We have high hopes for all our pupils and it is important to us that children enjoy the time they spend here. Our aim is to provide a positive, nurturing learning environment for all children to enable them to achieve their potential and be the best that they can be.

Robinwood   Robinwood

Last week, many of the Year 4 children went on a two night residential visit to Robinwood Activity Centre where they took part in a range of challenging activities including bouldering, caving, climbing and trapeze - not to mention confronting their fear of piranhas! On the final evening, everyone joined together for a team challenge which was great fun. It was agreed that everyone had a brilliant time at Robinwood.

To launch their new topic of World War 2, Year 5 and 6 enjoyed a day of activities. They looked at what food was rationed, designed their own wartime menu and baked some delicious carrot cookies with Miss Brewster. In Mr Taylor’s activity they looked at evacuation and made a suitcase filled with items they would take with them. Miss Singleton led an art activity using watercolours and Mrs Noble taught the children about the Axis and Allied powers.

The children in Year 3 and 4 had a packed day learning about the Stone Age last week. They made woolly mammoths using milk bottles and crepe paper, they wrapped up and braved the cold to create Stone Age villages and they carried out research to answer a range of questions about our ancestors. The children can't wait to learn more about the Stone Age in their new topic work.

On Thursday 9th January, some children from across Key Stage 2 attended Young Voices and the atmosphere was absolutely electric! The whole performance with dancers and singers along with the incredible 5000+ children in the Young Voices Choir was amazing! It was great to see so many parents coming along too. All the children were impeccably behaved and were a real credit to our school. Well done to everyone for putting in the effort to learn the songs and dance moves.
