This term we will be looking at the following value:



Dear Parents,

We are excited to inform you that we have arranged two transition mornings before the end of term. Both transition mornings will take place between 9.15-11.50 on Tuesday 12th and Tuesday19th July. From September, Miss Airey will be taking on the role of SENCO with Mrs Rawson leaving us at the end of the summer term. They are working hard to ensure a smooth transition ready for the start of the new school year.

Have a great weekend!

Mr Griffin.

On Tuesday we had our Energy Awareness Day. We had an assembly first thing and then classes carried out a variety of activities outside. Less electricity was used by not using lighting or any electrical equipment. We combined the day with our school grounds topic. Everyone enjoyed spending time outside gardening, making bug hotels  and lots of other activities.

In FSU this week we have really enjoyed reading the story Peace at Last by Jill Murphy. We identified all the places Mr Bear tried to sleep and what disturbed him in each place, even the youngest children joined in with sharing their ideas. 








What a fantastic day we had at the Cotswold Wildlife Park! It was a lovely sunny day and we saw so many amazing animals. Some of our favourites were the meerkats, the rhinos and the wolves. We chatted about whether they were carnivores, herbivores, predators or prey. Then we enjoyed having a snack in the shade whilst we watched the giraffes. In the afternoon, Miss Airey played a trick! We were surprised to find out we were going on the train! It was so much fun and we waved at lots of people. On the way home we were so tired from all our fun that lots of us had a sleep! What an amazing day!  Well done for all your amazing behaviour Year 1 and 2.






Year 3 and 4 took part in Energy Awareness day and spent the whole morning completing activities outside the classroom. We saved energy by not using technology and even made some bug hotels to help our outside environment. 





Year 5 and 6 celebrated Energy Awareness Day this week by switching off from the electricity in the classroom and going outside to make land art and bug houses. They loved the experience and made wonderful creations!
