  • Alien arrival?

    Published 14/01/19, by Jenny Townely

    What on Earth has happened here?

    On our first day back to school we were absolutely amazed to find a space craft had crashed into our outside area! There was green slime all over the playground, nuts and bolts scattered, and PANTS hanging from the tree.

    We went to investigate the evidence and found a letter that had been written by an alien! 

    What a shocking start to the term... hopefully if we learn enough about Space and the planets, the alien will find his way back home again!

  • Superhero Fantastic Finish

    Published 19/11/18, by Jenny Townely

    What a 'Super' afternoon!

    We had an amazing afternoon celebrating the WOW starter for our new topic HEROES!

    We couldn't believe how many families attended and helped to make the afternoon such a success which was thoroughly enjoyed by all of our children and staff.

    Whilst Spiderman played on the big screen, we got busy with a whole host of Superhero crafts. There were shields, masks, cuffs, capes, some wonderful puppets and some colouring in! What a great way to get our children fired up for our new topic, Thanks so much for coming!

    Den building extravaganza!!

    What do you do if you need a place to camp out but don't have tent? Build a den!!

    The Year 1 children were given different materials alongside rope, string and pegs today and asked to create their own dens to provide a stimulus for our writing topic this week. What a brilliant job they did, I'm sure you'll agree. We can't wait to read the recounts that will follow.

    Well done to all the children for coming into school dressed as a pirate. We have had a great day hunting for treasure around the school and we even had a visit from the mysterious Pirate Pete.

    A visit from a spider in year 1 today! To get the children's imaginations going we had a mystery visitor who left behind a web of clues. This will help to inspire your children's writing. We can't wait to read their stories at the end of the week.

    Welcome to Maple class!

    Welcome back, we hope that you have all had a lovely summer and are ready for the new school year.

    It was lovely to see all the children looking smart in their new school uniforms and we have had a very positive start to the year.

    Thank you for all the lovely homework that we have had in so far. We are hoping to make a nice display of all the children's work, so please send it in as soon as possible.

    We look forward to getting to know all of the parents so that we can work together in partnership to best support the children.

  • Aspirations Week

    Published 30/06/17, by Admin

    Year 1 have really enjoyed aspiration week and all the activities that they have been doing. The teachers have really loved hearing all about the children's dreams for the future. We had some amazing and imaginative costumes on dress up day! Pictured are Maple class in their costumes. The children also loved the assembly led by Action Jackson - we certainly will always 'dream, believe, achieve'!

    Thank you to all the parents of children in Year 1 for being so supportive with everything this week.
