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.

Latest updates from our school

AVSSP Cricket Festival

Some of our Year 6 pupils enjoyed taking part in the AVSSP Cricket Festival at Denby Cricket Club, developing their skills ahead of the forthcoming cricket season.


Achievement Assembly Winners

The assembly began today with a tribute to our incredible year 6 pupils who have worked so hard throughout the year so far and who performed incredibly well in their SAT tests throughout the week.

SAT tests can be a nerve-racking and stressful experience, but with dedication, hard work, determination and application, the children proved they were more than ready- for which we are most proud.

The children across the school were also recognised for their effort and hard work in English this week- many for improved independence in their writing.

Finally, we celebrated the excellent behaviour in school again this week and the way the children always get on so well together- the end to an extremely positive week.

Classes explored flowers further this week by looking at techniques for drawing their shapes and spacing / overlapping petals accurately.  We then considered how pencil crayons could be blended to accurately match the colours found on the petals.  


Following this, we had a go at drawing and colouring a flower of our choosing - there were some wonderful examples!

Lower School have continued work of an Egyptian theme, with more mehen boards and canopic jars being completed.  Additionally, a group have undertaken a foraging challenge, culminating in them making soup.  

Upper School have made good progress with weaving, with other children answering a call for help from Flame - a munchkin fashion show is being hosted in the KJS wood and he needed a fashion arena constructing in addition to a line of themed clothing to be showcased at the event!


The children decided on a habitat themed arena, with clothing being made inspired by these different habitats - they Collaborated incredibly well and showed awesome Independence. 


Achievement Assembly Winners

Well done to the boys and girls recognised by their teacher in today's Achievement Assembly for their effort and hard work throughout the week, and in particular those children awarded the Mathematics Star of the week award.


Coronation Crown Winners

Well done to all of the boys and girls who entered our Coronation Crown Competition. The creativity and artistic talent was so high that the crowns really are fit for the King himself.

As part of our work around British Values, and the true meaning of Democracy, all of the children had the opportunity to vote for their favourite and the winners are photographed below.

Celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III

To commemorate the crowning of King Charles III, we held a special day of celebration in school whereby  the children designed and made their own Coronation Crown and we held a special outdoor Coronation Picnic.

This week in TB - WC 02/05/23

All groups started this week by considering pollination; we discussed what we thought we knew about it, observed a dramatic representation of the process (Garry as the flower (obviously) and me the bee) and then looked at images of bees covered in pollen and diagrams of the parts of flowers.  


Following this, we went hunting for flowers and recorded the range of different colours we found the petals to be - we also identified the parts needed for pollination such as the anther, stigma, nectaries and ovary. 


Lower School then rotated round canopic jars, mehen board making and pyramid building; three more courses of bricks and the pyramid should be complete and ready to receive the mummified body of Tutanfishmun.  


Upper School rotated around weaving-frame manufacture, fabric collaging and cooking; with the cooking, we made a soup using flora foraged from the school site: hawthorn leaves, wild garlic, Jack by the hedge, broad-leafed plantain, cleavers and nettles (thanks to Ali for adding the foraging string to the TB bow two years ago!). 


Fruity Friday

Our Magic Breakfast Fruity Friday continues to be a real hit with pupils with our team serving up warm bagels with a selection of fruity toppings and of course bananas and satsumas.

A perfect start to the day.

EMBARK Teaching and Learning Strategy Group

It was lovely to host the EMBARK Teaching and Learning Strategy group today and listen to their discussion around the use of research based approaches to improve outcomes for pupils, and the effective use of live feedback to make a difference to  pupil outcomes.IMG_1706 Large

Achievement Assembly Winners

Well done to the children awarded certificates in today's Achievement Assembly, recognised by their teacher for their hard work throughout the week. Well done also to the English Stars of the week, the children recognised by their teacher for their hard work in English.

Finally, a huge well done to Year 6 pupil Connor, who challenged himself to conduct a litter pick every day in April, not only making a difference to local people but also raising £350 for the charity Cancer Research UK- what an inspiration and role model to others.
