The Lazy Farmer

Thursday, 26 September 2019

An unexpected visit from a Lazy Farmer, left the children in Year 1 a little bemused as to why he would be eating chocolates and falling asleep – just like the character they have been reading about.

They quickly took the opportunity to give him some very good advice on working hard and eating a more healthy diet.

He took some convincing to eat a pear! They told me that he would definitely try to do better in future.

A fantastic visit enjoyed by all the pupils and good memories stored.




Easter Has Arrived

Professor Broccoli’s ABC adventure at the zoo.

Thursday, 28 February 2019

A M Christian came in to school to read to our younger pupils.

Written in alliterative  verse, this beautifully illustrated book takes us on a journey through the alphabet and a zoo in the company of Professor Brocolli.

The children were introduced to lots of interesting and colourful characters.


Man-made or Natural

Tuesday, 22 January 2019

This beautiful winter morning Reception and Nursery pupils  put on their warm coats and hats, pulled on our wellies and went for a walk around the school playing field. We were looking for items and deciding if they were natural or man-made. 

The sun was warm on our backs and cast long shadows, something else to chat about.


Still it was nice to come back in to the warmth of the Nursery where we read a lovely book called Stick Man.

Wellbeing week starts!

Monday, 18 June 2018

All the children and as many staff as possible, took to the field for a 15 minute walk to start the day. This was the first day of our wellbeing week and it looks like they all enjoyed the fresh air, sunshine and chat! Lets hope the weather stays nice for the rest of the week.

Year 4 trip to Poole’s Cavern

Monday, 14 May 2018

Year 4 went to Poole’s Cavern in Derbyshire last week. They explored the caverns which were dramatically lit and amazing.

Once out of the caverns they then walked up to Solomon’s Tower





Trip to the Gurdwara

Thursday, 22 March 2018

Year two enjoyed their visit to the Gurdwara in Coventry. We were met by Mr Dhaliwal who took us all round the building. The children were able to hear all about the Sikh religion, see the prayer hall with the holy book and the Langar where warm food is available daily. All the children were given a bag of crisps and a drink – the offering of food is very much a part of the Sikh religion.

Langar is the term used in Sikhism for the community kitchen in a Gurdwara where a free meal is served to all the visitors.  Everything we saw was interesting and very beautiful.

Year 5 Art Week

Tuesday, 20 March 2018

Thank you again to parents who came in for the Art afternoon.

Year 5 children began painting their moonscapes.

Parents were a great help and the children were happy to let them work hard on their sculptures (I think they worked harder than the children!).
