Jubilee Celebrations

On Friday 27th June we had a wonderful day celebrating the Queen's Jubilee. We danced through the decades, played rounders, made marvelous cross stich creations and had a go at archery. At lunch we had a party on the playground and we even got to have our photo taken with a special someone!

National Storytelling Week

On the 3rd of February we joined into a live zoom with Jonny Duddle, the illustrator of the Harry Potter books to learn more about illustration and to try our hand at drawing Hagrid. 

Anderson Shelters 

 Consisting of a wooden frame structure, corrugated cardboard shell and free choice decoration we have worked hard to create these miniature models and we are very proud of them. Have a browse through the gallery below to see some more pictures of our wonderful work. 

Dan the Skipping Man

On the 11th January we had a visit from Dan the Skipping man who taught us many new skills including Double Dutch, Pretzel, Rodeo  and the Double under. We had a class session in the hall and we were all able to jump into the long rope and those of us who are Playleaders had a lunchtime session so we could share our skipping skills.
