Our Harvest Celebration

Thank you to everyone who came to join in with our harvest celebrations. We were so proud of our children! They have been practising new songs to share and producing beautiful artwork and poetry. We especially liked the way our Year R pupils taught their families the words and actions for ‘Big Red Combine Harvester’. We are so pleased to be sending the food that was kindly donated to Youth and Families Matter.

Well done Brian!

Congratulations! What a resilient learner.

What a lovely way to spend a Sunday in autumn: out and about in the forest getting active on a dog walk. If any one is planning to do this during half term, here is a great resource from the Forestry commission to keep you busy!

Fantastic phoneme home learning!

Fantastic phoneme home learning!
One of our Badgers has visited Christchurch today and has spotted lots of things beginning with the sounds that she has been learning. Fantastic detective work! How many things can you see beginning with any of these sounds: m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g or o?
