We want our pupils to enjoy coming to school and to be enthusiastic about learning. We will nurture and encourage pupils and hopefully, inspire them to be active participants in their own development and education.

Our Wow Week-Mad about Mini-beasts!

This week, Reception thoroughly enjoyed their “Mad about Mini-beasts” WOW week! They enjoyed making mud cakes, bumble bee and ladybird biscuits which they enjoyed with hot chocolate, after their adventure to Forest school! The children went on a bug hunt, exploring plants and Mini-beasts in the local area. They took part in a bug ball, dancing and singing a range of songs.
