We want to congratulate Jody on his football talent! Despite being too young to be on the team, his talent and determination wowed them so much, they offered him a place at Chelsea FC development centre! Well done Jody! ⚽️⚽️⚽️

RIP Queen Elizabeth II

I'm sure many of us hoped and thought our Queen was immortal and she would be with us forever, touching our lives in one way or another.

Her strength, loyalty, wisdom and kind heart captured and inspired us all. How truly lucky we are to have had her in our lives for such a long period of time.

Thank you, Your Majesty, for your devotion to your country and your Commonwealth. Our thoughts and love are with your family at this time.

May you rest in peace.

Mental Health Week

The theme for this year's mental health week is ‘loneliness’.

The children and staff have been busy this week thinking about their well-being. We have been thinking about the 5 steps to well-being and focusing on the step ‘Take Notice’. The children have been thinking about what it might feel like to feel lonely and
ways in which to help others if they are feeling alone.

Nursery - exciting changes!!

We have places available in our nursery from September and I am delighted to announce that we are offering a more flexible system. We will be accommodating both the 15 and 30 hours funded places in a flexible way. We are in the process of finding out what parents want so please do get in contact if you are looking for a flexible nursery place. Mr Broughton will be able to speak with you to discuss your preferences.

We are working on a brand-new nursey brochure and information regarding session timings and top-up costs. So watch this space!

To celebrate Poetry Week, Year 1 have been enjoying reading poems from the book 'Out and About', written and illustrated by Shirley Hughes.

Inspired by the poem Mudlark, they went to Forest School and had an opportunity to play with water and mud. The children then became poets themselves, writing their own version of the poem from the experience of playing with mud and water

In Year Two, we have written haikus, acrostic poems and kenning poems too.

The children enjoyed exploring dragon poems at the start of the week to inspire their
writing and picked out different poetic techniques to use in their own poetry such as
rhyme, alliteration, similes, repetition and the use of powerful vocabulary.
