Latest Awards…

Reading Certificates October 2017

Congratulations to the following children for receiving their reading certificates for reading three or more times a week this half term. The biggest gift you can give your children is to get them reading and praise them when they choose to do so without being asked. If children are motivated to do something on their own they will do so much better in the long run. We thank you for all the help and support you give your children with Reading.

Year One Carnival Topic 

As part of Year One topic on Carnivals, the children took part in a Samba Drumming and Dance Workshop.

They  learnt how to play rhythms on different Brazilian instruments such as Agogos, Tamborins, Surdo and Djembe drums.

In the afternoon the children performed some of their work to their parents and carers.

Thank you to everyone that came to the Samba Celebration.

Crowden Outdoor Activity Centre…

Despite the weather Year 6 had a fabulous time on their residential visit to Crowden Outdoor Activity Centre.

Their daring but thrilling activities included: kayaking, abseiling, zip wire and crate stack.  After their exciting  challenges they had delicious, home-cooked meals and then had time to relax with friends.

All pupils and staff  thoroughly enjoyed the trip and highly recommend  the visit to  the current Year 5  children!

A huge thank you…

I would just like to say a huge thank you to all the children, staff, parents and carers for supporting World Mental Health Day.  You all looked amazing dressed in yellow and you raised £101 which will go to the Young Minds charity.  This charity supports children, young people and their families who have, or are suffering from, mental health issues.

If you would like to know more about this charity then please visit

All the children have worked together and supported each other to complete a number of activities designed to promote positive social and emotional well being.

With thanks
