Year One and the Greedy Gator!

Base 8 took Maths outside this week to learn greater and less than.

They had a little help from the Greedy Gator to help them remember how to write the symbol.

You can help your children with greater than and less than at home by using this video link:

Welcome Back!

For the last few months, we have been using the school blogs to keep the children in touch with school and to let us know what they have been up to on lockdown or in school if they were able to return in June. We loved seeing everything the children were doing. It was great to keep up with the work the children were doing as well as seeing the fun they were having outdoors and in the kitchen (lots of lovely baking going on!) But most importantly, we hope it gave the children and the staff a continued link with school.

The last few weeks have been busy with new arrangements for opening school and the children have settled in well and are getting used to all the new arrangements.

Starting this week, we plan to start using the blogs again to keep up with what is going on in the classrooms and show you some of the learning that is taking place across the school.

Watch this space!

Welcome to Reception September 2020


We were able to have a few of our Reception Starters to visit two at a time last week.

Not everyone was able to come, but we hope that you will share this with your children so that they know a few faces when they start with us.

The boy at the end without a boy is named Jacob!

Thank you everyone and look forward to seeing you all again in September!

Reception and The Gruffalo

Reception have been reading The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. On Tuesday the children arrived at school to discover that the Gruffalo had sneaked into Reception and scattered flour everywhere. The children made some wanted posters to try to find him and then heard that he had been spotted in the woods. On Thursday they went into the woods and set a trap using a parachute, some food and some branches and leaves. When they came back later their plan had worked and they had caught him! The Gruffalo said that he was sorry for making a mess and the children gave him a cuddle. What a happy ending Reception.
