On Monday 25th March, we held a very ‘Egg-citing’ Easter Hat Competition in school. Children and their parents really worked hard to create some extraordinary hats and these were all celebrated in class. (see photographs below)

Our Chair of Governors, Mrs Dunkley, was then given the very difficult task of choosing a winning hat from each of our 23 classes and an overall winner in school.

Congratulations to our class winners below. Our TWO overall winners were Ryan and Greyson – they received an additional prize and their hats were worn by Mr Pridden, our bingo caller, at Easter Family Bingo!

WELL DONE to all our entrants – your hats were all excellent!

On Friday 9th and Monday 12th February, all children in school took part in our sponsored pancake flip – trying to flip as many (wooden) pancakes as possible in two minutes!

As you can see from the photographs below, the children had a great time taking part. THANK YOU for your very generous sponsorship and MANY THANKS to all the adults who came into school to help with counting flips – we really could not run the sessions without your support.


Over the past two weeks, all children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have performed their Christmas Sing-a-longs and Nativities to packed audiences in our school hall. Thank you to all our families for supporting these events..

.. and well done to all our children- their singing and acting has been amazing!

Here are photographs from each performance –

The Life Education Caravan

This week the children visited the Life Education Caravan at school. There they met Harold the giraffe.

The children in Nursery helped Harold to get ready for school, using the items in his wash bag and talked about the importance of washing, cleaning our teeth and brushing our hair.

The children in Reception spoke to Harold on the phone and told him what sort of things made them feel happy. Some of their ideas included ‘smiling’, ‘going to the park’, ‘playing with my friends’ and ‘eating ice-cream’. 🙂

Nursery Cake Sale

For World of work week this year in Early Years we decided to learn all about chefs and bakers. We were lucky enough to have a chef come in to bake with us. Thanks again Mr Ball!

The children enjoyed baking and decorating cakes, writing recipes, counting cakes and guessing how many we could bake. It was a very busy week! Nursery ended the week with a fantastic cake sale!​

We would also like to thank all the parents and carers who supported us in coming to our cake sale on Thursday. The children absolutely loved preparing for it and the great turn out was fantastic!


Reception’s Red Nose Day Cake Sale

The children in Reception have been very busy this week making cakes and biscuits to sell on Red Nose Day. The children sent out invitations to their parents, inviting them to come into class on Friday for our cake sale. We also made posters and displayed these on our classroom doors. At home time today, we had lots of families and friends that joined us in class to buy cakes and helped us to raise money for Comic Relief. Thanks to the fantastic support, we are pleased to announce that the cake sale raised £109.50! Thank you so much to everyone that came along! 🙂

Whole School Total now confirmed –  £537.45
