological issues towards […]
