Dressin’ Up for the day

Today is a school wide dressing up day! The children have really gone for it and look fantastic. We are raising much needed cash for school funds – you can still make a donation online or to the collection buckets. There will be a collection on each gate this evening and more photos uploaded after school.

Thanks to everyone who has been involved in getting the children ready for today.

Year 1 @ 3pm

Have you ever wondered what happens in a school 20 minutes for the end of the day? Some people might assume that this is the time the children start winding down…

Not here! Having been around the school this afternoon, there was nothing but classes and children still engrossed in their learning.

Year 1 were all working on their reading in small groups, during a guided reading session.

Year 1 – Day 1… sort of!!

There was a palpable sense of relief as the gates opened across the school site this morning. For many of the children, this was the first day in school for over 8 weeks.

The school sounds and feels like a very happy place and any signs of anxiety seem to have evaporated during the course of the day. Mr. Absolom has zipped around the school to capture a few photos of each year group in-situ!

Year 1 Gallery

‘The Chick and the Fire’ – Directed by Thea, lit by Essie!

Welcome to the Year 1 blog! Over the coming weeks, we will be using this page to keep parents and families up to date with the children’s achievements in class.

We are so excited that we will all be back together from next Monday (8th March).

In the future, you will be able to check this page to see what amazing learning is happening in both Rainforest and Jungle classes.

As a starter, we have put together a gallery of just a small sample of the fantastic work we have had sent in during this period of school closure.

Please remember this just a small sample of all the beautiful work that has been sent in over the past 8(!) weeks. Try to view it as a celebration of the collective effort and not become disheartened if an individual is not represented.
