It was lovely to see Mrs Grant in school this afternoon. She popped in to say hello to the children and told them how much she is looking forward to teaching them after half term, working together with Mrs Ann Gremin for a few week until she is back full time. Mrs Grant is planning lots of lovely things to do with the children, continuing the work they have been doing about animals... exploring other areas of the world.


We were delighted to hear that 'Baby Ferrett' arrived today! Lauren and Tom have a baby girl who arrived safely this morning! The children were so excited to hear the news! We have sent our love and best wishes to them.

I have really enjoyed the first two days of teaching in Kingfishers class. We have hit the ground running, becoming writers, geographers, artists and scientists in our topic on Africa. Thank you to the parents who have let their children bring in books and artefacts to help with our studies. We promise to look after them.

AfricaWe had great fun this afternoon doing the NSPCC workout in our PE lesson. We did a circuit of activities which tested our skill and stamina. Thank you if you have been able to get sponsors for this activity. There's still time to get more! Please bring all your donations and the completed form back into school by Monday 16th October.

To help keep your child's uniform clean during our creative sessions, it would be really helpful if you could send in an old shirt for them to keep in school as a paint shirt.

Check the 'Home Learning' section of our class webpage every Friday to keep up to date with what you can do to support your child's learning at home.
