Wow! What a great start to the year!

We’ve already made such amazing progress, thanks so much to all the parents and carers for all their help and support.

Our new classes have made new friends, learnt lots about what goes on in school and settled in to our classroom space with joy and growing confidence.

Our theme is respect and we’ve talked about being polite and kind to each other, as well as looking after school property and trying to keep everything neat, tidy and in working order!

Now it’s time to learn all about letters and their sounds so that we can begin to read and write.


Look out for our Fact Finders so you can find out all about the best ways to support your child and join in with their learning journey.

We've been learning about the Little Red Hen and how she planted the seed, grew some wheat and took it to the miller before she made bread from the flour. Our cook Kate came to help us make bread rolls - they were delicious!

We have been reading 'Oliver's Vegetables' so we decided that we would all taste some different vegetables like Oliver did. Kate the cook brought lots of vegetables for us to taste, we arranged them on a wrap, and then we ate them! Yum!
