Evacuation Day!

We have had a wonderful start back after our week off for the half term holiday. Year R have been very busy studying shapes, learning more about dinosaurs and have been exploring magnetism.

World Book Day (belated!)

It’s been a very different term – something we have never experienced before with many challenges but lots of lovely surprises. The children have responded brilliantly and we are thrilled with their learning and outcomes since their return.
