Welcoming new friends
As our new academic year begins, we are very pleased to see our new EYFS pupils, Eloise and Ella who have made a fantastic start in Class 1. We also, formally welcome Miss Vosper to our team as she takes on the role of KS2 teacher in Class 2. We are so happy to have them all with us.
The Year ahead
To ensure another successful year, we all need to work together to make our school a safe place in which to learn. The children and staff have discussed our Behaviour Policy which forms part of the inclusive ethos of our school. The children created their own set of Golden Rules which are:
Include everyone so that they feel welcomed.
Take care of each other by treating each other as we wish to be treated.
Respect each other by making sure we are listening to each other.
Share and be kind towards one another.
Give 100% effort in our learning.
Respect ourselves, others and the environment

Well-being Week February 2019
We believe that every child deserves to thrive and we work together with our families to support them to do just that. Recently, we gave over more of our curriculum time to focus on activities that promote a sense of well-being and to give the children strategies to cope with the ups and downs of life, such as yoga, weather massage, discussing our emotions and recognising how they affect us physically and how the different parts of our brain impact on our thoughts, feelings and actions. We culminated the week with a get-together with our families to make gifts for ourselves and for others, including Worry Dolls and Glitter Globes. We wrote positive messages to each other which we linked to our assembly about being 'Bucket Fillers' and not 'Bucket Dippers'!
Miss Gilberthorpe is leading weekly forest school sessions across the school. During our first sessions, children illustrated bunting to show what they hoped to do over the coming weeks, dens were built, clay monsters created and, above all, the children worked independently, beginning to understand how they need to take responsibility for managing risks in order to stay safe.
The children will be asked to bring waterproof clothing including stout footwear such as wellies or hiking boots and waterproof trousers, as we intend to go to the woods in fair weather or foul!
Please see our dedicated Forest School page for more information!
Thank you to friends and family for their support on our MacMillan Coffee afternoon - once again this was a great success. We are very proud of the way the School Council organised, greeted and generally took the lead in running this event. There are definitely a few leaders in business growing in our ranks!
We raised a fabulous £100.74 while enjoying lovely cakes and great company.
Blue Planet Fortnight
We are excited to be taking part in a project inspired by the current concerns about the negative impact of plastic on our environment which was highlighted on David Attenborough's recent programme 'The Blue Planet'.

Whole School Trip to Eden
We had a wonderful day out at the Eden Project this year. The trip linked to our topics of 'Gardening' (KS2)and 'Jack and the Beanstalk' (EYFS/KS1) but was also planned as a reward for a year of learning!
