Nursery’s Forest School sessions have begun again, with a view to continue throughout the summer term. The End of Week group had a lovely session in the sun yesterday (28.03.19) and were very busy indeed. Take a look:
On Wednesday 20th March, Nursery and Reception went on their first trip of the year to ‘Imagine That’ in Liverpool.
The children took part in several workshops where they made:
We have had a fabulous week in Reception. Look at all the things we have been up to. We have done Potato Printing and painted our very own Supertatoes!
Yesterday, 7th March, Year 6 took part in World Book Day. The whole school was involved in sharing stories and some amazing visitors (Sports coaches, Pets and the Governors) also shared their favourite books and tales with the children
During the day the Year 6 class participated in a wide variety of book-related activities:
We initially looked at Harry Potter and played Quidditch (Unfortunately in the Hall due to the weather) and we decided that it was a brilliant game that we’d play more of
Following Quidditch, we shared our stories with Year 3
After this, we read a section from the ‘Hunger Games’ by Suzanne Collins and became a district of Panem. We helld our own ‘reaping’ and worked out the probability that we may be picked as tributes. Dehean and Chloe ended up being our entrants in the imaginary ‘Hunger Games’.
In the afternoon, we read a section of the Time Machine by H.G Wells and became time travellers, speeding back through time finding out amazing facts about the past.
As our final activity we finished the school story (each class created a section on a magical tale) we have attached this below.
It was a great day
This week all our children took part in assemblies which looked at the importance of giving and obtaining consent or permission when using the internet.
We discussed examples and decided on the best advice on how to act responsibly online.
- If something makes you worried, uncomfortable or upset it’s always okay to say no.
- If you’re sure you’re happy and that others are happy with what will happen next then it’s okay to say yes if you have checked with adults.
- If what you’re doing online might affect somebody else, always ask their permission first.
- If you’re unsure or need further support then speak to an adult for help and advice.
School is open today. Please take care on the pavements and roads around school as underfoot may be icy.
Please be advised that school is closed today due to the snow.

Members of Totally Local Catering Team will be available to discuss the menu and answer any questions you may have regarding the catering service.
As a team, we are passionate about providing high quality, diverse and nutritional meals. We work in full partnership with your school to engage with your children and encourage a culture of healthy eating. Creating delicious and healthy menus that your children want to eat is our priority. Through our role, we help your children learn at a young age, that eating well can be fun and that food is central to their health and energy.
Each day, we provide your children with a delicious, wholesome hot meal. This is complemented by vegetables and salad, in addition to vegetarian options and options for those with special dietary needs; and of course, a dessert and variety of drinks. Catering for all pupils and staff, we will also work with the school to create a menu that meets the needs of any special diets.
Making food fun
We know it’s important to make healthy eating fun. Throughout the year we hold ‘theme days’ and competitions to encourage your children to think and healthy food in a positive way.
The food we use is locally sourced wherever possible. Over 85% of our menu is produced from raw ingredients by our professionally qualified staff. The meat in our dishes is Red Tractor, Freedom Foods or Halal certified. We procure fresh quality produce via reputable suppliers to ensure complete traceability of food.
Our current menus meet all food based standards and allergen laws; they include: Red Tractor or Farm Assured Meat and Poultry, fresh quality fruit and vegetables, two of the five daily portions of fruit and Marine Stewardship Council approved fish. All of our preparation and menus meet the full requirements of the food based standards and allergen laws.
We look forward to meeting you.
