...have had a lovely morning in the sun today. We wrapped up warm and used the orienteering course to practise our times tables. 

Year 4 - Flat Caps

For PE we did Orienteering. We had to use our mapwork skills to find points around the school grounds and answer times table themed questions. Our teamwork was great with 6 groups successfully finishing all 25 questions, getting them all correct - well done!

Christmas Fun in Year 4!

Christmas Fayre - KS1 Choir Performance

The key stage one choir sang beautifully at the Christmas Fayre on Friday - we are all so proud of them for giving such a wonderful performance!

Baking Bread

Flat Caps created bread to please the Roman emperor. We used our maths skills to weigh and measure ingredients and then we learnt about kneading and proving. The bread we made was delicious!

Year One are Helping the Hedgehogs!


In year one we have been learning about woodland animals and their habitats this week. We found out that hedgehog numbers are declining because their habitats are being damaged or even destroyed.

So, we decided to help our hedgehogs! 

Today we designed and made hedgehog homes - thinking about all the features the homes would need to keep the hedgehogs safe, warm and camouflaged.

The children really enjoyed creating these super homes and they did a fantastic job - well done year one!

Flat Caps 

As part of reading our class book 'The Fatal Fire', we sat around our firepit to read the next part of the story. We put paper cubes at edge of the fire, imaging they were the houses in the story to see how the fire spread. It was fascinating to see how quickly the houses caught light. We wrote lots of phrases from our experience, such as 'lingering smoke', 'flames danced like ballerinas' and 'crackling like popcorn'.

Year one have enjoyed a super start to the new school year...

We have been exploring our school and writing information posters.

We have to learning about seasonal changes and looking for the signs of Autumn.

This week we’ve had an exciting delivery from the Jolly Postman! We can’t wait to find out more about him and his friends!😁

New School Year - 2022/23

Year 2 Beach day!

Year 2 have had fun doing their first beach day activity this morning! We have been playing in the water, building in the sand and enjoying some beach games. 


As part of our current topic on the rainforest we have been learning about the different layers of the rainforests. Miss Cope and Miss Maddocks set the children a homework project to create a rainforest in a box showing the different layers and some of the animals that live within them.


We have been BLOWN AWAY by the incredible rainforests the children have made! Here are some children showing off their amazing creations! 

KS2 Sports Day - Friday 8th July 2022

KS1 Sports Day - Friday 8th July 2022

Forest School After School Club

Key stage 2 children have had a great time at Forest School After School club. They have made dens, bracelets and created crafts in the woodland from logs, wood and clay. They even made a rope course where they could walk between trees. The children really loved cooking with the fire and eating pancakes. 

Nature Area!

Year 5 have been making the most out of the warm weather and spending time in the Forest Area. They were set the challenge of creating a den using a tarpaulin and rope - they loved this challenge and really rose to the challenge. 

Reading Buddies!

This afternoon the children in Year Two enjoyed sharing our reading books with reading buddies from Year Five. It was great reading outside - and we just missed a sudden downpour at two o'clock!

Year 2 RNLI Talk!

Even though we have had to postpone our beach day, Year 2 have still had an amazing day! We were lucky enough to have David Meads come into school to tell us all about the RNLI and keeping safe on the beach. We learnt what the different flags mean and talked about some of the dangers. We also learnt about the seaside. It was quite a surprise when we thought about all the things we might need to take with us to the beach - that's a lot in one beach bag! The children loved it!
