World Book Day

World Book Day 2018 takes place on Thursday, March 1st. As part of this event we are encouraging children (and parents) to enjoy the pleasures of reading and SHARE A STORY on World Book Day… and every day. Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their outcome and it’s fun for all involved. You can read together anywhere and everywhere, from breakfast to bedtime! In the park, on the train, on the sofa, on a plane – reading and sharing stories can happen anywhere at any time.

Energy Survey

We are conducting a questionnaire to find out about energy consumption in our homes as part of our work on the Green-Schools programme. If you could take a few minutes to complete the questionnaire, we would be grateful. Thank you.

What have we been up to?

We were practising our rolling and patterns with our play-dough and mats.


We have made some cool calm down bottles to help when we are worried or sad.

We were learning about hundred squares and we had to complete a hundred square jigsaw.


We were practising our fine motor skills by using small beads and boards.
