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.

Please do not park in the drop off zone […]

It has been lovely to hear Tim’s responses and to hear about how passionate he is about the constituency he has represented.

European Languages Day

Each year we celebrate European Languages Day. Each class looks at a different country and explores the languages, culture and geography.  We have had a super time!  Many classes like to try and explore a new country, this year Belgium was the choice of Year 6.
