We have had a fantastic time getting to know the children in their first few days at school! The children have settled in brilliantly and have enjoyed exploring their classrooms.
This week the children have been looking closely to create super self portraits.
Internet Matters have designed a simple checklist to give families peace of mind regarding their child’s safety on the internet. You may find it useful to take a look at the poster below for guidance with this.
Welcome to our Year 2 blog! Please check in weekly to see what we have been up to at school.
What a brilliant first week back! The grownups have been so impressed at the resilience shown by all of the children in the way they have returned to school during such unique circumstances. We have spent time focusing on how we can all do our bit to help keep everybody safe, whilst catching up with our friends and doing lots of fun learning!
In Maths, we have been ordering numbers and using our knowledge of tens and ones to help us count amounts to 100. Our topic is all about plants and we will be sending home a seed with each child for them to use their expertise to look after and grow!
Please check your Seesaw accounts weekly, as that is where all home learning activities will be posted this year. Your login is the same as it was last year but if you have any trouble, please contact us.

Key Stage One
Years 3 & 4
We have had a fantastic first week in Year One! The children have been so passionate and excited about their learning which has been fantastic to see.
In class, we started reading a new book called ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers which the children have really enjoyed. Inspired by this, the children created their own planet stained glass windows.
The transfer to Secondary School admission round is now open and closes on 31 October 2020. Please follow the link below to find further guidance regarding the process.
We strongly recommend that you look at a variety of schools to help you to make informed choices. Secondary Schools often hold information events and Open Evenings; as yet we are unsure what provision will be made for this academic year in light of the Covid-19 outbreak. We suggest families keep an eye on the High School’s websites and will inform you of any further information we receive from Secondary Schools.
We are so excited to see your smiling faces tomorrow. Follow the signs to the Fieldfare Entrance and then come on down to the playground gate, where you will be able to drop off your child for the next three days. We will have the bubbles going and hopefully you will be able to spot some familiar faces from the story-time videos. We can’t wait to see you!
We are really looking forward to welcoming the nursery children into school next week!
You should have previously received a letter via email, with details of your child’s two transition sessions. The transition sessions will last for 1 and a half hours each and there will be a smaller number of children. Due to current restrictions parents are not able to attend the sessions and we are asking you to leave your child with us at the nursery gate. We will be happy to give you a call and let you know how they have settled.
As things currently stand we are expecting to go ahead with the proposed staggered entry for reception children (please see below). Class teachers have been busy getting the classrooms ready this week and are excited to welcome the children from Wednesday 9th September.
