A busy half term in Reception


This half Reception children were very busy getting ready for Christmas celebration. They have been making own salt dough decorations, learning about Christmas traditions in different cultures, taking part in their Christmas assembly and performing Christmas concert to their parents. We finished our half term with our first local trip to St Cuthberts Church.

Children in Need

Remembrance Day


The children have been very busy making poppies out of sustainable materials. They painted a plastic bottle which every child added to the instillation. Every child was given a name of a solder which they were able to think about and have a moment of reflection for.

Learning letters and sounds

Children were very enthusiastic during their first RWInc sessions this week. They were so keen to learn new sounds and to form letters.

This weeks adult led outdoor activity -Andersen.

Andersen Class enjoyed some outdoor fun this week. We used the parachute to play some games to help form good relationships with our peers.



Our staff team consists of Miss Bell (Andersen class) and Mrs Bisset (Attenborough class) and supported by Mrs Grant, Mrs Osborne, Mrs James and Mrs Sims. Our classes are named after Hans Christian Andersen who is a famous children's author and Sir David Attenborough -an English broadcaster, natural historian and author.
