It has been an emotional week – both excitement and happiness at reaching the summer holidays (which is hard to explain if you have never worked as a teacher – but its a bit like reaching the finish line after running a marathon) as well as a kind of wistful acceptance as we say goodbye […]

The picture shows some of our fabulous year 6 children independently raising money for charity by selling cupcakes – they were delicious! The weather is absolutely gorgeous, unless you are working or in a school… My favourite room this week is the ICT suite – the luxury of air conditioning… Still – I shouldn’t complain […]

I spent the day with year 6 today, at Blackland’s Farm Activity Centre. Mr Moore was kind enough to give me a lift early this morning and we arrived just as the first children were waking up from their tents. After 4 nights they actually slept last night, giving the staff a well earned rest […]

Its hard to imagine it not being sunny and warm at the moment. We have everything crossed that the weather will continue for the next week, for¬†our year 6 residential trip to Blacklands Farm! Its becoming a bit of a cliche – but it has been an incredibly busy week – its always a busy […]

Its hard to know what picture to use today – so much has been going on this week (I eventually chose a picture of our really helpful playtime buddies, who planned and organised¬†playtime games with the children who will be joining us in September): Year 5 and 6, as part of our transition arrangements to […]

We also hosted Rosaria Gracia who taught our year 5 children how to do some Samba dance moves. We also experienced some […]

Year 5 were so lucky with the weather and made the most of two days of glorious sunshine at Seven Sisters Country Park. They enjoyed mountain biking, den building and river walking. Not only did they explore different areas of the curriculum such as science, geography and PE but the children had the opportunity to […]

Both wet playtimes and lunches on the field this week in hot sunshine has certainly kept us guessing. It is lovely to see the children on the school field however. They always remind me of watching lambs seeing them run out onto the field for the first time each year! It was a good week […]

Meerkat Magic

This week was walk to school week and to help encourage the children to walk to school, we were visited by a giant walking meerkat. The children really enjoyed meeting him in the playground! Thank you to everyone for supporting our charity this half term: Asthma UK. We all did a special “purple walk” on […]
