1st and 2nd in the Outdoor Classroom!!


We’ve been busy in 1st and 2nd class this term in our new outdoor classroom! We’ve been learning about soil, worms and planting chestnuts. It has been a great opportunity to ‘bring the outside in’ and the ‘inside out’!

World Book Day Wednesday 3rd March

Today is World Book Day!

For homework the children are encouraged to “Curl up with a Book”.  It would be great if you could do the same!

Thank you to all the children who made such an effort to dress up today.  We had some wonderful costumes.  Mrs Barbara Smith happened to drop in and she picked the winners and Mary Poppins dropped by to give out the prizes! Unfortunately we couldn’t give everyone a prize but whether you won a prize or not, everyone who dressed up are winners in our eyes!

Happy Reading!
