A message from the Co-Heads of School…

This week the children in school have been working hard in their new ‘Community Bubbles.’ They have created their own Community Bubble Charter, which sets out clearly the new expectations agreed by all children to keep themselves safe in school. Using their charters, the children have become experts at social distancing and even our youngest children are remembering to stop at the blue spots in school. Our one-way system is easy to follow and is working well to allow children to move safely around school.

This week takes our themed learning to the letter K. They have made kites, explored koalas and kangaroos, made shields for knights and became Kings and Queens of Tiny Things!

All of the children have spent time this week exploring kindness and completing kind acts towards others but also importantly, to ourselves!


Congratulations to everyone who took part in our Run Around the World. A determined final effort over the weekend saw us exceed our 40,000km target by 3,000km. Check our website later today for more details on the route we took.

Make no mistake, this is an amazing achievement. Well done to the many hundreds of staff and children who accepted the challenge.

The total amount raised to support NHS staff and volunteers for caring for Covid -19 patients has reached a grand total of £4040.


Creative Science Challenge – Fizzy Lava Lamps

Why not have a go at making a Fizzy Lava Lamp using bicarbonate of soda, sunflower oil, food colouring and water in a jar. Put a torch behind it to watch the bubbles dance. Children will be fascinated by watching the bubbles move up and down, and it can help little ones to calm down, too.



For the ‘How I see Tomorrow’ project children around the world can share their artwork. Create a picture, a drawing, a painting, a photograph, or even a piece of sculpture that tells the story of how you’re spending your time whilst staying at home. Next, draw your vision of the future and upload both pieces of artwork at www.howiseetomorrow.com. Three winners (one in each age group: 0 – 6 years, 7 – 13 years and 14 years+) will win £250 Hobbycraft vouchers, plus every Wednesday the most inspiring entry will win a £25 voucher. Selected entries will be displayed in galleries and museums worldwide! The competition ends on 30 June – Good Luck!
