Visit To Chatsworth Farm

Friday, all the Reception children visited Chatsworth Farm, to support their work this term looking at “All Creatures Great and Small”. They met lots of lovely farm animals and learned about how to care for them. They also had great fun in the playground!

Their teachers were very proud of their excellent behaviour. A member of the public even commented on how sensible they were being. Well done FS2!


Mr Scott and all the staff wish all our families a peaceful and enjoyable holiday. We look forward to seeing all the children back in school on



YEAR 3 & 4

Year 3 & 4 will be having an immersion day for their new topic on Thursday 27th April and so would like to invite their parents into their classes from 2:30pm to join in with an art activity.


Easter Egg Raffle

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Easter Egg Raffle. We raised £158.24!

The two winners of the giant Easter eggs were Dima in Class 3 and Jalal in Class 11. Mr Daintith presented them both with their prizes in WOW assemblies this week. In addition to the 2 main winners there were 54 other prize winners.

Thank you to Mrs Ford for organising another great fundraising activity - you’re a STAR!

The children from Class 10 will be inviting their parents to an exhibition to demonstrate all the things they have learned about Vikings this term. It will be on Friday 28th April from 2.30-3.15pm. The children hope that all their parents will be able to come along, as they are looking forward to showing them all their hard work.

KS2 SATs are approaching so it is important that in the holidays children are practising maths at home by using websites like Speed Challenge, Hit the Button etc. They also need to read regularly to aid their comprehension and improve their vocabulary. They must also get a good night’s sleep - Year 6 should be in bed for 9pm.
