Happy New Year!

It has been good to see all our children and families again after the long Christmas break. The children look rested and have made an excellent start to the new term. I have been especially impressed with this week’s Learning Launches, which have got our cross-curricular work off to a splendid start by igniting the children’s imaginations, engaging their enthusiasm and promoting their love of learning new ideas and knowledge.

Well done to all our Key Stage 1 children and staff, who came to school today as fairy tale characters to set the scene for ‘Once Upon a Time’. Year 3 and Year 4 have enjoyed Tray Bakes, Scavenger Hunts and a Quiz all on a Chocolate theme. Our pupils in Year 5 had the unforgettable experience of Escape Live Secret Service, while our Year 6 students took part in Operation Code Breaker. An icy surprise lies in store next week for our Reception children.
