Jolly postman

Writing week was the book The Jolly Postman 


The Jolly postman was a real hit with the children they all loved doing role play and pretending to be a postman in Lower juniors. Infants enjoyed creating letters and posting them to their friends. Upper juniors went to the post office and sent letters in the post!

Harvest week

Before the half term holiday the primary department took part in a range of activities to raise money for our chosen charity Oxfam. The pupils raised a grand total of £118 and each class chose which gift items they would like to buy. The Foundation Stage chose honey bees, Infants chose a goat, Lower Juniors chose a shelter, seeds and safe water, Upper Juniors chose mother and baby care, a toilet and to feed a family. An amazing result! Thank you to everyone for your support.

UJ went to Cadbury World

Upper Juniors had a fab time at Cadbury world and learnt how chocolate was made from a bean! A cocoa bean!


We had lots of fun at Woodlands on Friday! We did lots of climbing and we made our own stick den. Everybody did canoeing and some children over come their fears and were super brave! We made a camp fire with two metal sticks there was a lot of smoke ever such a pong!  Every one had a super time and didn’t want to come home! See you next year Woodlands! Thanks for having us again!

Health week

This week was Health week, we listened to lots of interesting facts and about how to keep us healthy. We did a pedometer experiment all week to find out how many steps 

we did each day and if there was any difference with certain days. We had the mobility staff come in and have a chat with us about stranger danger and keeping safe. We also learnt alot about brushing our teeth and lots lots more!
