We will, as our pupils are growing and learning with us, care for, support and safeguard them whilst striving to encourage them to be responsible citizens and do the same for each other and their wider community.
We will strive to ignite our pupils’ desire and enthusiasm to learn without limits.
We will aim to encourage our pupils and school community to develop academically and socially which will develop their desire to explore the wider world, skilled and equipped to find out even more.
We will foster belief through believing in yourself, taking on challenges and digging deep within yourself to conquer fears.
Year one had the pleasure of meeting some new friends today, Coco the skunk, Sonny the meerkat (he caused the most excitement), Mrs Boo the owl, Fluffy the tarantula, Thorn the Hedgehog, Cloud the chinchilla, Crobby and Patty the sugar gliders, Ripple the rosy bower, Curly the giant African land snail, Shadow the skink and Slow Coach the tortoise.
All of the children had the chance to hold and stroke a range of animals, some children fed the skunk and wore the handlers glove in order to hold the owl.
All of the children listened really well and got so much from it, the lady from Animal Magic Parties was so knowledgable and shared lots of interesting facts with us. Did you know that if a spider loses a leg, it has the ability to grow another one? Also if you pull on a blue tongued skink's tail, it detaches itself and runs away.
Thank you for your donations to make this possible for all of the children!
Year one have been very lucky this week, we have had a special author and illustrator in school, Katie Weaver. The children had the chance to meet and talk to Katie about her new book Christmas Elfabet. We learnt about the planning stage right up to when the final book is published. Thank you very much Katie for spending your time with us, you inspired a lot of our us and we had a lovely time!

The six ways to be smart showcase was fabulous! The children had the opportunity to show off their own work and look at what everyone else had been up to across the school. We all thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you everyone for putting in all the hard work.
Children in year one have been learning how to programme the bee-bots. They have been navigating them around a map to different destinations, using the vocabulary North, South, East and West. We have learnt a couple of special ways to remember the cardinal directions: Never Eat Shredded Wheat and Naughty Elephants Squirt Water.
