  1. Children in Need

    Friday 18th November was Children in Need day. The children donated £1 for coming to school in non-uniform and this along with our traditional cake sale raised just over £179. Thank you to everyone who donated and bought cakes for this great cause.

  2. Leaves

    Autumn leaves into art

    Leaves of many colours have been falling in our playground for the last few weeks and we decided to make the most of this beauty in our own artwork. These leaves are now owl’s wings and hedgehog’s spikes. Look out for these little creatures next time you are walking around the school!

  3. Autumn Hunt

    The weather may not have been kind to us but we weren’t going to let a little bit of rain ruin Friday’s Autumn hunt. Prepared for every eventuality, the whole school donned wellies, woolies and waterproofs and our eager group of nature seekers headed for the Blows Downs.

    Each child had their own tick list of plants and animals they had to try and spot on our walk and a treasure bag to fill with natural goodies we found on our way. The children had a lovely time exploring footpaths and hedgerows and bags were soon bursting with brightly coloured leaves, shiny conkers, seed pods, rose hips, feathers, crab apples and lots more. We also found things that we couldn’t put in our bags, including various wild berries, fungi and a giant animal hole that sparked imagination.

    Everyone ended up a little soggy, but the bonus of rain – lots of puddles to splash around in! And best of all…starving after so much exploring…we arrived back just in time for lunch!
