Child of the Week!

Each week we will choose one child from each class to be our 'Child of the Week'. All week we will be looking for children have worked hard, tried their best and are following our Good to be Green Rules.

Reading Champions!

We expect the children to read at least 5 times a week at home and have their yellow reading diaries signed.

Each week we will be celebrating those children who have read at least 5 times during the week and we will report on both classes overall percentage of children who have read 5 or more times.

Let's see which class will have the most Reading Champions....!


The Little Red Hen

This week the children have written the story The Little Red Hen. We have read the story, acted it out and re-told the story in our own words.

Bee Bots

Mrs Ratcliffes class have loved learning about the BeeBots this week. They learnt how to program them and spent time with their friends programming them to move around the room.


Year 1 have been working really hard in English this week to make sentences that make sense and to then write these sentences. We are really pleased with how quickly they have settled down to the more structure routines of Year 1.

We have also been producing some wonderful art this week in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. The children collected their own materialsand then created their own masterpieces. Their finished pieces were very effective and they loved creating them.
