We know that not all parents and carers can make our daytime parents' workshops, which is why we upload the slides and resources from each one to our website. Visit the parents' workshop area here for information on Phonics, times tables, Global Citizenship and much more!
Visitors often don't realise what an amazing range of outdoor spaces we have for learning here at the school. In fact it's possible to go from 'Italy' to 'Japan' and back to the allotment in the space of a lunchtime! You can read all about our outdoor spaces here, and see some wonderful photos. Parents and carers - don't forget the workshop on our outdoor curriculum taking place on 6th of March.
We're so excited and we just can't hide it....Thursday 17th January is Disco Dinners Day when we hope lots of children will come and enjoy disco-themed meals in their best spangly outfits!
