Welcome to Miss Harris

Sadly Mrs Coop left us at the end of last term. We all wish her well in her new job.

Working with us on a Friday now is Mrs Rebecca Harris. We met her just before Christmas and look forward to her starting at the end of this week.

Party Time! Merry Christmas to you all


All children went home this week with a log in to some maths games on the Active Learn Primary website.

They have a username and password and there is a message for grown ups about e-safety. 

Autumn 2-The Bog Baby

We read the book The Bog Baby by Jeanne Harris

Our groups this term are :

Shells, Bluebells, Magic Ponds and Daisy Petals which are all in the book.

Can you find them?


We went on a Bog Baby Hunt but we didn't find any. We think they were asleep or scared of us.

Hunting for Bog Babies...

Autumn 1 Jolly Roger

We had such fun learning all about Evil Captain Abdul, Blackbeard, Ann bonny and Pirate Pete. Pirate Pete came to our school and dropped some biscuits, so we cooked some just like his using a very old pirate recipe. He also buried his treasure on our land. We found his map and went on a hunt to find his treasure. Guess what? We found all the booty!

Pirate Day- so scary but great fun!
