We are so excited to be teaching your children this year!

Spring - Can I switch it on?/Will you read me a story?

Summer - What's that sounds?/Are we there yet?

A squash and a squeeze was our book for maths and art day. We practiced number sentences by working out how many animal legs in total and got crafty with making farm animals

Well done Reception for starting the golden mile - we were a little tired after but they kept on going

We love having the guinea pigs visit and learning how to look after them

We took to the skies to see how far our planes flew and measured them using a grid

What’s that sound? We went on a listening walk and listed the sounds that we could hear

I can perform a magic trick. We learnt our number bonds to 5 and impressed our friends by magically knowing how many blocks were hiding behind their back
