A message for Class 9!

Hi class 9!

I'm missing you all lots and lots and wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you all!
I am sure you will all be having lots of fun with your families and playing at home. I can't wait to see and hear about the amazing things you have all been up to soon. Keep smiling and don't forget to always have fun! 

Lots of love, Miss Dunn ☺️

Class 10 set up their role play area to reflect their interests. It helped them to understand and talk about what is happening.

Class 12

Class 12 goes to Space! We have really enjoyed finding the answers to our big questions about Space in Class 12! We have been very busy painting rockets, creating aliens, ordering planets and watching real Space videos!

We also went on a ‘moon walk’ in our outdoor classroom measuring the moon with our strides! It was so much fun!

Children in Need Day in Class 11

Class 9 

In class 9, we have been learning French with our new friend Bernard the Bear who visits us from Paris. We have been looking closely at where we live in the United Kingdom and how we would travel to another country like France. The children have been practising saying hello (Bonjour) and goodbye  (Au revoir) as well as introducing their names (Je m’appelle) to Bernard in French. We had lots of fun and the children continued to enjoy sharing their French with Bernard in the classroom.

Class 9

In Class 9, we have had so much fun exploring and learning in our Reception outdoor classroom. We have discussed the importance of team work both inside and outside the classroom and the children have quickly applied this by helping their friends. Class 9 have thoroughly enjoyed: climbing, exploring different ways of moving, playing instruments, finding mini beasts, finding signs of autumn and exploring with their friends and Miss Dunn and Mrs Gordon. We even found some conkers and got to experience opening a conker shell for the first time. We’re hoping we can find some more!


Class 12

In Class 12 we have had such an exciting time both in our indoor and in our outdoor classroom! From Autumn adventures to pirate ships we have had lots of fun. I can’t wait to see where our learning takes us next! Miss Coull

Class 12

I am delighted to say that the children in Class 12 have settled incredibly well after their transition to Reception. They are a lovely group and are very quickly picking up the new rules and routines. The children have started to build wonderful friendships in class and enjoy exploring the environment together. Mr Bear has made lots of new friends too!

Class 10

Sept 2019

The children have settled really well into Class 10 and are already making lots of new friends. They have been so brave and grown up coming into school and have coped really well with lunchtimes and very long, busy days !  They have picked up new routines very well and are loving playing and learning both in the classroom and outdoors.  We can already see that they and are very creative and imaginative and we’ve been particularly impressed with their independence and  tidying up skills so thank you very much for training them so well !!

Class 11 fun in the snow!


Today the children in Reception had their first Kidsafe session, the Kidsafe tutor, Ms Kyle, introduced herself and played some ‘getting to know you’ games with the children, including talking with the children about the ways they already keep themselves safe. We talked about the meaning of the word trust and played a trust game (ask your child about it!)

The children have loved the session and in particular the puppet KS. Sessions will be held in Reception every Tuesday for the next 5 weeks. At school we would welcome any comments you or your children have in relation to this session. 

Yours sincerely, Kidsafe Lead Tutor  (L Kyle)
