Our school has 180 pupils aged 4-7. All the classes are names after birds. The Ducklings and Penguins Year R, Owls and Goldfinches Year 1 and Swallows and Robins Year 2. All our year groups work very closely together as a team across the school.
We have a lively and interactive curriculum with first hand experiences for children to encourage a love of learning and awareness of the world around them. We plan visits or visitors to enhance our learning – making learning fun, interactive and memorable. We build on children’s experiences and make links to prior and future learning as part of their curriculum journey.
We plan special event weeks through the year throughout the year with a key learning focus eg writing and drama. The special event weeks allow us to plan fun, absorbing, creative weeks that are a HUGE success.

October 2019 – The Scarecrow’s Wedding
This was a week based on Julia Donaldson’s book “The Scarecrow’s Wedding.” We linked this story to the forthcoming wedding of one of our teachers and harvest festival. We planned a real wedding 0- the wedding dress made by Year R from recycled materials, we wrote invitations, menus and made table decorations, scarecrows and printed our own table cloths. The “wedding” took place in our school hall and we were all invited! We wore our best clothes and celebrated at the wedding reception. Click here to see The Scarecrow’s Wedding newsletter.
