We are very proud of our school and all of the opportunities that we give our pupils. We value all individuals, pupils and adults, and seek to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential, leaving them ready for the next stage in their learning journey.

We believe that we are an open and welcoming school and have excellent relationships with our parents. This is very important to us.

Fun in the Sun

Team Resilience enjoyed the fantastic weather this morning with an exciting outdoor maths lesson practising their mental and column calculation skills, whilst trying to solve a secret code hidden within the answers of the questions.

Trailblazers Y5/6 - nests for Munchkin eggs

Disaster in the wood today: the Goblins had stolen and hoarded all the Munchkin eggs for their annual feast. The challenge: find the hoard, build new, secure nests and relocate the eggs.

After some research, we figured out how to safely move the eggs and how to protect them from re-capture - the children were engaged, creative, collaborative and thorough...no doubt all eggs will now hatch and we will have a stable Munchkin population in the wood for the foreseeable future.

Trailblazers Y3/4 - shelter building

The children rigged tarps to protect them from the blistering sun! They used loppers and knives to make pegs and learned to tie a timber-hitch and sliding-lock-knot to rig the top-rope. After tarps were pegged, they then added features such as seats, carpets and security measures.

During the bucket test, all stayed dry...quality Tarpmanship!

Achievement Award Winners

Well done to our pupils for winning the Mathematics Star of the fortnight award. They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success in Mathematics. Also, a big congratulations to Jaimee who showed great perseverance and resilience in her classwork this week to overcome barriers and achieve success, for this you won the Headteacher's Special Award.

Trailblazers Y5 - mixed bag

Some children collected and prepared nettles for nettle dough-balls, others found, identified, dug up and potted saplings, a few developed a hay-bale structure, while others got creative with the paints. Finally, a small group practiced their fire lighting skills. 

All children were focused and productive, but I was super impressed with our gardeners today, who showed incredible care with the saplings, and went the extra mile by creating a little area to keep them safe once potted - to do this they independently used loppers and a sheath knife, demonstrating all the safety points learned over past sessions.

Sport Relief Mini-Mukker Fudraising!

A huge congratulations to all our children who took part in the Mini-Mukker Killer Kilometre for working really hard to collect their sponsorship money. The children have raised a huge total- as you can see below- which will help Sport Relief to tackle critical issues affecting people across the UK and the rest of the world. A huge thanks to parents and family for supporting the event and sponsoring the children. What a team effort!

Beat this!

The children were really excited by Dave Williams’ drumming demonstration in this morning’s assembly. Many were interested in learning to play the drums themselves so parents may want to consider sound proofing.

DHL Road Safety

Many thanks to the DHL team for bringing in their lorry to teach the children about road safety. Trucks and Child Safety (TACS) is a national safety training programme funded by the DHL UK Foundation. It aims to help keep children safe around larger vehicles on the road and targets children aged seven to 11 years old, as they start to travel independently. The things we learned will help to keep our pupils safe and road aware. We also got to have a look inside the lorry!
